Derby suspend Nigel Pearson hours before clash at Cardiff after miserable start to the new Championship season
Nigel Pearson has been suspended as Derby County manager just hours before his side's Championship clash at Cardiff.
The former Leicester boss, who was only appointed to the Rams' top job in May, has struggled so far at the iPro Stadium.
And those troubles appear to have come to a head with the club confirming that assistant manager Chris Powell will be in charge for the game against the Bluebirds.
