Harry Wilson with another screamer as the Rams beat WBA 4-1

The Rams travelled to the Hawthorns this evening and face a tough task at former Ram’s centre-half, now WBA Manager Darren Moore’s side. The Baggies relegated from the Premiership last season still have some very good players capable of inflicting a lot of damage to a fledgeling Rams side that has just regained confidence after a sterling effort and win over Sheffield United at the weekend.

Derby County started the game with a strong attacking line-up against WBA. Lawrence, Marriott, and Waghorn backed up by Mount and Wilson from midfield, the midfield General Huddlestone. The Rams will be hoping for a start that they experienced on Saturday with a goal in just 19 seconds, but the reality is they will need to defend well and hit the Baggies on the break.

Derby hit a quick goal in the 8th minute a poor back pass from WBA resulted in Jack Marriott ghosting in to slot it past the keeper

Tom Lawrence congratulated for another stunning goal against WBA

A free kick given away by Tom Lawrence put pressure on the Rams but the missed free kick resulted in the Rams making a swift counter-attack and Tom Lawrence slotted home a ball from inside the Penalty area 2-0 to the Rams in the 15th Minute.

Derby continues to harass and close down WBA and the former Premiership side didn’t like the swift biting tackles and was visibly shaken as the game entered the 28th minute.

Halftime and although Derby are two goals to the good WBA are still very much in the match. A cracking second 45 minutes coming up.

The second half starts and WBA make a change Tyrone Mears the former Derby County player comes on. More drama as Dwyte Gale then limped off the pitch to be replaced by Robson Kanu.

In the 50th minute with Derby under pressure, they win the ball back and another superb shot from 25 yards finds the bottom of the net.

Jack Marriott, did what his manager asked, scored in his second consecutive start for the Rams

Derby make their first substitution as Jack Marriott is replaced by Mason Bennett in the 67th minute.

In the 70th minute a ball won and taken up the field from his own half by defender Scott Malone was played to Mason Bennett who played the ball back to him and Malone put the ball away as though he was a striker. Malone who replace Craig Forsyth a key member of the Rams win at the weekend was an inspired change tonight from Frank Lampard.

The Rams make another substitution in the 72 minute as David Nugent comes on for Martyn Waghorn. Derby’s last substitution is made in the 80th minute when Craig Forsyth replaces Scott Malone.

Rodriguez pulled a goal back for WBA but too little too late as the Rampant Rams win 4-1

81st minute and Bogle gives away a free kick in a central area just outside the penalty area Harvey Barnes just plays it into the wall. In the resulting play after the free kick, Rodrigues riggles through the defence to score

Mason Bennett finds himself free on goal in the 85th minute only for Bennett to sky the shot into the crowd behind the goal.

92 minutes and a scramble in the Derby box results in the ball in the net but the referee gives handball by a WBA player.

Three very well deserved points for the Rams and they move on to Middlesbrough in the televised early game.
