Clough: Defeat Would Have Been A Travesty

Clough: Defeat Would Have Been A Travesty

Nigel Clough felt that Derby were cheated out of all three points on Saturday following the 2-2 draw at Pride Park against West Brom.

There seemed to be a handball in the build up to West Brom's equaliser, which left Clough disappointed that not one of the officials saw this.

"We were very aggrieved by the manner of their equaliser. We all felt it was handball.

In the dressing room, the players confirmed it was handball. There are four officials out there and surely one should be in a position to see that."

West Brom then went on to take the lead but an injury time goal secured as a point, anything less would have been a "travesty" according to Clough.

"Defeat would have been a travesty."

Clough was talking after the match.
