Derby County lost their first home game of the new campaign this afternoon, going down 2-0 against big-spending Wolves at Pride Park.

This result not only highlighted the Rams’ need to delve into the transfer market in the final two weeks of the window – to add some much-needed creativity and attacking quality that was severely lacking today – but also the fact that Wolves will be one of the teams to beat this season. Nuno Esperito Santo’s side enthralled with their attacking play against Derby today, with the Rams unable to get any sort of stranglehold on the game, due in no small part to the presence of summer signing Ruben Neves in the heart of the visitors’ midfield.

Many Derby fans consequently took to Twitter to vent their frustrations at the performance of Gary Rowett’s men:

 

 

Additionally, many took to social media to praise Wolves for their performance, which oozed class from start to finish:

 

Nevertheless, some supporters also stated the need to remain patient, especially considering the season is only two games old:

Derby will be hoping to bounce back from this disappointing result on Tuesday, when they host Alex Neil’s Preston North End, who themselves held Leeds to a goalless draw at Elland Road this afternoon. It is unlikely that the Rams will make any additions to their squad before this match, meaning Rowett will have a lot to ponder ahead of this tie, as he attempts to lead his side to a first victory of the season.

Meanwhile, Wolves have a tricky trip to Hull City, also on Tuesday. Leonid Slutsky’s men convincingly overcame Burton Albion earlier today, winning 4-1, proving that Wolves will have to be at their best to keep their 100% win record intact.
