Derby County manager Nigel Clough hails young Rams' display in FA Youth Cup against Manchester City
NIGEL Clough has described the performance in the FA Youth Cup victory over Manchester City as the best by Derby County's under-18 side in his four years as manager.
Derby won away to Arsenal in last season's competition before they fell to Manchester United. The win against City has booked a quarter-final tie at home to Chelsea.
"The performance was better than the win at Arsenal, so it's got to be up there as the best," said Clough.
"Manchester City had one or two shots in the whole game, which is down to a great defensive and team display by the youngsters.
