Derby County are without a win in four games after a controversial late penalty from Kenneth Zohore saw West Brom leave Pride Park with a point this afternoon.
The decision to award Albion the spot-kick appeared the wrong call on the replay, although the Rams had a penalty in their favour that was incorrect in the first-half – which Martyn Waghorn missed.
Overall, Phillip Cocu’s side didn’t do enough to see out the game and midfielder Kieran Dowell came in for particular criticism from the fans after the game.
The on-loan Everton man hasn’t enjoyed the best of starts since signing for Derby in the summer and he struggled to get involved in the game today. He was wasteful at times in possession and couldn’t help the hosts keep the ball when they needed to, whilst his delivery from set-pieces was nowhere near good enough.
As mentioned, it’s not the first time the supporters have been critical of him since he signed and many feel he should be dropped moving forward.
Here we look at some of the reaction to his display on Twitter…
Dowell has been shocking this game. #dcfc

Dowell is too lazy to be an average player. Waghorn not good enough, costs us points again. #dcfc
