Derby chief Tom Glick backs manager Nigel Clough

Derby County chief executive Tom Glick has defended manager Nigel Clough following Saturday's 4-1 home mauling at the hands of struggling Scunthorpe.

The Rams are just five points off the Championship relegation zone and were booed off the pitch.

But Glick told BBC Sport that there is no danger of a short-term approach from the Pride Park hierarchy.

"A year ago we were convinced we made the right decision [appointing Clough] and we're still convinced," Glick said.

"We are building something that will be consistently successful at a high level over an extended period of time and while we are in a rough patch right now we are not in a rush to build something as quickly as possible.

"We are incredibly disappointed with our last three home results but we are not going to let that cloud our judgements or our convictions."
