Back to square one after Pride Park shocker

Derby County

Wednesday’s one-game revival came to an abrupt halt with a lifeless display in a 3-0 defeat by Derby at Pride Park

More than 4,000 Wednesday fans travelled to Derby looking for the team to build on last week’s first win of the season against Reading … instead, they witnessed an Owls team that was off the pace from the start and one that hardly troubled our ex-keeper Lee Grant throughout the game.

Buxton put the home side in front on half-time and further goals from Hughes and Martin all but ended the game as a contest.

We found ourselves outpassed, outfought and out-thought all over the pitch for the entire 90 minutes and the defeat puts us back in the Championship drop zone, with questions once again arising over Dave Jones’ future at Hillsborough.
