Derby County West Stand

Derby County prospect Mason Bennett was stretchered off in an under-21 game with West Brom.

Derby County beat West Brom 1-0 in an under-21 game on Thursday, but it was at a cost.

Exciting prospect Mason Bennett was taken off the field on a stretcher, to the concern of his teammates and opponents.

Bennett became Derby's youngest ever player in 2011, and has recently been on loan at Bradford City, with competition for a first team place increased.

An England under-19 international, he took to Twitter after the game to update fans as to his condition.

The good news clearly is there are no broken bones, but he is not out of the woods yet. Derby County could release an update on his condition via their website late this afternoon.

West Brom under-21 coach James Shan also took to Twitter to wish Bennett well.
