Darren Wassall gives his opinion on Derby County fans' booing

Derby County Huddle

Derby County threw away a three-goal lead to draw with Rotherham United.

Manager Darren Wassall has told Sky Sports that he has no issues with Derby County fans booing their side.

Derby inexplicably threw away a 3-0 lead against Rotherham United in a quite incredible match at the New York Stadium yesterday.

Two goals from Tom Ince and a Chris Martin strike seemed to set the Rams on their way to three points, but Rotherham completed a remarkable turnaround in the last 10 minutes.

The Millers scored three times to level the scores, and Derby supporters who had travelled to Yorkshire were understandably frustrated at full time.

The Rams fans showed their team no mercy at the end of the match, but Wassall says that the reaction was totally understandable, given what they had just witnessed.

"The fans were right to boo us off," Wassall admitted. "They saw us dominate Rotherham for 80 minutes, we could have been 6-0 up we were that good.

"We need to work on our game management. We should be going home with all three points and we are going home with one in a very bad frame of mind."

After Derby’s collapse, Wassall is under serious pressure in his role as manager.

The 47-year-old has won just three of his first seven games in charge at Derby, and there are fears that the Midlands side could slip out of the play-offs once again.

The Rams are currently in fifth place in the Championship table, but the likes of Cardiff City and Ipswich Town are putting their position in the top six under pressure.
