Some Derby County supporters have taken to Twitter to respond to captain Curtis Davies following the defender’s message after the 2-2 draw with Barnsley.

The warning signs were there all night. Barnsley’s set-pieces, taken by Alex Mowatt, were causing the Rams numerous problems and the Tykes’ equaliser came from a corner.

Davies lamented on Twitter Derby’s bad luck and struggles from set-pieces. Some fans, however, have seemingly had enough and feel it’s a recurring issue.

 

Derby County’s set-piece struggles:

Derby should have taken all three points. After falling behind, the Rams led at the break 2-1 thanks to in-form striker Chris Martin and Tom Huddlestone’s penalty.

Barnsley threw caution to the wind in the second half and it presented several chances for Derby to kill the game on the break. The final ball, however, was always lacking.

And in the fourth minute of stoppage time, poor defending from a corner allowed Barnsley’s Cauley Woodrow to touch home after Conor Chaplin shot through a raft of bodies.

Derby have now conceded 15 goals in ten Championship games. Incredibly, nine of those goals have come from set-pieces. It’s becoming a common theme for the Rams.

Manager Phillip Cocu must be so frustrated. Derby have plenty of height in their ranks, which makes it all the more puzzling for supporters to understand.

However, it is a problem which dates back to last season and needs amending quickly.
