    a good 3-1 today is what the fans expect against a poor Derby side, normally they are much stronger, just goes to show how bum clenching these next few weeks are going to be . Reading have come from no where but are well amongst it. We have the strongest team in the division with the exception maybe of the 'ammers. Comon saints time to give everyone a reality check, good win today to scare away the scavangers,lets pull away and let the rest fight for the scraps.
    We are top of the league (hopefully) by 4.45pm
    Technically we'll be top of the league at kick of while still at 0-0 ;) westham dont play until Tuesday night I fancy them to draw away at blackpool hopefully! :)"

Clough hoping for a St Mary's result

DERBY boss Nigel Clough insists his stuttering Rams side have a “glimmer” of hope at St Mary’s today.

County are winless in their last four Championship games and are up against a Saints team that boast the best home record in the division.

Yet Clough believes the result is not a foregone conclusion.

The Rams manager points to recent away wins from Bristol City and Leicester at St Mary’s, as well as Millwall’s FA Cup success there this month, as reason for hope.

“They got off to such a fantastic start that it’s allowed them to have a couple of off games,” said Clough.

“They’ve lost their incredible unbeaten home run as well in that time.

“That wasn’t going to keep going on and on and on.

“So that gives us a little bit of a glimmer as well, that other teams have been there recently and won.”

While Saints’ home form has undoubtedly dipped in the last two months, they are also coming off the back of an impressive 2-0 win over Burnley at St Mary’s last weekend.
