A night of mixed emotions for Derby boss Nigel Clough

A night of mixed emotions for Derby boss Nigel Clough

The Rams, with eight players in their squad under the age of 21, battled back after Richard Keogh's own goal with Jamie Ward nodding in his 10th goal of the season nine minutes from time to secure the draw.

Clough said: "It was a good point in the end when you're 1-0 down, but overall I think we deserved three. We created enough chances and restricted Bolton to very few opportunities.

"It makes it a little worse to concede an own goal. He just got a little unlucky with it by getting the slightest touch on it - and the timing just before half-time didn't help us either.

"But we showed great character to come back and get a point, I'm absolutely delighted with the lads. We had several chances in the second half and when they don't go in you start to think it's not going to be your night, but then up popped Jamie with a great header at the far post.

"It was a good goal, very difficult to control it when the cross is coming skidding in off the greasy surface like that. It was a very good finish indeed and no more than we deserved. We are sitting here with three points from out last four matches but we could quite easily have nine or 10."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
