Derby manager Steve McClaren has said that he is capable of achieving automatic promotion to the Premier League, this season.

McClaren says that his side are capable of winning their remaining 7 games to finish in the top two, preferably at the top.

He also went on to say that clear mistakes have been made, and his squad are aware of that.

“Absolutely, we’re capable of doing that.” said the ex-England coach after their 2-0 loss away at Wolves. “We have got ourselves into the top three or four all the time and in the last few weeks we have fallen below that. I accept we make mistakes, we have made errors which have cost us and individuals know that, there’s no criticism.”

Next Friday, Derby continue to fight for promotion as they face current league-leaders Watford, in a crucial promotion game.
