Floodlights enlighten Derby!

on Sun 30 Dec 2018, 9:21 am
Manager Frank Lampard said he had never before been involved in a match like Derby County's astonishing 4-3 win over Norwich City.
Jack Marriott grabbed a dramatic late winner as the Rams recovered from 2-0 and then 3-2 down - with five minutes remaining - to edge a gripping game delayed for 20 minutes because of floodlight failure.
"It had everything," Lampard said. "I have certainly never gone back to the dressing room and then come back like that before and as a manager I have never been involved in a game with two late goals like that."

--------------------------  

"We are unbelievably disappointed," Farke said. "The football we played in the first 30 minutes was some of the best I've seen here. But we didn't protect our goal too well in the first half. I don't want to use the floodlight problem as an excuse but if it hadn't been for that I am sure we would have gone on and won the game. We had just scored, we had the momentum with us, and the delay gave Derby a chance to take a break and make changes. It is difficult to accept that we have lost this game. For most of the first half Derby just couldn't handle our quality."

"I think the delay worked in our favour because Norwich had just scored their goal and the momentum was with them," said Lampard, who occupy the final play-off place, four points clear of seventh-placed Birmingham City. "It was bad timing for them and good timing for us because it gave us the chance to reorganise things and I thought David Nugent did a superb job when he came on, playing a part in both our goals. The players deserve so much credit for coming away from a tough place like this with three points."
