Derby manager Nigel Clough left St Andrews feeling very disappointed on Saturday after watching his side go down 3-1 after taking the lead just before half time.

Derby were presented with a great chance of picking up a rare away win after Ben Davies put them in front five minutes before the break, but the Rams did not manage to build on the advantage.

Clough felt his side could have put a little more effort into getting a decisive second goal and when it didn’t come, Blues substitutes Wes Thomas and Nathan Redmond took full advantage.

Clough said to his club’s official website: ‘We played pretty well at times but didn’t get a result. We need to do more to get that second goal.

‘When you are on top and leading by a goal it isn’t going to remain like that in Championship games.

‘We should have scored more than one goal in the first half, particularly when a team is struggling at home. More experienced players would have gone on and killed off the game.
