Derby beat Norwich 1-0 at the weekend
The Rams racked up their 4th consecutive victory in the Championship on Saturday with a narrow victory over the Canaries.
Captain Richard Keogh described the win as the 'Best all round performance' from the resurgent Rams this season and issued a warning to the rest of the division suggesting 'This is just the start'
Since Steve McClaren was drafted in to replace Nigel Pearson, the Rams have been upwardly mobile.
After scoring a single goal in their first nine Championship games this season, they've been free-flowing in the last couple of weeks and have netted nine times in the last four matches moving up to 9th as a result.
The Irishman suggested beating Norwich proved they were 'moving in the right direction' and asked his team-mates to 'Maintain these standards'.
However, the boss isn't getting carried away asking his players to 'keep their feet on the ground'. McClaren is in his second spell at the club and has won 5 of his 7 games in the dugout and asked his squad to prove that they can do it on a consistent basis.
Derby travel to struggling Wigan on Saturday afternoon bidding for a 5th consecutive victory.
