Nigel Clough: Derby boss admits Nathan Tyson will have to be patient

Derby manager Nigel Clough has told Nathan Tyson he will still have to wait for a starting role despite his spectacular finish which sealed a 2-0 Championship win over Barnsley.

Tyson came off the bench to smash in an unstoppable 20-yard strike in the 90th minute to finish off the visitors after James O'Connor had put Derby ahead.

"It was a lovely way to finish and meant we were not sweating going into the last few minutes," Clough said.

"Everyone has to play their part and it's absolutely vital that even when they come off the bench, they contribute.

"He's pressing for a start but the front two have played so well that he understands it's difficult for him to get in so all he can do is keep doing what he did tonight, put a goal in when he comes on and be a nuisance.

"You never know we might get an injury in training this week and then he's ready to come in."

Clough admitted his team also had to show patience to break down a hard-working Barnsley side.

"We knew it would be tough because Barnsley are fighting for their lives and it was important we didn't concede. We had to show patience tonight and keep doing the right things."
