Derby 2 West Brom 2: Clough piles on misery by admitting Hulse is for sale

07 December 2009 02:02
As if it wasn't frustrating enough to be denied victory by two bitterly contested goals - one of them a Thierry Henry copycat handball incident - Derby fans suffered more disappointment when manager Nigel Clough admitted that top scorer Rob Hulse could be sold next month.

And Clough accepted that he could be confined to the loan market for his own team-building efforts even if Hulse does pull in a major cash windfall.

For sale: Clough admits Derby will listen to offers for Rob Hulse

The striker has been linked with Wolves. Clough said: 'It's the samewith any player. If an offer comes in we will consider it on itsmerits.'

Hulse was an oddly passive figure in a tigerish Derby display whichlooked set to yield victory after Paul Dickov's 40th-minute goal madeit 1-0 with eight minutes left.

Derby were outraged when Simon Cox clearly used a hand to bundle inthe equaliser and Clough later claimed that Albion's second goal fromGraham Dorrans two minutes into injury time stemmed from a 'blatantfoul' on sub DJ Campbell.

Justice was done when Campbell poached Derby's second goal after four minutes of added time.
