Our defence was excellent today and gave Derby very few opportunities. Sat in front of them Cole Skuse battled well and you would never have known he was playing with a broken nose. The problem was that their defence was just as solid in spite of the best efforts of Sears, who once again led by example running at defenders and looking for space.
Freddie was given some much needed help when Fraser made his much needed return. With Sears moving up front alongside Murphy, the super-charged Fraser was electric and gave the Derby defence another problem to deal with. But deal with him they did. The promising thing for me was that when both Fraser and Sears were on the pitch I can envisage over 90 minutes that they will prove too much for most teams in this league.
Having two players who are direct with pace and the ability to beat a man will open up spaces for the likes of Murphy and Pitman. Shackell and Keogh did a job on our strikers today and our centre backs will feel aggrieved not have a clean sheet also.
I cannot fault the effort of the team today and at times the tempo was great and equally matched by the crowd who played their part.
