Redknapp, who was appointed as a football advisor at Derby in March, has outlined how the Rams’ game has changed recently.
“At Derby County I thought our play was too slow but in the last few weeks we’ve been getting the ball forward a bit quicker and making a lot more chances,” the Englishman wrote in The Telegraph while explaining why a lot of possession does not always bring success.
Redknapp’s comments will be good news for the Derby fans, as the team are preparing for the playoffs at the moment.
Derby have confirmed their place in the top six of the Championship table this season.
The Rams are just three matches away from playing in the Premier League, and Redknapp’s observation that the team are creating more chances is very positive.
|Derby||Derby vs Bolton||20||1|
|Derby||Bristol C vs Derby||14||1|
|Derby||Charlton vs Derby||14||1|
|Derby||Derby vs Hull City||13||1|
|Derby||Derby vs Sheff Wed||8||1|
|Derby||Cardiff vs Derby||3||1|
As the above Opta Stats table shows, Derby created as many as 72 chances in six Championship matches in the month of April - 12 per game on average.
This suggests that the Rams do have players who are creative and imaginative, and the fans should be optimistic about their chances in the playoffs.
