COCU HAILS END OF A ‘TOUGH WEEK’

ONLY £1.50 EVERY SUNDAY IN RETAILERS

DERBY COUNTY manager Phillip Cocu breathed a sigh of relief after the Rams fi nished a turbulent week on a high note by beating Birmingham.

Cocu and owner Mel Morris spoke to fans before the game to apologise for the incident in which Tom Lawrence and Mason Bennett were charged with drink driving and captain Richard Keogh suffered a season-ending knee injury.

On the pitch, Derby raced into a two-goal lead, but were then pegged back by the Blues. Rams keeper Kelle Roos then kept out a Lukas Jutkiewicz penalty before Jamie Paterson netted a 74th-minute winner.

Cocu said: “It was a very difficult week, to get the win and the way we got it was a special way. We made it more difficult than we should have but maybe it had to be this way.

and for my part as a manager. I don’t like excuses, brushing things under the carpet, we have to face it like it is.

“People make mistakes so you have to accept it, there are consequences, but we also have to stick together and go forward and play football because the game goes on.”

Meanwhile, Slaven Bilic’s West Brom went top of the Championship with a 2-0 win at QPR in the lunchtime kick-off.

Garry Monk’s honeymoon start at Sheffield Wednesday continued with a 4-1 win at his former club Middlesbrough.
