Louie Sibley scored a stoppage-time goal to help Derby County produce one of the close football scores of the weekend in the Championship. Hayden Coulsen was sent off for the visitors in the 35th minute before Tom Lawrence was sent off two minutes after the break. Just when it looked like both teams would share the points, Sibley broke Peterborough’s hearts with a dramatic winner in the second minute of stoppage time.
Derby’s Wayne Rooney: “It’s stupid, it’s a stupid tackle from him and he knows that. He’s reacted, I think he got a bang to his head. I’ve said to him he’s very lucky he’s got a manager who understands the situation because I’ve done it many times myself. But it’s disappointing and we lose him for three games now although it’s a chance for somebody else to come in. We’ve had to deal with a lot of issues this season and it’s another one.”
Peterborough’s Darren Ferguson: “It’s a tough one to take so you can imagine how we’re all feeling in the dressing room after putting so much into the game. But sometimes as a manager, all you ask of your players is to give everything and no one can doubt that set of players gave everything today. A week that we felt was going to be pivotal towards the season to only get one point from it is very disappointing. It’s a huge concern. the number of shots we had and the shots on target are nowhere near enough.”
