A “very boring” first 45 sees the score at 0-0.
However, it took just two minutes of the second half to see the deadlock broken, Nathan Elligton easily putting the away side in front. As the Radio Diamonds commentator said, “a goal is just what this game needed to liven it up; unfortunately it came for Derby County”
