Does it get any better than coming from two goals down to beat your fiercest rivals 3-2 in the FA Cup? I don't think it does! Robbie Savage puts Wednesday's win over Forest down to new found confidence gained from new boss Nigel Clough.
'It shows under Nigel we have our spirit back and we played with belief. It was a bad start - we didn't get going and they came out of the traps better than us.
'But when we went 2-0 down we started passing the ball and creating chances and over the two games we thoroughly deserved the victory.
'At 2-0 down under the previous manager I think we would have capitulated.
'But this manager just brings something you can't put your finger on - he's like Martin O'Neill, he's a very positive man and it breeds into the players.
'He's got a good staff with him, it's a good team. They make us play - even at 2-0 down and it's great to play in.
'We showed a bit of spunk. The fans have seen a performance from us that will give them hope.'
Savage was talking to BBC Radio Derby.
The transformation with the 34-year-old as much as anything else has been amazing. The former Welsh International was totally written off by former boss Paul Jewell, along with many others, but Savage has come back into the side under Clough and is showing what an asset he could be to the club, proving a lot of people wrong.
I can't let this moment pass without giving a special mention of thanks to some of our friends from Vital Forest who have done nothing but come into the forum on here and gloat, boast and write us off (I know it might not be very active but that's the way it goes), who, as I said could very well end up being the case, is laughing now!
