Teams: Derby County, Burton Albion
Really enjoyed the game, rode our luck a bit, but got the reward for a positive display.
Though Christie has superb, been critical of him at times, but yesterday he did everything right.
Carson pulled of good saves when called upon.
Keogh and Pearce look a good partnership at the back, Pearce is everything you want from a centre half. Olsson was solid enough to round if a good showing from the back 5.
Hanson did a good job coming in as DM, a bit over zealous at times but did well. It also has to be mentioned his forward thinking passing is superb. I hope we see more of him this season.
Butterfield and Johnson were solid in the middle, passed, tackled kept the shape well, both had opportunities to score. Butterfield with a brilliant run beating 3 players in a tight space on the edge of the box. Got the shot of, well saved by the keeper.
On the wings, Ince was very good first half, even my mate who is the ultimate Ince hater as it seems were the people around us has to admit he was playing well, ran out of steam a bit second half though. Russell was industrious as ever.
Groaned when I heard on the radio that Bent was started, but he led the line well, good chance when he headed over after Christie won the ball and sprang a counter attack, held the ball up better than is seen him do previous.
Vydra looked lively when he came on, glancing header from a corner well saved.
Wednesday had a lot if possesion but a lot of it was sideways and backwards, thought we ran out fairly comfortable winners.
