The Rams beat Howe's Cherries 1-0 at Dean Court on Saturday to move within a point of the Championship play-off places. Jamie Ward scored the only goal of the game in the 61st minute. "Derby are the best team we've played this season," said Howe. "They kept the ball very well, which made it difficult for us to get a foothold in the game and try to dominate possession as we like to do. "They starved us of the ball, really, and it became difficult for us to get some concerted pressure in the game. "Ultimately, we didn't work their goalkeeper enough." Howe, who led Bournemouth to promotion from League One last season, added: "I don't like losing. It's certainly not something we're used to. "When you're not winning on a consistent basis, you know you need to do better and we're certainly working towards that. "We know the areas we need to improve but we've had a big step up in level - and I think there's no bigger example than this game and the quality of the team we were playing." http://www.derbytelegraph.co.uk/Derby-County-best-ve-faced-season-says/story-20168058-detail/story.html#ixzz2lYwcczeV Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
