Striker Conor Sammon felt Derby County were in control before Birmingham fightback
STRIKER Conor Sammon felt Derby County were in control of their Championship match with Birmingham City before slipping to a 3-1 defeat at St Andrew's.
Ben Davies struck in the 40th minute to give the Rams a deserved lead.
However, second-half goals from substitutes Wes Thomas (2) and Nathan Redmond turned the game in Birmingham's favour.
“We were a goal up at half-time away from home, which in this League, is a very good position to be in," said Sammon.

“It is frustrating because I thought we had some excellent opportunities in the first-half - some great openings in the final third which we didn’t make the most of and, ultimately, that has cost us.
“Chris (Martin) had a brilliant effort from the edge of the box blocked and another superbly saved, while Ben (Davies) had a couple of chances closed down too.
“At 1-0, when we were well in the game and controlling it, you always know that the opposition have a chance and that has been the case.
“We just need to regroup again, get back on the training ground on Monday and look forward to the next game."
