Manager Nigel Clough frustrated after Derby County let lead slip at Birmingham City
MANAGER Nigel Clough was frustrated by Derby County's inability to build on their first-half lead against Birmingham City.
The Rams led through Ben Davies' 40th-minute volley but ended up losing the game 3-1 as goals from half-time substitutes Wes Thomas (2) and Nathan Redmond gave Blues victory at St Andrew's.
"We played pretty well at times but didn't get a result," said Clough. "We need to do more to get that second goal.
"When you are on top and leading by a goal, it isn't going to remain like that in Championship games.

"We should have scored more than one goal in the first half, particularly when a team is struggling at home.
"More experienced players would have gone on and killed off the game.
"You couldn't say it was a bad performance. We deserved something out of the game but it was due to our inability to get that vital second goal.
"One goal is rarely good enough to win a game in the Championship.
"The young Birmingham players livened up the game for them in the second half but generally my goalkeeper had little to do and we conceded three goals."
