Clough: Bristol City Will Escape Drop

Rams manager Nigel Clough admitted that although he felt his side played well but they just didn`t have enough to make it count against City.

The visitors opened the scoring on 20 minutes when Bryson came up with a low finish from 12 yards after Jeff Hendrick's cross from the bye-line set him up nicely.

City were fortunate not to go two down on the half hour when Steve Davies headed home from a Ben Davies free kick only to be ruled offside.

Derby manager Nigel Clough told reporters: 'We have lost two points to a wonder goal. Perhaps we could have made more of our possession, but I was delighted with many aspects of our play.

'The back four looked strong, but you also need your midfield to work hard to protect them and that was the case.

'We made some good runs down the channels and put together some decent moves. Steve Davies has hit a post, but we didn't have enough end product.

'Bristol City are fighting for their lives and kept on scrapping for 90 minutes. With that attitude I think they can stay up, while we are looking to finish the campaign strongly with next season in mind.'
