Nigel Clough: Was unhappy with the officials after defeat to Blackburn

The Rams were undone by an early Jordan Rhodes penalty before Scott Dann headed a second deep into first-half injury time, which Clough felt went on for too long.

He said afterwards: "We conceded the killer second in disputed added time I have to say. He put a minute up and it was two minutes 25 seconds when they added the second which we just wondered what happened. We didn't see a stoppage.

"We certainly paid for our failures in both penalty areas. We spent the last couple of days chatting about keeping Blackburn quiet. To give the penalty away how we did was amateurish. It gave Blackburn a big lift and then we create three as good a chances as you'll get away from home."

Clough also bemoaned the referee's failure to award a penalty when Morten Gamst Pedersen appeared to bring down Ben Davies, adding: "Even if the penalty had have been given on Ben Davies, which was pretty blatant, then you never know. It would have created a nervy situation for Blackburn."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
