Derby   2 - 0   Portsmouth

Derby 2-0 Portsmouth

Derby 2-0 Portsmouth

Goals by Robbie Savage and Paul Green lifted Derby into fourth place with a fine win against in-form Portsmouth.

The Rams started brightly and opened the scoring with a coolly-taken Robbie Savage penalty after Tomasz Cywka was hauled down by skipper Aaron Mokoena.

Shefki Kuqi, James Bailey and Cywka wasted chances for Derby before Green poked in after linking up with Cywka.

Pompey introduced Kanu late on who almost grabbed a consolation goal but fired wildly over with 10 minutes left.

Derby's third consecutive win in the league and fifth at home was rarely in doubt for Nigel Clough's high-flying side and it was a game they started in dominant fashion.

Keeper Jamie Ashdown pulled off a magnificent save on 11 minutes to keep out a stinging shot by Kris Commons from eight yards but they did not have to wait too long for the crucial opener.

Soon after Dave Kitson went close for the visitors, Polish star Cywka was fouled inside the box by Mokoena with Savage making no mistake from the spot.

After Cywka's strike doubled the lead, more chances followed as Kuqi nodded wide but back came Portsmouth who should have set up a dramatic finish with Kanu blazing over.

The game almost finished in a blaze of glory for Derby as keeper Ashdown had to scramble back brilliantly to save a long-range effort from Commons.
