A group of Derby County fans are raising money for a flag to show their support for Andre Wisdom, who is recovering in hospital after being stabbed in an "unprovoked assault and robbery" in a street in Liverpool at the weekend.

The 27-year-old defender is recovering in hospital. He is in a stable condition and is expected to make a full recovery.

He could be released from hospital in two or three days.

It is not clear yet how many of Derby's remaining seven league fixtures Wisdom will miss as the team pushes for a place in the play-offs.

Fans on social media sent their best wishes to Wisdom and a 'Flag for Andre' fundraiser has been set up.

The aim is to have the flag on show for the home game against Nottingham Forest at the weekend.

They are aiming to raise £2,500. Late last night the fund total stood at £1,253.
