Rams boss rues slow start
Derby County manager Nigel Clough was at a loss to explain his side's sluggish start to their 1-0 defeat to Huddersfield.
The Rams had the worst possible start as they fell behind to a Danny Ward goal after 47 seconds and couldn't find an equaliser.
Clough said: "We've been starting games well but we didn't do that today. It set us back a bit. The goal gave them a massive lift and then we didn't really get going until the second half.
"We got into it a little bit in the first half, but the second half we really got on the ball but it was a bit late.
"We were a little bit flat (in the first half). We got into some great positions to cross the ball and we chose not to do it. We were not doing the basic things well and didn't make the right decisions in the final third.
"Some of our play up to the edge of the box was excellent in the second half."
