Derby County have confirmed the team’s first-choice batsman Will Macgregor will be sent back to the side in a bid to prevent further injuries.
The 29-year-old has been charged with violent conduct and misconduct after he was shown a red card during Saturday’s 4-0 defeat at Leeds.
Derby County coach Steve McClaren said he would discuss the matter with Macgregors management team in the coming days.
“Will is our top priority at the moment,” McClaren told the club website.
Macgregor, who is also a team-mates player at Derby, is not yet cleared to return to play and will be assessed on the field.
McClaren said the club had spoken to Macgregoris management but that he would be in no doubt as to whether he would face further action if he returns to the field against Bournemouth on Sunday.
“The first thing we need to do is make sure that we understand how serious this is and we have a team member who’s not fit to play,” he added.
We’ve got to make sure everyone stays out there.””
It’s not just about Will, it’s about everybody who’s got to stay out there.
We’ve got to make sure everyone stays out there.”
Derby’s top scorer in 2016, Macgregore made his debut in November 2015 and has scored two centuries, including the century he added in the 4-2 win at Leeds in December.
