Not the result we were hoping for, but no faulting the players for the performance.

That was the message that Blues head coach Pep Clotet wanted to get across after the defeat to Derby County. Speaking to after the game, Clotet said that he was pleased with the effort the Blues put in and thought that the hosts were somewhat fortunate in managing to get on the scoreboard twice:

“I saw a side that never gave up today, we went for it. We created a lot of chances, some of them clear, unfortunately, we didn’t score more and I think they were fortunate on two goals. The important thing in football is to deserve things. Today we deserved more than we got. That is what we need to do as a team – try to deserve everything. I think today we played like a big team away from home.”

The boss’s words fell on a lot of deaf ears though, as there were a number of fans who didn’t exactly seem too enthused by his words. In fact, there were a number of them who were calling for the ultimate decision to be made. Which seems a bit harsh considering how well Blues have been doing in recent weeks.
