Rowett Pleased With Cardiff Display

Derby County held league leaders Cardiff City to a goalless draw at the weekend with manager Gary Rowett pleased with his side's display following recent disappointing performances.

The Rams were happy to sit back an defend in the firsthalf to keep their opponents at arms length before looking to catch them on the break in the second period. Craig Forsyth and Tom Huddlestone both came close before David Nugent was denied by the Cardiff keeper in the closing stages.

Talking to about the performance Rowett said:

"From the start we were magnificent, we looked much stronger and much more physical in the way that we dealt with Cardiff. We knew they were going to be direct and put a lot of set pieces into our box but we dealt with them really manfully, and I`m really pleased with the clean sheet. We got into some areas when we then needed to make the next pass forwards into space, because we dragged them out and when we did that we got into some really good positions."
