Derby County continued their revival after a poor start to the new season at the weekend.
Frank Lampard’s men made it two wins on the spin with a 2-0 triumph over Preston North End last weekend, adding to their first home win over the season against Ipswich Town during the week.
So, to the latest round-up, then, we take a hop, skip and a jump through all things Derby County from the last week.
Having made his debut in the defeat to Millwall two weeks ago, Jayden Bogle impressed in the two games since, but his inaugural run in the Rams’ first-team came to a premature end against Preston on the weekend when the right-back was replaced through injury.

The defender tweeted after the win, but the injury is not as severe as first feared, with tests revealing the 18-year-old has suffered nothing more than a sprained ankle.
Mason Mount gave Derby the lead at Pride Park at the weekend before Richard Keogh added a second to clinch the three points, in what was a solid display from the defender after a shaky start to the campaign under new instruction from boss Lampard.
Despite the tough start, and turning his form around, the 32-year-old has been rewarded with an international call-up for the Republic of Ireland for their fixtures next month against Poland and Northern Ireland.

On the transfer front, Derby have confirmed that Kellan Goron has moved to Lincoln City on loan until January.

The 20-year-old midfielder is eligible to play in the EFL Cup for his new temporary side and joins the League Two side who are currently sat atop the summit of the division.
And finally, away from the pitch, injured defender Curtis Davies shared a heartwarming anecdote on Twitter after meeting a young fan after running a few errands.
Came out of a post office in Derby and a kid in a #DCFC kit was staring at me. I’m thinking he’s going to ask for a pic but said “excuse me…does anyone say you look like Rashford!?” ???? broke his (and my) heart that I had to tell him I play for his team and who I am???????? #WhoAreYa

The 33-year-old is currently out with a hamstring injury and has not featured for his club since the opening day.
While recovering from the injury, Davies could always work as a Marcus Rashford double to pass the time!
