Derby County manager Nigel Clough: 'We've been aware of Watford's Craig Forsyth for a while'
Derby County boss Nigel Clough says the Rams have been aware of Craig Forsyth for a while and claims his one-month loan will be a chance to "have a look a little more closely".
Forsyth has this evening joined Derby on loan until April 1 following several injuries for the Rams.
Clough told Derby's website: "Craig is someone we’ve been aware of for a while and we’ve been impressed whenever we’ve seen him in action, so it’ll be good to have a look at him a little more closely.
"The injuries we’ve picked up of late have obviously been frustrating, but it’s presented us with a chance to bring Craig in.
"We’ve got options up front, despite Jamie Ward’s injury, with Conor Sammon, Chris Martin, Michael Jacobs and Mason Bennett, but we’ve been left a little bit short in midfield so Craig’s arrival certainly strengthens that area."
Forsyth has made two starts and two substitute appearances this season and also made eight outings on loan at Bradford City during the 2012/13 campaign.
He has been used at centre half, left back and left midfield for Watford's first team and reserves and has made 26 appearances for the Hornets since he joined from Dundee in the summer of 2012.
