Derby County left Bloomfield Road empty handed yesterday and Nigel Clough blames the officials

Derby County yesterday thought they had done enough to earn a draw and a point in Blackpool but a cruel injury time strike saw them lose 2-1.

Rams boss, Nigel Clough was very angry at the late blow and blamed the loss of the point on referee Gavin Ward and his assistants.

Clough was critical of the offiials for the penalty awarded to Blackpool, which they went on to miss, and then in Clough's opinion went on in a similar vain for the rest of the game.

Sadly it may just be that Derby County and Nigel Cough have been very poor when playing away this season, winning just four games all season.

Derby gave themselves a chance of salvaging a point in the 65th minute when Ben Davies equalised and earlier Blackpool opener in the 16th Minute.

The Rams now sit in 13th place in the league and will not now be able to equal last seasons points tally. Blackpool now join the Rams on 58 points
