However, Martin has yet to train.The 19-goal striker, who began his career with Norwich, has sat out seven games due to a hamstring injury and, although he is desperate to be involved, Derby head coach McClaren has stressed no risks will be taken on the fitness of those coming back from injury.Striker Darren Bent (hamstring) and midfielder John Eustace (knee) will not be available until the beginning of next month after the international break
