‘Another titanic performance’ – Many Derby County fans react to player’s display v West Brom

Published

on

Derby County centre-back Curtis Davies took to Twitter yesterday evening to express his delight at keeping another clean sheet as his side secured a 1-0 victory over promotion candidates West Bromwich Albion.

Colin Kazim-Richards’ ability to capitalise on Cedric Kipre and Sam Johnstone’s mistake in the 58th minute was the difference between the two sides on the afternoon, but the Rams were forced to defend for periods of the game as they looked to protect their lead.

This is something the likes of Davies, Nathan Byrne and Richard Stearman were able to do, with the latter heavily praised for his contribution as he stepped in admirably for Phil Jagielka and put in a vital block to stop Jake Livermore from getting himself on the scoresheet at Pride Park.

His partner in central defence Davies has received praise for his leadership and performances not just yesterday, but throughout the 2021/22 campaign after committing his future to the Rams in the summer.

He has played a big part in helping the East Midlands side to establish themselves as the joint-fourth defence in the league this season as things stand, only being beaten by AFC Bournemouth, Fulham and yesterday’s opponents.

Seeing his side concede just 21 goals in 23 league matches during the 2021/22 campaign, the 36-year-old will be hoping to maintain a similar record in the second half of the season after stepping in well for Tom Lawrence as Wayne Rooney’s side’s skipper.

What did Derby fans say about his performance though? A clear verdict emerged when the central defender took to Twitter to celebrate the three points.
