Stunned that we escaped with a point, and a clean sheet. A good result despite a very poor first half performance. A lot better in the second half which was crucial.

Can’t say too many have pass marks tonight, lenihan better than sat, Williams ok, bell and nyambe played well. Graham, reed and Bennett changed the white tide well enough. As much as it’s a decent point I was disappointed in the display. Dack has one of his worst games I can recall

Only watched second half but thought we looked excellent defensively. Graham was superb up front. We should have scored one through the Graham knockdown to Dack.

Big thing for me was the workrate of the final four midfielders - Bennett, Evans, Smallwood, Reed - was exceptional. Sticking those four on to defend a lead or hold a draw should be effective. Nyame was brilliant. Bell less good but not bad. 

First half sounded atrocious but I didn't see it so can't comment.

After all the positivity over the transfer window....it seems that Mowbray doesn't have faith that any of the new signings are starters just yet. Added to that there seems to be confusion over where they should play, if/when they do play. The talent is there but he needs to find the right formula.

Good point but we were so lucky, especially in the first half. The players really battled for the fans and the club but we were lacking in quality all over the field.

Mowbray really needs to shake the team up.  He made some decent signings in the summer and they need to get game time now.

Stunned that Derby can afford close to £7million for Martyn Waghorn, yet can't afford to pay for a dozen ball boys/girls. Helped add to the ponderous atmosphere of most of the game, and suited us well. 

A point is a great one after that performance. Dack looked a few yards off the pace

Battling performance with tremendous last ditch defending, very happy with a point.

Tony, please pick a midfield that can dominate an opposition from the start, we looked so much better with Bennett and Reed on the pitch.

Well done you yellow boys!!

A good point but awful performance in midfield and attack. 

Defence did ok considering the amount of attacks they faced. 

Has Rothwell run over Mowbray's dog or something?

Reed and Rothwell to start the next game please

First half it looked as though it was only a matter of time before Derby were to score. Second half however bar the free kick which hit the woodwork we were pretty comfortable and could have snatched a win if Dack could have got the ball out his feet quicker, Carson too be fair did well to come out quickly and thwart Dack before he got the ball back and hit the side netting. Lenihan was always in the right place to mop up and get a block in, can’t complain with a point on the road. Bar a few Derby spells of pressure it was a pretty comfortable point at that. It was the sort of game that if you lose 1-0 you’d absolutely slate the performance, but getting a point means it’s job done and on to the next one.

You are just so wrong. I apologise if that appears critical but sometimes you have to do the dirty bits and just accept it. There will never be a game where the opposition doesn’t have chances but none of tonight has been back to the walls hang on stuff. Mine is an opinion but the word I would use is professional

You entitled to your opinion. But you didn’t actually say if you watched the game or not.

That’s about as poor as we’ve played under Mowbray. It wasn’t a professional “shut up shop” performance. We gave the ball away regularly and have been saved from what on balance probably deserved a 2-0 Derby victory. Possibly 2-1 with Dack missing the kind of chance he normally eats for breakfast.

Still, it’s a point in an away fixture that would have been a 1-pointer target. Mowbray got his team selection wrong tonight and we didn’t look our usual selves.

Overall, we can go on about who’s opinion is right but we have to be glad of a point. Certainly we will be happier than Derby after that.

Not seen any of the game, but I’d have taken a point ahead of kick off and I’m the same now!

Reed and Brereton really need to start, possibly Rothwell too. We're starting to look stagnant and a couple of changes are overdue.

You do wonder how he has gone from one of our best players to not even on the pitch.

Very good point after a not good at all performance, Nyambe was brilliant though.

Armstrong is a big concern for me, not looking capable of affecting games.

Also a slight concern that our £6m man is behind him for a place.

Didn't see that one coming. We were awful but Derby didn't deserve a win. Dack could have nicked it but a point away at Derby is a good result.
