Despite scoring his first goal since moving to Pride Park from Northampton Town during the summer Michael Jacobs was disappointed with the result and sees this afternoon`s trip to Turf Moor to take on Burnley as an opportunity to put things right.

Jacobs first goal for The Rams came on the stroke of halftime after a headed clearance from a corner came to him on the edge of the box and he took a touch before firing an unstoppable volley into the bottom corner of the net. However, Hull City took the spoils when Abdoulaye Faye headed in from a corner five minutes into the second period and the winger knows that with the short turnaround on games over the festive period that Derby don`t have long to wait to put things right. Talking to dcfc.co.uk about the game Jacobs said:

“Games do come thick and fast over this Christmas period, and it is a good opportunity for us to bounce back – we have not got to wait a week like we normally would. Charlie Austin produced two goals out of nothing earlier in the season at Pride Park, and it was on a day we played particularly well, so we owe them one and hopefully we can get all three points.’
