Derby County beat Middlesbrough 2-1 at home in the Championship this afternoon.
Derby County played their first game in a week-and-a-half at home to Middlesbrough today, and the extra rest seemed to work in Derby’s favour.
They were two goals in front after half-an-hour thanks to Lee Gregory on his full debut for the club, who assisted Colin Kazim-Richards for his sixth Championship goal of the season.
Neeskens Kebano scored before the break for Middlesbrough but Warnock’s side couldn’t mount a second-half comeback, and Derby County move to 19th in the Championship table.
Derby County having looked so goal shy all season finally have an attack in place. It’s an unlikely combination of Gregory and Kazim-Richards, but fans have quickly warmed to the pair.
Gregory impressed in particular today – his first-half performance was as good as any Derby forwards’ this season and plenty of Derby County fans recognised that.
