Derby County manager Paul Clement says his side can still improve, despite their eight-game unbeaten run lifting them to fifth in the Championship.

Since a home defeat by Leeds at the end of August, the Rams have turned their form around in impressive style.

Clement told BBC Radio Derby: "We are on a good run of results. We've won six and drawn two since that Leeds game.

"We are definitely moving in the right direction but still have so much to improve on."

Derby drew their first four matches and were then beaten 2-1 by Leeds at home to lie 19th in the early-season table.

But it has since been a turnaround in fortunes for the Rams, who missed out on a play-off place on the final day of last season.

Clement, who took over from Steve McClaren in the summer, said: "They're a really good group of players to work with.

"They've responded to everything I have asked them to do since I have been here.

"They have high standards. They can be pleased with what they have achieved, not only this week but also in the last eight games."
