‘One man mission’ – Many Derby County fans react to 27-year-old contribution to Blackburn defeat



A number of Derby County supporters have been bemoaning the performance of defender Andre Wisdom following the Rams’ frustrating 2-1 defeat away at Blackburn Rovers on Friday.

The Rams headed into the game under pressure to pick up all three points to give themselves some breathing room above the bottom three. However, despite taking the lead after a promising start to the game, Wayne Rooney’s side were ultimately guilty of making a couple of major mistakes at the back that allowed Blackburn to turn the game around and inflict a damaging defeat on them.

One player who endured a torrid evening for the Rams was Wisdom, with the 27-year-old involved in both goals that the Rams conceded. His mistake for the second goal proved to be really costly for Rooney’s side. It was a performance that demonstrated that Derby can be vulnerable defensively when he starts at the centre of their defence.

Are these 17 facts about Derby County’s club badge true or false?

Wisdom did manage to make three clearances and one interception, but he also failed to win a single aerial duel and was sloppy at times in possession giving away the ball on 13 occasions and maintaining a passing accuracy of 74% (Sofascore). Derby needed a much stronger performance from one of their two centre-backs if they were going to be able to secure a vital win.

Many Derby fans were quick to bemoan the level of performance that Wisdom was able to produce and some were questioning whether he should keep his place in the side.
