Tony Springett could make his Derby debut against Wanderers this weekend after joining the Rams on loan from Norwich.

The 20-year-old winger has been with the Canaries since the age of 12 and made his senior debut in a Premier League fixture against West Ham at the back end of last season.

He has made two appearances this season and will spend the remainder of the season at Pride Park as Paul Warne’s side aim to win promotion back to the second tier at the first time of asking.

Springett is eager to get minutes under his belt in League One and help the Rams keep climbing the table.

He told the club’s website: “I need to be playing games and Derby was such a hard opportunity to turn down. I’m over the moon they even decided to offer me this.

“I found out around a week ago. It’s been quite a hard process because I had to decide whether to continue my journey with Norwich and try and burst into the Championship or come here and try and burst into a squad that are doing so well and trying to earn promotion.

“I think (Warne) is probably the main reason why I chose to come here. I had a couple of other choices but I had one facetime call with him and that made my decision straight away.

“He’s such a nice guy, easy to get along with and has pretty good banter to be fair so he made my decision for me.”

Derby are only ahead of Wanderers on goal difference ahead of Saturday’s clash at Pride Park, with both teams in good form.

Ian Evatt’s men recorded a comfortable 3-0 victory against Portsmouth over the weekend, while the Rams beat Cheltenham 3-2 at Sincil Bank.

The points were shared when the sides met at the University of Bolton Stadium last month following a goalless draw, with Dion Charles going closest to breaking the deadlock.

David McGoldrick, who has scored 11 goals in 25 appearances since the start of the campaign, was absent for Derby that day.
