Clough: Soft Penalty Changed The Game

Clough: Soft Penalty Changed The Game

Nigel Clough was left bemoaning what he felt was a "soft" penalty given against us as Gareth Southgate's final match as Middlesbrough boss ended in victory.

Despite the 2-0 win over us at the Riverside last night Southgate was surprisingly sacked but Clough was left to rue the penalty that Boro were given that came off the back of us being denied two clearer ones at the weekend.

"We conceded a soft penalty having had two turned down on Saturday which we thought were probably more of a shout than that one given tonight."

The Rams boss, given our away form and Boro's recent indifferent home form, knew that the opening goal would prove critical and once they got this he knew it was curtains.

"The first goal was going to be very important, primarily for us having not got a win away from home this season and Middlesbrough on the back of three defeats.

Once that one went in, it changed the game."

Clough was talking after the Middlesbrough match.
