Derby manager Nigel Clough sees the victory over Bristol City at Ashton Gate on Saturday as something of a kick start for his side’s away form.

Derby have been finding it hard to reproduce their home form on the road this term, but against City, goals from Jeff Hendrick and Craig Bryson proved to be enough to end the Rams run of four straight away defeats.

Clough told reporters after the game: ‘We know that if we are to get where we want to be this season our away form has to improve, so this was a huge result.

‘Bristol have been struggling at home, but they are still a dangerous side with some terrific away wins to prove that.

‘We took our chances and then kept the ball well to kill off the game, so all credit to the players.’
