More Needed Going Forward

More Needed Going Forward

Derby County have looked solid at the back in pre-season but need to strengthen up front according to Vital Derby readers.

Andre Wisdom an Curtis Davies have been brougt in to strengthen the backline along with Tom Huddlestone to anchor the midfield and prior to Saturday's clash with Hoffenheim had only conceded one goal in pre-season. Going forward has been another matter though and the loss of Will Hughes and Tom Ince has seen a missing spark from some of Derby's performances.

According to the poll of Vital Derby readers The Rams definitely need to add to their options going forward with a massive 86% saying that attacking midfield or striker was the area that needed strengthening. Changes may not be made before the season opener on Friday but Gary Rowett says Derby will continue to work hard to bring the right players to the club.

The full results were as follows:

Attacking midfield - 45%
Forward - 41%
Goalkeeper - 6%
Full-back - 4%
Central midfield - 4%
Central defender - 0%
