22 August 2009 05:05
Miles Addison's late goal handed Derby the points as Plymouth's troubling start to the season continued.Alan Judge, on loan from Blackburn Rovers, gave the visitors an early lead from the spot after being brought down in the area by defender Jake Buxton. Buxton soon made amends though with a well-taken equaliser from eight yards. Derby looked content to settle for a draw until Addison punished a bad mistake by goalkeeper Roman Larrieu and headed home in the 90th minute. Derby manager Nigel Clough: "I thought we deserved to win on the balance of play. We were a little bit tentative early on for some reason but when we got going, we dominated possession." "The two centre-halves were a threat and we put good balls into the box and looked pretty dangerous from set plays. "I thought we were dangerous from corners and free-kicks against a side that are good themselves at set-pieces." Plymouth manager Paul Sturrock: "I am gutted because the players gave everything they had. It looked as if our hard work and desire was going to get us a result. "I thought we had weathered the storm, and a minute before the goal we should have scored at the other end. "We have now got seven days to wait until our next game but I wish we had one tomorrow to get this frustration out."
