Derby County

Frank Lampard highlights importance of Derby County pair



Derby County manager Frank Lampard has admitted that he sees both Richard Keogh and Curtis Davies as the club’s captains.

The comment arose as the Rams boss discussed Davies’ return from injury with the club’s Twitter, describing him as “fantastic.”

33-year-old Davies made the move to Derby from Hull City last summer and since then has gone on to make over 50 appearances.

He picked up an injury in the opening game of the season against Reading, which kept him out of the next ten league matches before finally returning to the starting line-up against Birmingham City last weekend.

The Rams currently sit in fifth place in the Championship table and on 28 points with 16 matches played, leaving them just two points off table-toppers, Leeds United.

Lampard and co. welcome Dean Smith’s Aston Villa to Pride Park on Saturday as they look to consolidate that top-six spot.

The Verdict 

Lampard is absolutely spot on with these comments.

Keogh has been brilliant at the back throughout the whole season for the Rams alongside young loanee, Fikayo Tomori, but he would be stupid to ignore club captain Davies as well.

In what is a very young and exciting squad, the experience of the defensive pair could be absolutely crucial in steering the side in the right direction.
