BBC Sport - Chris Martin: Derby County buoyed by first-leg win at Brighton
Rams buoyed by 'good omen' - Martin
- From the section Football
Derby County striker Chris Martin tells BBC East Midlands Today that beating Brighton & Hove Albion 2-1 in the first-leg of their Championship play-off semi-final despite a below par performance is a good omen.
Martin equalised from the penalty spot after Jesse Lingard put the hosts ahead on 18 minutes.
And the Rams earned a one-goal advantage to take into the second leg at home on Sunday after a Martin strike hit the crossbar and bounced in off the back of Brighton goalkeeper Tomasz Kuszczak.
