Derby County’s start to the season hasn’t exactly gone how they would have imagined it.
After losing the playoff final last term, the Rams will have had their eyes on another promotion push this time round, but they have often looked a shadow of the team that dramatically knocked Leeds out of the playoffs last campaign.

The East Midlands club have won just two of their opening ten games, and they sit in the bottom half of the Championship table.
Fortunately, it seems as if their players have the right attitude to turn things around, as Curtis Davies sent out a rallying cry on Twitter after their draw with Barnsley.
Sickening that we didn’t take all three points tonight! Set-pieces costingn is again! That being said we had more than enough chances (including myself) to extend our lead and see the game off. Got to finish the week strongly and go into the break with a win #DCFC #DCFCFans ? pic.twitter.com/KxeV8IGvCC

Davies’ message was loud and clear – Derby need to stop dropping points in games they should be winning.
It’s hard to disagree with the centre-back’s view that Derby should have beaten Barnsley on Wednesday evening.
The Tykes had lost their last three games before they met Phillip Cocu’s side, and if it weren’t for a late equaliser, Derby would have taken all three points, so you can understand why Davies calls it ‘sickening’.
