Derby fans react on Twitter to Liverpool loanee Ibe's performance v Huddersfield

Jordon Ibe

Derby County fans took to Twitter on Tuesday night to have their say on Jordon Ibe's performance in the 3-2 home win over Huddersfield Town.

Derby County bounced back from successive league defeats to beat Huddersfield 3-2 on Tuesday night at the iPro Stadium, with Liverpool loanee Jordon Ibe among the goalscorers.

The 18-year-old fired the home side in front after just seven minutes, before Harry Bunn equalised for Chris Powell’s side on 22 minutes

Johnny Russell then restored the Rams' advantage just before half-time, tapping in a rebound after Alex Smithies parried Chris Martin's shot, before Simon Dawkins came off the bench to increase the lead with 13 minutes left.

Mark Hudson gave the visitors a consolation goal in stoppage-time, prompting manager Steven McClaren to claim post-match that his team deserved to win by more than one goal.

‘I’m disappointed with the goal at the end, we deserved to win by two goals at least and I am pleased with the performance and the result – especially after Saturday,’ he told the club’s official website.

‘It was a good reaction against a Huddersfield team who were very dangerous and they proved they can score goals.

‘To come through, get the result and get that kind of disciplined performance after Saturday, was very good.’

Ibe was certainly one of the brighter performers on the night, showing clear glimpses of the player who many believe is set for a bright future at Anfield.

However, the England Under-20 international’s end product was also found somewhat lacking, leading to a mixed reaction among fans to his overall showing.
