    v Ipswich Town (H) Match Thread

    Waghorn, Mount, Lawrence, Jozefzoon, Wilson all consider themselves set piece specialists and probably claim them themselves. To be quite honest, I don't care who's taking them, I just want them to a) avoid the first defender and b) not fly straight into the goalkeeper's hands. If that happens, it doesn't matter if the ball lands on the head of a striker or a defender, we've got a chance. Equally, it doesn't matter if Waghorn is in the box if the ball never arrives there. We need to sort it out. So far this season, the only set piece that hasn't been abysmal have been Lawrence's absurd Ronaldo FKs. The world is topsy turvy!

    Forsyth was my MOTM today, also. He had one slight hiccup; when he was so frustrated that Lawrence had wasted a superb through ball from him, he decided to provide a through ball to a Millwall attacker. But he recovered well to tackle back and no harm came. Didn't even concede a corner from it. Most of the things we did in that second half went through Fozzy at some stage.

    I thought Bogle was an improvement on Wisdom today - looking at people's lineups am I alone in thinking that? Wouldn't consider dropping him. Won't take him long in the team to build up enough confidence at senior level to start getting to the byline, and then we'll start to see some service from the right wing. We NEED to see an improvement in the quality of set pieces against Ipswich. They were absolutely dire today. Even if every set piece was average, we would have created at least a couple more chances. It was so woeful.

    Defenders in ability to play around the defense aside, there were other worrying signs from the first half. Most notably, for me, was the lack of energy in trying to get to loose balls. Millwall were first to everything, and every Derby player was backing out of 50/50s. Gotta see more energy and commitment than that at the start of games, otherwise this pattern of poor first halves is going to be a trend throughout the season.

    That's unfair - we were the better team from the 46th minute. Why didn't we show up in the first half is a valid question though.

    FT 2-1 Much improved in the second half. One of my biggest gripes in football though at the end. We spent the last 40 seconds of added time passing it around the back ducking 4. We carry on.

    i think we're seeing Derby v a team with the energy to press and then Derby v a team who's run out of energy. That's how its felt against these and Reading. Leeds never ran out of energy.

    Another chance for Nugent, but he doesn't catch his effort. All Derby at the moment.

    Forsyth then plays an excellent headed through ball to a MIllwall striker, but recovers well.

    Forsyth with a superb through ball to Lawrence, who fluffs the shot but a deflection still almost takes it over the MIllwall GK.

    And from that really harsh FK - millwall miss an opportunity from 6 yards. Lucky.

    Johnson clears the ball, Millwall player runs into him. FK to Millwall on the edge of our box. Really harsh. Dangerous position.
