Better performance though still no win

Better performance though still no win.



A heartening performance from a much stronger-looking Rams lineup cheered the fans, but the team still failed to find the net and the points.

Andy Dawson's return added some real stability at the back, and Melford Knight looked strong and assured in the middle, with Alex Meaney side-lined through injury. As the game wore on The Rams looked increasingly assured and likely to find the opening, but a fortuitous free-kick on the edge of the box was cruelly but expertly curled into the top corner by Justin Richards for the visitors, crushing Rammy's hopes with 20 minutes of the match remaining.

Tuesday night sees The Rams visit old foes Darlington before they travel to Buxton on Saturday in the FA Cup.
