Chelsea legend Frank Lampard remains upbeat despite suffering back-to-back defeats as manager of Derby in the Championship.

The Rams host Ipswich on Tuesday having lost 2-1 at Millwall on Saturday.

It came after they were thumped 4-1 by Leeds in Lampard’s opening home game in charge.

But former England midfielder Lampard, who was appointed this summer, believes it will take time before Derby start to gel.

He said: “I’m positive, we have nine new players, plus two players back from loan. We are changing the style and the way we do things behind the scenes – that’s what the manager’s job is.

“I understand it’ll take time but I’m seeing loads of good signs.

“We were disappointed with how we played and the result in the first home game (Leeds). We want to win in front of our home fans and have two opportunities to do that (they also host Preston on Saturday).

“With the competitive nature of the Championship, it’s very hard to look through and call what the results will be. It’ll come down to what we do. If we play how we can we will be very strong.”

Derby sit 14th in the table with three points.
