Derby   0 - 2   Blackpool

Derby v Blackpool

Derby 0-2 Blackpool

Blackpool boosted their Championship play-off hopes with victory at Derby.

Having already hit the bar Brett Ormerod burst through on goal and his shot squirmed into the net off Jake Buxton returning after a summer injury.

Robbie Savage had chances for Derby before Ormerod made the points safe when he broke away and slid the ball under Stephen Bywater.

With five minutes left Dean Moxey then hauled down Ormerod to receive his marching orders for a second yellow.

It was a disappointing return to action for defender Buxton who had been on the sidelines with groin and hernia problems after starting the season's opening six games.

The centre-half looked out of position for Blackpool's first goal and then looked short of pace when Ormerod bagged the late second goal.


Derby boss Nigel Clough:

"We seemed incapable of doing the simple things. We looked very nervous and short of confidence.

"The confidence is very fragile and we looked for short of ideas. At times we couldn't pass to a white shirt."

"We relied on our wide players to create things and I don't think they put in one useful cross. The back four also struggled."

Blackpool boss Ian Holloway:
"Brett was a shining example to all young footballers. I'm just glad he got the goal he deserved.

"His movement and running off the ball was tremendous and he caused them all sorts of problems.

"I thought we thoroughly deserved the win. I believe we will improve and it looked like the players were enjoying the win and believing in themselves."
