Sky Bet Championship

Delight for dominant Derby



In a tasty Football league encounter the Rams locked horns with Nottingham Forest with more than bragging rights at stake in this rivalry.With both sides competing in and around the playoff spots a win in this one was always going to be as important as any to consolidate a playoff spot with in Derby’s case an opportunity to even push for an automatic place currently obtained by High flyers Burnley and Leicester.

Without gleaming starlet Will Hughes who recently won young player of the year for the Sky Bet football league and has been linked with a decorative move to the Premier league, it was an opportune moment for a new star to step up to the play.

Derby County's Craig Bryson celebrates scoring against Nottingham Forest in the Championship

Craig Bryson celebrates scoring a hat-trick

That is exactly what happened as County fans endured a victory that will be kept in fond memory for years to come as midfielder Craig Bryson shined with an emphatic performance, as he bagged a glorious hat-rick to co-inside with his man of the match performance.The first goal a neat finish from Bryson after a scrap in the box, and a waved away shout of handball as he took control of the ball on six minutes before doubling the score line with tucking away a clever pass from Chris Martin.

Fellow Midfielder Jeff Hendrick got in on the act for the third after a swift counter-attack arguably the move of the match was finished calmly, whilst a fourth came from substitute striker Johnny Russell hammering in the Rams’ fourth from outside the area with a fantastic effort, before Bryson completed his hatrick and the win  from the spot.

Forest have certainly seen their playoff hopes potentially dashed with no wins in their past seven and now to be thumped 5-0 in a derby will dishearten Billy Davies’ side whilst the manager himself inevitably becomes under scrutiny. Despite not finding the net In their last four game,Derby finished the game winning five to nil the final score in a somewhat dominant display Overall humiliating a normally respectable rival.
