Wolves 1-1 Derby

Theo Robinson

Theo Robinson struck deep into injury time to rescue a deserved point for Derby against Wolves.

Robinson was reprimanded by County for tweeting about being dropped before the Rams' 2-0 defeat by Bolton on Tuesday.

But he redeemed himself with a well-taken goal to deny the hosts their second victory of the season.

Kevin Doyle opened the scoring from close range, converting David Edwards's first-half cross.

Robinson's late strike prevented back-to-back victories for new Wolves manager Stale Solbakken, who had to reshuffle his side following the

Edwards was brought into the side to replace him and he was central to the home side's opener, crossing for Slawomir Peszko, who cleverly let the ball run past him to allow Doyle to strike.

Derby responded by keeping the ball well, and could have been level when Richard Keogh and Ronald Zubar both missed good headed chances.

And the Rams, still searching for a first win this season, found the goal their possession warranted when Robinson stepped off the bench to secure a share of the points.

Wolves manager Stale Solbakken: "We started well but we lost our rhythm.

"Carl [Ikeme] saved us a couple of times in the first-half. In the second there were not so many big chances but we looked more tired than Derby and many players struggled with cramp.

"When you concede a goal in the last minute it is a hard one to take but they probably deserved it.

"We will try to get in replacements for [Matt] Jarvis and [Steven] Fletcher in the next few days. We will work hard in the next few days to make sure we are more competitive."

Derby manager Nigel Clough: "We deserved the three points not just one.

"We created good chances and the other team have one shot and get one goal. It will turn for us as long as we keep doing the things we did today.

"That is what pleased us the most. We just kept playing and doing the right things until the 93rd, 94th minute."
