Derby County manager Steve McClaren is confident that his team will respond positively to their dramatic 2-1 Championship defeat at Brentford.

Derby County manager Steve McClaren has backed his players to respond positively to their late defeat at Brentford.

The Rams lost their place at the top of the Championship table on Saturday as a 94th-minute goal saw them go down 2-1 at Griffin Park.

Despite having nothing to show for their efforts, McClaren is confident that his side will bounce back when they host Huddersfield Town on Tuesday.

"It's usually us who score at the end, so we will have to go away, lick our wounds and see a reaction on Tuesday," the former England boss told BBC Sport.

"We started so well and were passing the ball around nicely, but in the second half we wanted to run with it and have too many touches and that allowed Brentford back into the game."

The result has seen Derby slip down to fifth place in the standings, with Watford now leading the way.
