Daryl delighted to notch a brace for Town but admits feeling flat after the 90 minutes as Blues let 4-1 lead slip to only take a point from Pride Park

Daryl Murphy admitted that the Town dressing-room was very flat at full-time, after the Blues surrended a 4-1 first-half lead to draw 4-4 with Derby at Pride Park.

The former Celtic striker netted twice for Town in that first period, with an own goal from Zak Whitbread and a further strike from Aaron Cresswell extending the lead for Mick McCarthy’s side.

However the Rams hit back in the second-half through a Craig Bryson brace and a goal from Jamie Ward, after Leicester loanee Whitbread had earlier struck in the right net during the first-half.

“It’s great to have scored tonight but I should be standing here on a high after a win but we’re all feeling very flat tonight,” the Irishman told the Club website.

“We should have had the game wrapped up after our first-half display but we’ve allowed Derby a way back into the game, which they’ve took and we’re disappointed to have dropped two points.

“On a personal note though I’m delighted to have scored two goals tonight and that takes me up to three for the season.

“Obviously I want to score as many goals as I possibly can and it gives me confidence for future games now. As I said though, it’s just frustrating not to be standing here all three points.”
