Derby are on a three-match unbeaten run and they are looking to extend it as they are set to take on Cambridge on Saturday.


Ahead of Saturday’s game at Pride Park, Rams boss Paul Warne has a problem on his hands as a host of first-team players are out due to injuries.




However, Cambridge boss Bonner refused to feel sorry for Warne, as he believes that the Rams boss already has top replacements ready at his disposal.


Bonner believes that despite Derby’s injury crisis, to get a result out of Pride Park his team have to be their very best.



“I am not going to feel too sorry for them because the players that they are missing are obviously top players, but they are not bad, the ones coming either”, Bonner said at a press conference.


“So I think when you play against these top teams, everyone will always miss their best players, no question, but at the same time, the calibre of players that are coming in to replace them is top, top level for the league we are in.



“They will be very strong, and we will have to, as always, be at a really high level to take something from the game and get a good result.”


Derby are in ninth place in the league table with 13 points from eight games and they will be determined to give themselves an opportunity to climb up the table by winning Saturday’s game.
