Derby County fans will have been left disappointed as their side fell to a 2-1 defeat at home to Lee Johnson’s Bristol City.
The Rams didn’t take the chances that fell their way on the night, which saw them miss out on a chance to move back into the play-offs.
It means they now sit 11th in the Championship table, and could slip further down if other results don’t go their way on Wednesday evening.
Bristol City took the lead on the day through Andreas Weimann, which was soon doubled as Josh Brownhill scored in first-half injury-time for the Robins.
But Derby responded in the second-half, with substitute, Jack Marriott halving the deficit with a fine individual strike to beat Daniel Bentley.
Marriott will be hoping that his impressive showing can earn him his first league start of the season for when Derby are next in league action.
Plenty of Derby fans issued high-praise for Marriott after his goal.

Bielik looked decent tonight. Maybe 3 at the back could work? Shame Bogle injured as he’d be perfect in that system. Marriott needs to get fully fit and stay in the team. Excellent finish. #dcfc 🐑

Marriott did not look at the goal once from receiving the ball with his back to goal, turning and smashing it in to the net. Natural goal scorer. #dcfc

It’s almost as if he’s the best striker in the team and should be given maximum game time

He’s our best player by a mile, hopefully starts starting every game now

Gifted them two goals and struggled to break them down. Marriott was the best player for us and he played for 20 minutes, says a lot.
