Derby County manager Nigel Clough says that he is "delighted" not to have lost against Blackburn Rovers in their opening match of the Championship season.

Derby County manager Nigel Clough has said that Blackburn Rovers deserved their late equaliser in their opening game of the Championship season at Pride Park.

Johnny Russell's first-half penalty had the Rams on course to take all three points until Leon Best rescued a draw for the visitors in the 89th minute.

"I think over the balance of the game it was a fair result," Clough told Sky Sports News. "It's just disappointing the manner in which we conceded and the lateness of it.

"It's always difficult, the first one. It's a big occasion for everybody and I'm delighted we didn't lose."

Derby travel to Boundary Park on Tuesday to face Oldham Athletic in the first round of the League Cup.
