    Middlesbrough 0-3 Derby reports and comments

    Post by RRC on Sat 25 Nov 2017, 4:59 pm

    Derby stuck with the team that beat QPR on Tuesday -
        Carson
        Baird Keogh Davies Forsyth
        Huddlestone Ledley
        Weimann Vydra Lawrence
        Nugent
    subs: Mitchell Wisdom Pearce Olsson Thorne Russell Martin

    Boro, in a 4-3-2-1 formation like Derby, pressed the Rams hard from the whistle
    and their midfielders began control the play. The home side won a succession of
    corners but the Derby defence kept them out. Carson made a brilliant save at close
    quarters from Assombalonga. The Rams' first attack saw Weimann and Lawrence
    combine to feed Vydra who lashed the ball into the roof of the net, giving the
    keeper no chance, on 13 minutes.



    After taking the lead, Derby were much more confident and competed better for
    possession. Boro won more corners but their shots were off target. A fine pass by
    Huddlestone set Lawrence away to run at Christie but his shot was saved. Ledley
    and Huddlestone did well in breaking up Boro's attacks, and Carson commanded
    his area from high balls and corners. The home side were dominant for the last
    20 minutes but their attacks failed through a mix of strong defending, poor shots
    and some luck for Derby. The Rams' few attacks broke down with poor passes.
    HT Middlesbrough 0-1 Derby

    In the first minute of the second half, Vydra won a penalty and converted it. The
    referee bottled sending off Ayala, who had already been booked when he scythed
    down Vydra for the penalty, and he soon compounded that bad decision by booking
    Huddlestone along with Fabio, who had fouled him. Almost immediately Ayala made
    another stupid, mistimed, lunging tackle and at last the referee sent him off. With
    Boro down to ten men, Derby had more chances and Randolph was kept busy. On
    63 minutes Vydra seized on a weak back pass for his hat trick.



    Martin and Thorne replaced Nugent and Vydra on 67 minutes. Boro continued to
    win corners but Derby continued to defend well. The home side had plenty of
    possession but it was mostly slow and aimed at keeping the score down, rather
    than building attacks. The Rams eased up too. As in the first half, Huddlestone
    and Ledley got further forward and started a few well-worked moves. Martin and
    Thorne had chances but they didn't test the keeper. Russell replaced Ledley with
    6 minutes to go. Former Derby loan player Bamford missed a good chance to grab
    a goal. Randolph made a great save from Lawrence, who should have scored.
    At the other end Traore shot wide with Boro's last chance. This was an assured
    professional performance by the Rams.
    FT Middlesbrough 0-3 Derby

    Derby's first win at Middlesbrough since January 2000 (and their first clean sheet
    since 1989) lifted them to 6th place, still with a game in hand.

    All I can say is I'm glad I didn't go!

    I've made the almost endless journey up there twice only to find that the fans were the only ones from Derby up there. So not going today and finding that Derby County did turn up is fine by me! IT sounds like a very professional performance today, holding them at bay, then hitting them on the break - very Rowett! It also sounds like we grew in confidence and belief so a great result. And yet again I haven't mentioned the ref, who should have sent Ayala off much sooner than he did - OOOPS!

    Thanks to RamsTV I managed to watch about half of the game. Half a dozen screen freezes in each half resulted in my having to reset and wait until it the link refreshed. Even worse, I got more than a dozen pop up screens containing error messages, in the first half, resulting in my having to log out, log in and go again. 2nd half was slightly better but not much. I had taken screen shots of 9 of the error messages and sent those off in an email at HT. There were some teething problems in the forst two or three games but since then it has been good...... until the QPR game when I had half a dozen of these abberations through the game. The Boro game was even worse for unwanted interruptions. I hope it's sorted before the Ipswich game. I will be at the Burton game so shouldn't get any problems in that game.

    Based on the bits and bobs I did see...... missed the Carson save from themanwhosenamejustseemstogetlonga as I got an error message just before it. Got the video back about 15 seconds before the opening goal and lost it again before they showed the replay. Saw the penalty decision and the penalty itself but again not the replay. Prior to the 3rd goal I had had 5 minutes of completely uninterrupted video and when it went in I had a flashback to a certain Peschisolido goal but this time without the aid of a coffee cup.

    To make a full and proper verdict on things I will have to watch the full 90 but, based on what I saw, this was our 2nd good performance in the past 11 games, during which period we only lost to Reading.

    Too soon IMO to say that the team has now sussed what it is that GR wants and they are putting it together well but if we are still playing as well in half a dozen games time then we can be reasonably happy that we are on the way to a decent season.

    Apparently, the word "Vydra" in Czech means Otter.

    I don't think he can get much hotter after his hat-trick, can he?

    After last season's performances I was seriously wondering whether he'd sink or swim.
