On loan winger Harry Wilson’s two strikes were enough to help Derby County to all three points in a 2-1 home win over Swansea City.

Derby County’s on loan winger Harry Wilson scored his sixth and seventh goals of the Championship season on Saturday. He also continued his own personal goal of the season competition, hitting a stunning left footed strike beyond Swansea shot stopper Erwin Mulder.

The Welshman’s good form has seen him linked with a potential return to parent club Liverpool when the January transfer window opens. However, Derby County manager Frank Lampard will be keen to keep the youngster with him for the rest of the season and he was full of praise for Wilson after another impressive performance versus Swansea.

“He’s in good form,” Lampard told the Derby Telegraph.

“Harry’s first goal was a great strike. We know he strikes the ball well. He needs to get his shots away and when he does, he’s a big threat. Both goals were clean, quality strikes.

“You need a moment of magic, and he produced it, but I liked his all-round performance.

“Your eye can easily be drawn to Harry’s strikes but he is a young developing player and I thought his work rate was very good, alongside that of all of our attacking players and midfield players. I thought they worked very hard.

“Harry gets the headlines, and deservedly so for the moments of quality which we know he can produce.

“Harry is a developing player and that’s why it’s good to have him here,” Lampard said.
