Derby County manager Nigel Clough believes that Friday's 1-0 loss to Crystal Palace in the Championship was "harsh" on his players.

Derby County manager Nigel Clough has claimed that Friday's 1-0 defeat to Crystal Palace in the Championship was "very harsh" on his players.

Palace goalkeeper Julian Speroni pulled off a number of saves at Pride Park, including an 86th-minute penalty from Conor Sammon, as Yannick Bolasie's goal settled matters between the sides.

"We can't ask much more from the players, not just the effort but the level of performance," Clough told Sky Sports News.

"To come off without so much as a point for our efforts is very harsh on the players."

The defeat has left Derby in 12th place in the Championship table.
