Derby County 0 Millwall 0, Championship League Game 11, 4/10/14, att:27,749

Last six W L D L L D

We matched Derby County throughout this game apart from falling on the floor. This was a good solid display by the Lions and considering the changes made which included , Adein O'Brien, Bryon Webster, Richard Chaplow, and Mathew Briggs making his full league debut we frustrated a Derby side who have been tipped for promotion. Lee Gregory is looking sharper and he's relishing playing. He looks like a player that needs regular starts and he is certainly adjusting to this division and although he didn't score in this game he looks like he will if he's given the chance. He should have had a penalty in this game as he was blatantly pushed in the box.

""FIRST ELEVEN'' have we got one? Has Ian Holloway found the solution to mend our "problem" which has been reported as "our soft underbelly

With the changes within our team and re-positioning of some of the players we held our own against Derby and played a lot tighter than we did against Birmingham. As I mentioned earlier Bryon Webster started and played a blinder and it must have made up for the disappointment of being subbed early against Reading.
