JORDAN Brown retains his place on the subs bench for Derby County in their key Championship clash with visitors Brentford at Pride Park this lunchtime (July 12).
The 19-year-old, from the Staffordshire Moorlands, made his Championship debut at West Bromwich Albion, in mid-week, when he came on in the 84th minute to replace Chris Martin.
The former Cheadle Academy student, who joined Stoke City's academy as a schoolboy, after being spotted playing for Cheadle SMU juniors, was snapped up by the Rams after being released by the Potters as a 15-year-old.
Since then Jordan has progressed through Derby's youth ranks and a place in the club's U23's side on his way to being promoted to the Rams first team squad.
Derby need to beat third-placed Brentford today to keep their play-off hopes alive for a chance to win promotion to the Premier League.
