Clough calls for last stand against Addicks

With faltering Derby County still not safe from relegation, Nigel Clough has called for one last stand to take three easy points off bottom club Charlton on Saturday:

Given their dubious defence, Derby may not find their ram raid against the Addicks as easy as they think. Charlton are now unbeaten since they went down 2-1 to promoted Wolves. It seems to me that this is a case for an attacking 4-4-2 formation to add some excitement to the game and unsettle Derby.

Morale at the Rams has been boosted by the return of their 'secret weapon' Luke Varney from a loan spell at the Owls. Varney is reported to be fighting fit, but whether he knows where the goal is remains uncertain. But, of course, like all former players, he could score against us.

Brakes hope to do the ton on Saturday when they face Leighton Town away in their last game of the season. A win would give them 101 points, a good total, although there have been five worrying defeats during the season.

When I saw that Varney had scored two for the Owls on Saturday I nearly fell off my chair.

They must have been in swinging crosses.
