Paul Clement gives insight into what Derby County are practising in training

Derby County West Stand

Derby County have scored just seven times in their first eight Championship matches this season.

Derby County boss Paul Clement has told the Derby Telegraph that his side are working hard in training to increase their attacking threat.

The Rams drew 0-0 with Burnley in their latest outing, and it was a match which further highlighted the problems that the side have endured this season. 

Derby have scored just seven goals in their first eight Championship matches, but Clement insists that they are on the right track. 

"We keep practising on the training ground," he said. "We have got to get the movement right, got to work on quality deliveries, got to work on good movement in the box and players attacking the ball.

"We did those things against Burnley and their keeper made good saves and other efforts were cleared off the line. Some of the football we are playing is good. We have got to keep going."

Derby's goalscoring problems have come as a surprise, due to the attacking quality in their squad.

The Rams have the likes of Tom Ince, Johnny Russell, Chris Martin, Darren Bent and Andreas Weimann within their ranks, but none of the quintet have hit top form. 

As a result, Derby have found wins hard to come by, and they have won just two of their first eight games in the Championship this season. 

It is not all bad news for Clement's men, though, as they have shown themselves to be very hard to beat. Derby have lost just once since the start of the new term, and if they can start turning draws into wins, then they should be well positioned to launch a strong challenge for promotion.
