Derby County: Fans call for Jordon Ibe to start against Nottingham Forest

Derby County: Fans call for Jordon Ibe to start against Nottingham Forest - Derby County News

Many Derby County fans have called on Philip Cocu to include Jordon Ibe in his starting line-up tonight.

The 24-year-old has struggled over the last few seasons to find regular first team football and form, having featured just twice in the Premier League for Bournemouth last term and scored a paltry five goals over the last four campaigns.

Arriving at Pride Park on a two-year contract over the summer, the former Liverpool youngster is yet to make a first team appearance since returning to the Rams and is still working on gaining full fitness.

Despite not featuring for Derby’s first team, the winger – who was once the subject of a £15m transfer and has been hailed by The Guardian‘s Andy Hunter for his pace – was in action for the club’s under-23 side earlier today as they faced Southampton.

Finding the back of the net after just one minute, Ibe’s goal generated a flurry of calls from Derby fans for Cocu to select him for tonight’s grudge match against Nottingham Forest.
