Steve McClaren says Derby County will soon find their rhythm

Comments (0)

Derby County boss, Steve McClaren, believes his team will find their rhythm after watching them slip to a first defeat of the season last night.

They lost 3-2 against Charlton Athletic at The Valley and have collected four points from their opening three matches.

McClaren says he is not worried but admits the team is lacking consistency.

“It’s early season and we haven’t found that rhythm yet,” he said. “In certain areas we were good and certain areas we were poor.

“There’s no consistency of performance but that’s normal at this time of the season.

“I have no worries. I have said to the group, there are no worries at the present moment, we will get better.

“There is no consistency over 90 minutes, which we are searching for but it will come.”

McClaren was disappointed by the defending.

Derby had kept three consecutive clean sheets going into the Championship clash at Charlton.

“You cannot win a game if you concede three goals,” said McClaren.

“What has always been our strength has let us down.

“We made a bad start, then dominated the rest of the first half but the penalty on the stroke of half-time knocked the wind out of us.

“Then bad errors led to Charlton’s third goal.”
