What Clough Made Of The Easter Matches

It was a mixed Easter weekend for Derby, a win on Saturday looked to have left us all but safe yet a defeat on Easter Monday, and other results going against us, sees us back in the mix.

A 1-0 win at Coventry, and we've not won many way matches this season have we, thanks to another goal from Shaun Barker kicked off things nicely and left Nigel Clough content and knowing we were inching towards assured safety.

"We deserved it today. The clean sheets and the resilience we are showing gives us a platform to work on.

Every effort we have got goes into Monday, if we can get that three points then we should be safe."

Clough was talking to BBC Radio Derby after the Coventry match.

Easter Monday saw Ipswich virtually secure their own Championship status as we missed a chance of our own with a first defeat in five, in a match that saw Clough see red following Stephen Pearson's own dismissal.

"The referee asked me to repeat something. I did and I asked was he sending me off for that, and he wouldn't answer.

I think it was for something he [Pearson] said as well as he was walking away but I don't think it was aimed at the referee.

But we have missed a good opportunity to get another point or three on the board."

Clough was talking after Ipswich match.

Defeat yesterday leaves us six points off the drop zone with four matches to play. This should be enough, but leaves us still glancing nervously over our shoulders!
