Referee:

Derby County and Wolverhampton Wanderers played out a 0-0 at Pride Park in a game of few chances but Nigel Clough will have been pleased with a clean sheet after having to name a very young side due to injuries and suspensions. Adam Legzdins made a good save from Jamie O`Hara and Will Hughes and Jamie Ward both went close with efforts from range in an evenly contested firsthalf. Michael Jacobs came on with a little under half-an-hour to go and his cross saw Conor Sammon glance a header into the side netting before Ward`s low freekick from the edge of the area in added time brought a reaction save from Carl Ikeme in the Wolves goal as the sides had to settle for a point apiece.

Michael Hoganson came into the side at leftback in place of the suspended Gareth Roberts to give the Derby side a very young look with no players over the age of twenty-six in the starting line-up. Wolves started the game strongly with Karl Henry volleying over in the opening minutes and Jamie O`Hara forcing a full length save out of Adam Legzdins with a half-volley from the edge of the area. Will Hughes and Jamie Ward were both off target from range as The Rams got themselves on the front foot but chances were scarce with Kieron Freeman`s pull back to Ward the only real moment of note before halftime but the former Sheffield United striker`s effort was blocked before it could threaten Carl Ikeme in the Wolves goal.

Wolves opened the second half brightly and Bakary Sako brought a reflex save from Legzdins with an effort from outside of the area and O`Hara hit another effort wide when the ball fell to him. Michael Jacobs was brought on in place of Hughes who was feeling a groin injury just after the hour mark and he was involved straight away when he combined with Conor Sammon before Paul Coutts` low effort from the edge of the area was well held by Ikeme. Jacobs then clipped a cross in from the right which Sammon was first to but his glancing header could only find the side netting and The Rams had one last chance to win the game when they were awarded a freekick within the D on the edge of the area in added on time. Ward stepped up and fired in a low effort but Ikeme was equal to it and held the shot as the game finished goalless.
