Derby County

Exclusive: Stephen Warnock discusses the importance of returning Derby ace to side

Derby County kicked off the run-in in fine style at the weekend as they brushed aside Rotherham United 6-1.

The Rams have struggled to put some form together of late but that win could well get them back on track at the perfect time.

Mason Mount made a goal-scoring return to the side, too, so we caught up with EFL on Quest pundit Stephen Warnock to discuss his thoughts on the attacking midfielder whether he’d be the difference in the coming weeks.

He told us exclusively…

“Possibly.

“His form hasn’t been as great since he got the call-up to England and then with his injuries.

“It’s tough playing in the Championship week in, week out. He played in Holland last season obviously but that’s not as physically demanding. The games aren’t as thick as fast.

“Derby would have probably know that there would have been a bit of a glitch at some point.

“But he’s certainly a player if they can get him back up to speed quickly and fully fit that could be a match-winner. The relationship that he and Harry Wilson have on the pitch is vital and you can see his form had dropped without Mount around.

“Now he’s back, there’s every chance he could be the difference.”
