Derby manager Nigel Clough insisted his side had two valid penalty claims turned down in the goalless draw at derby rivals Leicester.

The Rams felt they should have been awarded a penalty when Jack Hobbs appeared to clip Rob Hulse's heels in the 62nd minute. They had a second penalty claim turned down after 70 minutes when Hulse was again involved.

Clough said: "We thought they were good shouts for penalties and if we get one who knows, we might have even sneaked a 1-0 win."

He added: "Rob has said he thought his heels were clipped for the first one and the second one we thought was more of a penalty as he seemed to be completely impeded as he went up for the header.

"Their defender didn't have any intention whatsoever of playing the ball."
