Can't knock the forward today! Put in serious effort! Vydra played well behind Nugent. Tom Ince is always class #dcfc— The Notorious Jóse (@JoeKirk99) March 18, 2017
Tom Ince is the only player grafting for Derby. Need Hughes on and to really get at them second half. #dcfc— Marc Oliver (@moliver___) March 18, 2017
