Clough Rues Rams Luck

Nigel Clough rued his sides luck after they slipped to a fourth straight defeat against West Ham United in front of the Skysports cameras on Saturday evening. With a number of players returning from long-term injury and Tamas Priskin making his first start after joining on loan it was a different looking lineup for The Rams but the recent poor run of results continued. Priskin scored with a neat finish to give Derby the lead but The Hammers equalised just before the break and won the game in the second half with goals from Kevin Nolan and Mark Noble.

Clough bemoaned the equaliser on the stroke of halftime that changed the game and the decision that lead to the freekick in the buildup to the goal when Ben Davies was harshly adjudged to have fouled Freddie Picquionne. Talking to dcfc.co.uk about the game Clough said:

'Things didn't really go our way. We started pretty well and got a brilliant goal through Tamas Priskin. If we had got to half time a goal in front I think it would have been a totally different game."

'Carlton Cole's goal gave them a lift just before the break and it allowed West Ham to come out in the second half and put us under pressure. We felt a bit hard done by with the free-kick that resulted in the equalising and it's little things like that which aren't going our way at the moment."
