Metgod: We Beat One of The Best Sides

Metgod: We Beat One of The Best Sides

Derby County coach Johnny Metgod said his side beat one of the best sides in the Championship, as they recorded their first home victory since November 20th.

The 3 points helps the Rams move a big step closer to guaranteeing Championship survival, while the Swans are yet to show a response following a sudden dip in form.

Metgod said:

'The way we did it was very pleasing against one of the best sides in the Championship - maybe the best side footballing wise - after our last home win was in November.

'We showed courage and character to try and stop them playing, even in their own half and the way we did that was very pleasing.

'I think we were due a a little bit of fortune for the first goal, but I think we also got it because we tried to put them under pressure and stop them from playing.

'You just hope now this isn't going to be a one-off and we can hopefully build on it for the next nine games.

'I haven't got a target in mind (for safety). Fourth from bottom will do, even on goal difference! But it's not over yet, there are nine games to go and although this is a massive result for us and in the way we did it, it doesn't mean we can sit back and relax.'

the Swans are not one of the best sides in the division--- we can't score goals-therein lies our weakness.
