Derby Evening Telegraph - Goals either side of half-time proved so crucial, says Clough
Monday, October 26, 2009,
- DERBY County manager Nigel Clough pointed to goals conceded either side of half-time as crucial moments in their home defeat by Queens Park Rangers.
Paul Putzov and Robbie Savage put the Rams 2-0 up after 36 minutes but they could not hold out to the interval.
Adel Taarabt reduced the deficit five minutes before the break from a free kick and skipper Gavin Mahon equalised in the second minute of the second half before Rangers went on to win 4-2.
"Having gone 2-0 up, whether we deserved to or not, we did not look after the lead well enough," said Clough.
"There were two crucial moments.
"First, conceding before half-time and, secondly, conceding again in the 47th-minute.
"You want to get in at half-time at 2-0 and then it gives you a fighting chance. Then you look to keep it tight for 10 minutes second half and see what happens from there.
"But we couldn't do either of those things.
"We are disappointed with the way we conceded the goals. On the free kick, first of all we shouldn't be giving away free kicks in that position and then the ball should not go round the wall at the height it did and find the net.
"But we were more disappointed with the second goal.
"Dean Moxey has been done at the far post but then we are looking for the two centre-halves to react and they were sleeping."
Jay Simpson struck to give Rangers the lead and then Akos Buzsaky drove in a late penalty after a linesman judged that Moxey had brought down Wayne Routledge.
"We actually thought the third one was a foul on the edge of the box, whether it was is probably academic but a little break there and maybe we could have hung on at 2-2," said Clough.
"If you look at the two penalties we have conceded in the last two games and the two we had turned down at Leicester, little things like that have gone against us.
"The referee did not give the penalty and the linesman, from possibly a worse angle, did. If he wants to get involved that much, he should flag for a foul on the third goal.
"But I thought QPR played extremely well.
"You saw a side full of confidence. They have scored four goals in each of their last three matches and everybody wanted the ball. I thought that was the major difference between the two teams.
"We gave the ball away too much first half. The full-backs gave it away and didn't get us going, and the ball was not being held well enough up front

Derby Evening Telegraph - Rams boss Clough says: We feel the fans' pain
Monday, October 26, 2009
NIGEL Clough said Derby County's bitterly disappointing home defeat by Queens Park Rangers has left everybody hurting.
Derby squandered a 2-0 lead to crash 4-2 in front of a 30,000-plus crowd at Pride Park Stadium and live on national television.
The defeat was the Rams' seventh in the last 10 matches and has left them in 19th place with only 14 points from 14 games played.
Disgruntled fans threw the free T-shirts handed out before the game on to the pitch and booed the players at the final whistle.
"I thought the crowd was very good considering we had just conceded four goals at home," said Clough.
"If they are frustrated, we share their frustration.
"We sympathise with them because we are all feeling the same.
"It is just hard times at the moment and we are all hurting very much.
"If you lose football matches, and especially at home, it hurts. We feel it, the players feel it, the supporters feel it – so we all hurt together.
"We just hope when we get a few players back fit it will turnaround and we will all be going home from games in much happier circumstances than we did at the weekend."
The Rams manager spent an hour after the Rangers game in the Pedigree Suite at Pride Park signing autographs and chatting to those fans who made the long trip to Cardiff on a Tuesday night last month only to see Derby crushed 6-1.
Their response to the manager was described as positive and very supportive.
Clough admitted losing to Rangers in the manner they did left him and his coaching staff feeling as low as they have felt all season.
"I think it is the lowest we have felt since the end of last season when we needed those last three points to get over the line and failed to get them in one or two games," said Clough.
"It is certainly as low as we have been this season and the only way to lift things is to get a good result."
