Derby 0-0 Brighton

Albion were unable to make their chances count as they left Pride Park with a solitary point after an uninspiring 0-0 draw.

Poyet's men had the upper hand for most the match, but when their possession did yield chances, they were unable to convert them into goals, as some wasteful finishing cost Albion the three points.

After a lively start from the hosts, the game settled down and the Seagulls began to find their passing stride. Their first chance fell to Andrea Orlandi, who found himself on the end of fellow Spaniard David Lopez' cross, but his steered volley ricocheted wide.

Lopez had a chance to showcase his expertise from a dead-ball, as his curling free-kick forced a fine stop from Rams' deputising keeper Adam Legzdins. Again, a goal made in Spain nearly arrived as Bruno, back from injury, crossed for Orlandi to head wide.

Stephen Dobbie, on for Will Buckley after the winger had limped off, forged some neat-link up with Ashley Barnes before skewing his effort wide of the Derby goal. Liam Bridcutt then came closest for the visitors after the break as his deflected strike landed on the crossbar.

A gilt-edged chance then arrived as two Derby players nearly fumbled the ball past their own keeper, but Legzdins saved brilliantly before Dean Hammond and Gordon Greer both went for the rebound, somehow heading wide from 4 yards out with a gaping net.

As has often been the case this season, Kuszczak, after having barely anything to do all game, pulled off a couple of great saves to preserve Albion's clean-sheet, first turning away Michael Jacobs' driven effort, before saving equally as well from a Craig Bryson strike.

County continued to apply the pressure in the closing minutes but Albion held strong to maintain their status as having the meanest defence in the Championship.
