Derby County 2 Charlton Athletic 0

I managed to listen to the first 20 minutes and we were being taken to the cleaners. It obviously got better, or less worse, depending on your opinion, but Derby had already hung up their 3 points by then. There were a couple of Charlton chances, but Derby didn’t have to move out of neutral in the 2nd half. After the tremendous first game in August these two teams have gone in opposite directions.

The good thing was that in the very congested middle to bottom places, the results went well for us. We slipped two more places from Friday night, but we remain 8 points clear of Millwall in the 3rd from bottom place.

I found it strange that Luzon picked Wilson for the centre of midfield. Not sure is Lawrie has ever played there. He lasted 45 minutes before being hooked. I hope he gets another opportunity in one of his regular positions.

I have to ask why Lepoint didn’t get to play at any point. Another hard to explain signing and it is looking like Luzon does not fancy him. Careful Guy others had been fired for less.

Alou Diarra came on for the 2nd half and sounded busy and I would expect him to start on Saturday.

Nothing won, nothing lost.

    I hope that this is not a case of normal service having resumed. While I was grateful for the much needed wins against Brentford and Wigan, both those sides were very poor. Derby are obviously a classier act this season and I would expect us not to take anything from that game. Saturday is the real test for me. Huddersfield are roughly the same as us in terms of ability and will be a better barometer of where we are under Luzon.

  2. I omitted to mention that Darren Bent came over to the travelling Addicks at the end of the game to give them a round of applause last night. Class.
