Player Ratings then...
Lee Camp - 8 - made one balls up with a throw, but was right behind every Plymouth shot, making every save look comfortable.
Marc Edworthy - 8 - Another steady game, looks too have found his feet at the club now, looked to work well with Bolder on the right hand side. Giving all the defence 8's, no-one was brilliant at the back, but a comfortable clean sheet, means they did something right.
Alan Wright - 8 - Good pass to set Smith off to cross the ball for Bolder too score after 2 minutes, no better way for a full back too start. Always looked to find a Derby player with the ball, only hoofed it as a last resort, and despite being about 4ft tall and looking like a little school boy, he actually won quite a few headers.
Darren Moore - 8 -The sheer size of the bloke still amazes me (when he's stood next to Wright, it's quite funny) we said for years we need a big dominant centre back, finally we've got one.
Lewin Nyatanga - 8 - His youth and extra bit of pace at the back was important (not that Nick Chadwick has any pace) he'll definately be needed against teams with pace.
Adam Bolder - 8 - Scored the goal of course, a good looping header, he should scoremore goals, regular 1st team place would help of course, the one season he got that he scored 6, looks to be getting it again now, so more goals should come. Noticed him more for good passing rather than tackling this week, for a change.
Inigo Idiakez - 8 - He just pulls the strings, sometimes when he plays you think he's not doing much, but when he's out (usually suspended) you can see the diference, and seems as most teams concentrate mainly on closing him down, it leaves space for others.
Giles Barnes - 8 - Another good display, not got the composure or technique of Huddlestone, but personally I'd rather have Barnes, he puts himself about, and has bags of pace, and doesn't mind running with the ball, we've unearthed another talent...lets hope we don't sell him too bloody Spurs.
Tommy Smith - 7 1/2 - Great cross for the goal, but then never really delivered another good cross, full of running as always though, a bit like Idiakez I think, as in, sometimes you think he doesn't do enough, but take him out the team and it would leave a big gap. Also got there player sent off by skinning him twice, and making him lunge in and take him out.
Paul Peschisolido - 7 - Fairly quiet game, linked up well with Lisbie early on, can't remember him having a chance to score though.
Kevin Lisbie - 7 - Bright early on, a couple of times his touch let him down, and denied him a goal scoring opportunity. Looked more lively than Durkos's mate Danny Graham. A Quiet 2nd half but he's not played too much the last couple of years, definately potential there.
Lee Holmes - 7 - Had a couple of runs at the full back, did what looked like a great turn...though I'm not sure whether he meant it, if he did Ronaldinho would have been proud.
Lionel Ainsworth - Got 3 minutes and didn't touch the ball, so I can hardly give him a rating, But he looked very quick, and should be given more time in the future.

Of course, if we lose, I'll never admit it was me who wrote this.
