Clough Backs Tyson To Shine

Nigel Clough has backed new signing Nathan Tyson to make a big impact at Pride Park after making a controversial summer move from Nottingham Forest on a free transfer. Following in the footsteps of Kris Commons, who made the same journey in the summer of 2008, all involved know the pressure will be on the striker to prove himself especially after the infamous flag waving incident at the end of The Rams 3-2 defeat at The City Ground in 2009.

Clough acted quickly to secure Tyson`s signature when it became clear he would not be extending his stay by the River Trent and thinks he will bring some much needed pace to the side. Having filled a number of positions during this time at Forest Clough sees him as a main striker and is looking for him to play through the middle as the new season approaches with the first game at Burton Albion this afternoon. Talking to the official website Clough said he knew that the player may have something more to prove to the fans than other summer additions but back him all the way saying:

'I suppose coming from up the road and the incident at the City Ground, he does have to work that bit harder to win people over, but once he does that, he has the potential to become an even bigger hero than if he signed from another club. Nathan was more aware than anyone else of the problems a move here may cause, but he's big enough to take that on the chin.'

'He is a player who has always caused us problems; I think if you look back to the last few meetings with Forest, he has always been a thorn in our side. He wants that central striking role after playing out wide for a few years at Forest, so that's where he will start.'
