Derby have reinstated first-team coach Billy McEwan following his sacking by currently suspended manager John Gregory.
McEwan is delighted to be back
McEwan won his
job back on appeal, the club ruling his dismissal `unmerited'.
McEwan said: "After the appeal was upheld my solicitor said I could either
come back or take a settlement and look for another job.
"But I was delighted to
come back and help the boys.
"I did not have to come back, I have to say that, but I was wanted, that's
the most important thing.
I was wanted by people at this football club and
that's a big thing."
Meanwhile, interim-manager George Burley has a brief to save Derby from relegation.
Burley, appointed on Monday for an initial two-week period
after Gregory was suspended, has been called in to halt the Rams' slide
down the table which sees them just six points clear of the First Division drop
"My job is to make sure we don't get sucked towards the bottom," said
"When you look at the squad there are some really great players here, but for
whatever reason they've not done it this year.
"The next few games are very important for Derby and Norwich on Saturday is a
difficult game, but the players are determined to get the right result."
