Derby County manager Paul Warne has admitted that his side’s 0-0 draw away at Wycombe Wanderers was ‘frustrating.’

The Rams sit second in League One on 83 points, two points clear of third place Bolton Wanderers, but have played a game more.

The result means that the final automatic promotion place is very much up for grabs.

He said: “It's frustrating.

"We’ve got three games left and the players want it so badly that it could impact their performance.

“Some of our players weren’t on song but they were trying hard.

“First half we looked good as we created chances and we passed the ball well but we missed two absolute sitters and we need to take one of them.

“The longer the game goes, the harder it is and the longer the game went, we were lucky to not lose so this might be a really good point for us.

“It’s that time of the season when teams are fighting for promotion and relegation so the pressure mounts.

“These people aren’t robots but we need to be a bit more patient, breathe and play the way we’ve played.

“These are lads who are desperate for success and even though we don’t want to curtail that, we just need a bit more patience.”

“I thought we forced things and there were times I saw individuals than a team.
“Not through selfishness, but by someone trying to grab the game to make that moment happen but we didn’t have it.”

“That’s just how football is sometimes.”

The result was the first time that either club had kept a clean sheet against each other in what was the sixth meeting between the two sides.
