Chris Hughton will have to get up from this poor result at home as soon as possible because they will be facing Premier league opponents Chelsea in the FA Cup replay on Tuesday night. This is going to be a very crucial match for both the clubs involved because it would provide them with some early success that will take a lot of pressure off their managers.

Even worse is the fact that, Derby County were coming into the match after having not scored in seven hours of football. “Very frustrating. At 2-0 up and with the fact you’re playing at home, you fully expect to go on and win. But what we have done perhaps in the last couple of games is concede uncharacteristic goals, by our standards of where we have been. That happens. We have to learn from it and look to pick it up again for the next league game,” said the Blues boss.
