It’s a darned shame but it looks like the wheels are coming off at Derby County at the worst possible time, with Steve McClaren’s much-fancied side slipping from the Championship’s automatic promotion places after a disastrous recent run of results (no wins in their last six).
Indeed, there’s a possibility Derby could end the weekend outside of the play-off places, providing of course that Ipswich manage a 12-0 victory over Watford today.
The Rams’ latest cock-up came at Molineux on Friday evening, with Wolves ambling to a fairly comfortable 2-0 victory.
Nouha Dicko got the first before Derby ‘keeper Lee Grant dropped an absolute clanger to concede the second shortly thereafter – flapping an innocuous loose ball backwards over his own line under barely any pressure whatsoever…
Dear oh dear oh dear oh dear.
