Derby County keeper Lee Grant insists his side will bounce back from their disappointing draw at home to Birmingham on Saturday.

The Rams had a 2-0 lead but two injury time goals from Paul Caddis and Clayton Donaldson ensured the Blues left Derby with a point.

Grant admits his side were left disappointed by their failure to see out the game, but has stressed Derby will respond as they bid to secure automatic promotion.

There is enough belief amongst us that we will react from this.

“There is a lot of disappointment and anger in the dressing room with regards to how we managed the last couple of the minutes of the game,” he told the Rams Player.

“We give full credit to Birmingham for their positivity and how they kept going to the death, but we know, both collectively and individually, that we can manage the situation better.”

He added: “There is enough belief amongst us that we will react from this and use today’s performance as fuel going forward.

“We will pick the bones off what happened in the last couple of minutes because that is the only time that we can be disappointed with ourselves.

“We will stick together, we will plan and we will make sure that we are right for the coming weekend.”

Derby are second in the Championship table but only goal difference separates the top four.

Bournemouth are the league leaders, with Watford third and Middlesbrough fourth.

Fifth placed Norwich have 65 points in an intense battle for automatic promotion in the Championship.

Derby are 4.00 to win the Championship title and 1.61 to be promoted, while Bournemouth are 1.61 to be promoted.
