Derby County keeper Lee Grant insists that his side will bounce back next season following the disappointment of their Championship playoff final defeat to QPR.

Derby County keeper Lee Grant is confident that his side will bounce back from their Championship playoff final defeat to Queens Park Rangers next season.

The Rams fell to a 1-0 defeat at Wembley as Bobby Zamora struck in the 90th minute to fire Harry Redknapp's side into the Premier League, despite being second best for the majority of the game.

Grant told the club's official website: "That's football unfortunately. We have not come away with the right result, but we can certainly hold our heads up high with how we've performed, not only on Saturday, but over the course of the whole season.

"We didn't quite manage to create some of the chances like we have done over the past few weeks and months and we were made to pay for that at the other end.

"We'll move on from it and we'll come back stronger next season."

Derby finished third in the Championship under Steve McClaren.
