‘Could have massively changed the game’ – Plenty of Derby County fans react to flashpoint in Bristol City defeat

Plenty of Derby County fans have made their feelings known after not being awarded a penalty during the defeat to Bristol City on Wednesday morning.

Phillip Cocu’s side have been in superb form since the turn of the year, and they have moved themselves within touching distance of a play off place.

However, Wednesday saw them travel to Ashton Gate to face a Bristol City side looking to keep their play-off hopes alive and they proved difficult opposition for the Rams.

Nahki Wells’ form this season has been excellent and the former Queens Park Rangers loanee – opened the scoring just before the half-hour mark.

Filip Benkovic arrived from Leicester City in the January transfer window on a loan deal, and it was the central defender who added a second for the home side just before half time.

Things then went from bad to worse for Cocu’s side, who allowed Famara Diedhiou space and the striker made it 3-0 to the hosts.

A late attempt at a comeback saw Martyn Waghorn and Chris Martin both net – but Bristol would halt anything more as they held on to secure an all-important three points in their quest for Premier League football.
