Sky Bet Championship: Simon Dawkins edges closer to Derby return

Derby forward Simon Dawkins has made a return from injury with a run out for the development squad.

Dawkins, who has been out for a month with a hip-flexor problem, played for an hour and scored twice in a 3-1 win over Wolves at Wanderers' Sir Jack Hayward Training Ground.

The Jamaica international struck in each half with substitute Alban Bunjaku scoring the Rams' other goal, before the hosts pulled one back late on through Ibrahim Keita.

Midfielder Paul Coutts completed the 90 minutes as he also continues his comeback from a hip-flexor issue while defender Jake Buxton also played the full game.
