Steve McClaren praises his Derby County team following today's 3-0 win over Sheffield Wednesday.

Derby County manager Steve McClaren has said that his team played "beautiful" football in today's 3-0 win over Sheffield Wednesday.

Goals from Jake Buxton, Will Hughes and Chris Martin sealed all three points at Pride Park, although the former England coach said that the Rams had to work hard before streaking away.

"This was one of those happy Saturdays when everything you have done in the week works out the way you want it," PA quotes McClaren as saying. "There were times when it was simply beautiful to watch.

"We had to earn the right to play our football by standing up to a side we knew would be direct and physical and once we established our superiority we were terrific.

"The quality of the football for the second and third goals was fabulous and it all stemmed from having the right balance and attitude."

Derby are ninth in the Championship.
