Clement explains where he has confidence at Derby County

Derby County West Stand

Derby County boss Paul Clement is keen for his team to turn around their form.

Derby County manager Paul Clement has told the Derby Telegraph that he’s got the confidence that his players can turn around their form.

Derby lost against Leeds in their last game and are still searching for their first competitive win since Clement came in over the summer to replace old boss Steve McClaren.

He’s under pressure for his team to register three points but is adamant that the Rams are doing the right things to make that eventually happen.

“I have got confidence in the players. I think they have shown they are a good football team. They can battle and fight but we have not done it consistently enough,” he told the Derby Telegraph.

“Football isn't about what you do for 20 or 25 minutes, it is about what you do for 90 minutes-plus.”

The pressure is mounting

The pressure is intense over Clement at the moment because the fans expect the club to be one of the sides in and around the top six.

It may be too early to judge Derby, but the impact a win would have in terms of taking away some of the pressure from the football club is massive.

The pressure is also firmly over the manager because he was backed in the transfer market to go out and make signings, to create a squad capable of winning promotion.

He’s not been helped by injury problems but fans won’t want to hear any excuses and will want to see the performances pick up quickly.
