Newcastle v Derby

Newcastle 0-0 Derby

Newcastle came up against a resolute Derby as they fell short of victory for the first time in six home games to see their league lead cut to six points.

Earlier wins for Nottingham Forest and West Brom put pressure on the Magpies, but Derby proved dogged in defence.

Ryan Taylor's free-kick hit the bar and Kevin Nolan fluffed a one-on-one, while Rams keeper Steven Bywater denied Nile Ranger brilliantly on 88 minutes.

A second booking meant Jay McEveley saw red late on, but Derby held on to draw.

And they will definitely be happy with that as a combination of Bywater and the woodwork rewarded their defensive endeavour.

Both came to Derby's rescue when Ranger hooked a volley goalwards with two minutes remaining, Bywater somehow parrying the shot onto the underside of the bar and away.

Plenty of other chances went astray for Newcastle.

Carroll headed a 15th-minute Jose Enrique cross wide and Peter Lovenkrands volleyed across the face of goal seconds later, before Bywater stood tall to deny Taylor after he had been put through by Jonas Gutierrez.

That came after Taylor had hit the bar, and before half time Nolan dallied too long in front of goal to allow the Rams defence to get back and clear.

Steven Taylor missed another fine chance before the hour mark when he headed Andy Carroll's cross straight at Bywater, but the earlier chances paled into insignificance compared to Ranger's later effort.

Not that Steve Harper was totally unworked, the home keeper producing a fine save to deny DJ Campbell from close range in the first half, while Miles Addison produced a fine performance on his return from injury.

As it was, the match ended all square, a result that sees Derby edge five points clear of the relegation zone.


Newcastle manager Chris Hughton:
"It's probably testament to where we are at this moment that we have a very disappointed and frustrated changing room in there.

"But the reality is the performance was a good performance that on most occasions will win us the game.

"It's another clean sheet and, of course, it's a game we haven't lost at St James', so there are a lot of positives and certainly more positives at the moment than there are negatives."

Derby boss Nigel Clough on Rams skipper Robbie Savage:

"For some reason - I don't understand it - he gets booed at every single ground we come to. I have never quite figured that out.

"I can understand that at ex-clubs - and he's had a few of them - but I can't understand sometimes this reputation that goes before him.

"I don't quite get it because I think football supporters should recognise sometimes what an honest and whole-hearted player he is."
