Nigel Clough: A baffling afternoon for the Derby boss

Nigel Clough: A baffling afternoon for the Derby boss

Ludovic Sylvestre's stoppage-time winner was the difference between the two

sides after the hosts had missed a penalty and seen Gary Taylor-Fletcher's opener equalised by Ben Davies.

Derby are safe for another year but with only four league wins on the road, it was a frustrating afternoon for the Rams and Clough was adamant his side deserved a point.

"There was nothing in the game, I thought we edged it second half and we were going to go on and win the game but we end up losing instead of getting a guaranteed point," he said.

"We thought our performance warranted at least a point today. We just vacated the edge of the box in the last few minutes, which we are disappointed with.

"Out of the three centre-halves we had in the area, one of them should have been in the area where the ball was struck. But it's a brilliant strike.

"We feared the worst with the decision that was made with the penalty because it was then continued for the next 60-odd minutes. The players are very angry at losing because we hate it, but also they are very angry and upset at the officials' performance - all three of them.

"You start to doubt a little bit with some of the decisions that were made."

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
