Nigel Clough: Took a lot of positives from Derby's performance

Clough felt his charges retained their focus in spite of feeling a sense of injustice when Chris O'Grady gave Barnsley the lead.

But after losing against Blackburn on Saturday, Clough was delighted to take something from the match with the Tykes.

"I thought we thoroughly deserved a point, but it really should have been three after the first-half performance," said Clough.

"Our defence has been absolutely superb tonight and we limited Barnsley to just one or two shots all game.

"But the players are extremely disappointed with their goal because there was a blatant foul in the lead-up to it.

"However, on the back of two defeats, I'm really pleased with the effort of the players.

"We were a little bit lethargic at Blackburn and we gave two very soft goals away. But we didn't do that today. If the foul had've been given I don't think we'd have conceded tonight."

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
