Derby County ensured they finish the season on a high as they produced one of the comfortable football scores of the weekend in the Championship. Malcolm Ebiowei opened the scoring in the 73rd minute before Eiran Cashin doubled their advantage in the 82nd minute. Derby who was already relegated moved above Peterborough United in the table. Blackpool moved down to 16th in the table with a game to go.
Blackpool’s Neil Critchley: “When you’ve got a crowd as we did, you want to give them a day to remember with some goals and a win. Unfortunately, we’ve not been able to do that, but it doesn’t change my opinion of the season as a whole – we’ve had a very good season. It may be epitomized our season; we were the better team, on top, but didn’t take our chances and the two goals we conceded were really poor.”
Derby’s Wayne Rooney: “Ebiowei has deserved a goal, so I’m delighted for him because his performances have deserved that. It is a positive for us to get him off the mark. It is a shame there is only one game left, but I am sure in his career there will be a lot more. Cashin has also deserved a goal for his performances. I’m delighted with the win, but performance-wise we can play better than that. It’s a funny game, football, there have been much better performances away from home and we have come away with nothing.”
