93% pass accuracy, nine clearances: Derby star shines in 0-0 draw

Derby County stadium entrance

Derby County drew 0-0 with Millwall on Saturday, but how did the Rams' captain Richard Keogh perform?

Derby County will be kicking themselves after failing to climb to the top of the Championship table on Saturday.

The Rams could only draw 0-0 at home to Millwall, meaning they remained third, just one point behind league leaders Norwich City.

But for all their failings up front, Derby did impress at the other end of the pitch, keeping Millwall at bay and ensuring only two of their 11 goal-scoring attempts were on target.

The club's skipper Richard Keogh played a big part in that, making one outfield block and nine effective clearances, as well as winning two duels and one interception during his 90 minutes on the pitch.

Keogh also had an outstanding 93 per cent passing accuracy, ensuring he kept his back-line calm in order to prevent a shock win for the visitors.

Derby's forwards had a day to forget, as they could manage just a single shot on target themselves despite the hosts having 63 per cent possession.

But in Keogh, they had a defender who ensured Millwall could not capitalise, and at the end of the season, this point could still prove vital.
