The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

A ROU­TINE win. A grisly end. Derby were en­joy­ing the per­fect day un­til Chris Baird and Joe Garner col­lided, leav­ing the Rams skip­per prone on the turf. Thank­fully, it seems the drama was more ter­ri­fy­ing than the re­al­ity.

For Si­mon Grayson, how- ever, the en­tire 90 min­utes was a hor­ror show. Yes, Derby are a good side who will give plenty of sides a beat­ing. But there’s no es­cap­ing the fact that Pre­ston look light­weight up front. The Cham­pi­onship is filled with men like the bruis­ing Chris Martin and teak­tough Jason Shack­ell.

It’s one thing to be out­played, but another to be bul­lied into sub­mis­sion.
