Some Derby County supporters have taken to Twitter to comment on George Evans following his performance in the 1-1 draw with Queens Park Rangers on Saturday.

The Rams saw their five-game winning home run come to an end against QPR.

Struggling with injuries, Derby took the lead through Martyn Waghorn’s excellent free kick. QPR, however, deservedly equalised via Eberechi Eze’s penalty.

Derby pushed for a winner in the second half, but they ultimately struggled and lacked quality. Taking to Twitter, supporters singled out Evans for having a poor game.

 

Krystian Bielik’s injury in the warm up forced a late change for Derby.

Former Reading midfielder Evans was initially named on the bench. Bileik’s injury, however, saw him come in for the Pole alongside the energetic Duane Holmes.

Evans is comfortable in possession. He can pick a pass. But he lacks the drive to move the team forward and far too often he opts for a safety option first.

His performances are reminiscent of Jacob Butterfield who Derby released last summer.

Off the ball, Evans has a passive approach. He isn’t aggressive in the tackle, and despite standing at just over 6ft, he isn’t physically imposing or brave enough.

Over the course of the 90 minutes, Evans made just one tackle. 5tf 6inch Duane Holmes, on the other hand, made six tackles. Something just isn’t right there.

Derby boss Phillip Cocu will be hoping Bielik is available for the trip to Blackburn Rovers next weekend. He has quickly become such a vital player for the Rams.
