I needed that after the disappointment of Shef Weds getting 6 points back. Great result.

The team worked very hard together to close down opportunities for Derby when they were out of possession. Think there is still improvement to come with any number of players which can only be a good thing.

Dickie had a great game and thought Dieng's handling, save from Rooney and general presence gave great confidence to the team in front of him.

Thought Ilias Chair worked very hard for the team tonight and although not everything came off for him, he was involved positively both with and without the ball.

Mentions too for the likes of Todd Kane, Geoff Cameron and Yoann Barbet who usually are sometimes on the receiving end when we lose - thought they all made key contributions in this performance.

Warbs? Good use of squad and subs today - watched him switch his attacking midfielders around tonight- even moved Bonne out wide at times to change the dynamics of the game, when Derby were getting more possession second half. Think he talks alot of sense and actually from a coaching point of view, you can see what he is saying.

Good result ..... Dickie owed us a good performance after Barnsley and paid up as my motm, Dieng looks the real deal....

No frauds on the pitch or sitting in the dugout last night
2020/2021.... Keep Calm, no matter the season, we'll follow our team.....

Hamalainen was also very impressive last night, particularly given how few games he's started for us. We now seem to have options in both FB positions.

Winning live on Sky and keeping a clean sheet doesn't get better than that.

All round great performance.

Dickie was outstanding and deserved MOTM. Can't believe they wanted a foul during the build up!

Hamalainen was indeed very good, his composure in tight areas impressed me last night, didn't know what we were getting when he came on for the injured Wallace but have been pleasantly surprised. Confident in control and passing.

Think Kane & Dieng need a mention, Kane had tons of energy and looked lively getting forward. Dieng made a great save to deny Rooney and claims the ball from set pieces with ease.

Lastly Chair pressed really well, Adomah getting batter each game and Ball looks set for a start surely, he turns on the ball well and demonstrated a willingness to drive at the defence.

All very positive.

Alot of comments about Rob Dickie's tackle and cross, understandably but anyone notice Chair's solid tackle on the left hand side started the break up of the phase of play which led to Derby having to move the ball out to where Dickie pressed.

Fantastic result - great to see us win two games in a row; an all too rare occurrence over the last five years. Let's make it three on Saturday.

I think Willock looked particularly threatening when he came on. Alright he's a been green, but he showed a lot of promise.

Willock's cameos from the bench have been encouraging. If he gets a start on Saturday due to BOS's groin injury last night, I'll be interested to see how he plays.

There is a great camera angle from behind that shows that if any free kick was to be given it should be for us. Dicky took the ball whilst their player kicked him and then leaps in to the air before falling, writhing to the floor. :D

I think it was the same player who dived in the area looking for a penalty. He should have got a card for that.

Their Polish winger Jowiak - seemed a bit partial to making the most of contact ...

I am totally obsessed, I have nothing better to do with my time during lockdown.
It's not the despair that will kill you, it's the hope.
