Nigel Pearson has had a rough start to life as Derby manager, seeing his side pick up one win in the league, scoring just a single goal in the process.
Their campaign kicked off with a hard fought point at home to Brighton in which neither side showed any real class.
The Rams followed this up with a horrendous performance and a 2-0 loss at Barnsley, before beating Preston and drawing with Aston Villa.
Since then, Derby have lost their last three games, to Burton Albion, and more recently Newcastle and Ipswich.
However, on Tuesday night’s game under the lights at the iPro Stadium, Derby were arguably the better side and controlled the game, only a goalkeeping error meant they lost the tie.
After an improved performance, but not an improved result, the Derby players will be looking to get their season going at the weekend away to Bristol City.
