Match 31 – League. Saturday 5th February 2011
Portsmouth (A) – Another Late Blow.
Derby were still looking for their second win of the New Year. It was the Rams who took the lead on thirty-four minutes, after some good work from Cywka, on the left wing, who then crossed in for Steve Davies to finish.
Derby held their own for the rest of the match as Pompey struggled to break through.
However, they got their equaliser as Derby conceded another late goal, this time on eighty-nine minutes, when David Nugent’s looping shot beat Bywater in the Derby goal.
Inability to close out matches was letting Derby down again.
Final Score: Draw 1 -1. –
