‘Exceptional’, ‘What a player’ – Many Derby County fans heap praise on one man after Reading victory



Derby County made it two wins in two since the Championship restart with a 2-1 victory over Reading today and many Rams fans have hailed the performance of Andre Wisdom.

A quickfire double from Tom Lawrence and Wayne Rooney just before the half put Phillip Cocu’s side in the driving seat at Pride Park and the hosts held on to secure all three points, despite Andy Rinomhota pulling a goal back in the second half.

Derby are now three points back from the play-offs and have the best record in the Championship since the start of the year, having won 27 points from 14 games.

Lawrence produced a fine strike to give the Rams the lead against Reading but his chance was set up by a surging run from Wisdom, who produced another impressive display at centre-back.

It appears the 27-year-old had more license to get forward against the Royals as he pushed into the final third on a number of occasions and caused issues for the opposition backline.
