One of the major reasons Derby fell away in January was the goals drying up.
They were over relying on striker Chris Martin and when he hit a dry patch, fellow strikers Andreas Weimann and Darren Bent failed to compensate.
He managed just 14 goals but was injured for 9 games so as a last ditch attempt to fix their goal scoring problem they signed Reading striker Nick Blackman who was in very good form.
He had scored 11 goals already for Reading by January and was spearheading a fading promotion challenge so joined Derby.
He has only played a handful of times and is a major flop, he will be hoping Nigel Pearson uses him a lot more than Darren Wassall did so he can prove himself.
The striker proved at Reading he is a capable Championship striker and he can partner Chris Martin next season to reduce the workload.
