Central defender Curtis Davies was left frustrated with the manner of the goals Derby County conceded in their 3-0 loss against Charlton Athletic at The Valley.

Macauley Bonne gave the Addicks the lead on six minutes before second half goals from Naby Sarr and Conor Gallagher secured Lee Bowyer’s men the three points.

And Davies, who skippered the Rams, was disappointed with how easily the hosts found the back of the net.

“We know Charlton are a well organised side, they can switch their formations within the game and we know they start quickly,” he told RamsTV.

“We gave them an early goal and from there they were able to sit off, conserve a bit of energy, leave us to be more expansive and exert a lot more energy trying to get back into the game.

“We got into some good areas in both halves without really making that final pass or we were just offside so we never really threatened their goalkeeper.

“In the second half, I lost my man for the second goal. I hold my hands up. He headed it in at the back stick and it’s an uphill task then when you are 2-0 down.

“Their third goal was a good strike but it came from us making simple mistakes from trying to play out so it’s highly frustrating.

“We need to be a lot better come Wednesday night against Wigan Athletic because we are back at Pride Park and it’s going to be really important to try and keep momentum going there but we need to leave this one behind us."

The result ended the Rams’ five-game unbeaten run in the division and Davies wants to move on quickly from this result.

“The games come quick in the Championship,” he said. “Even though we are disappointed today, we know we have a chance to rewrite it against Wigan.

“It won’t be easy by any means; we have got to respect each team in this league but we are trying to build some momentum at home in particular and hopefully we can get another win and climb back up the table.”
