Derby County maintained their promotion charge under Frank Lampard as they dispatched Sheffield Wednesday at Hillsborough yesterday.
Two quickfire goals courtesy of Jack Marriott and Harry Wilson were enough to overcome an Adam Reach goal for the home side, who remain in deep trouble and without a win in six under Jos Luhukay.
One of the key moments in the game came at half time when Frank Lampard introduced experienced defender Curtis Davies into the fray to shore up the backline, and it paid dividends, as the Rams ground out the result in Sheffield.
Davies has long been a key man for Derby, and he took to Twitter following the game to share his thoughts on the game and performance in general.
Good win in the end today! Had to grind it out after going behind, but in this league you take wins however they come.
Happy to get on the pitch, albeit as a sub and help weather the storm towards the end!
Great travelling support as always ???????? #DCFC #DCFCFans ???? pic.twitter.com/8VJDCxcSrn

The former Hull City man will feel he has a key role to play over the course of the rest of the season, and he will have been delighted to have gotten some minutes under his belt yesterday.
The Rams fans are clearly happy with their man too, and we’ve taken a look at just what Derby fans had to say in response to their big defender…
And you didn't need your Rammie outfit! Well played, Curtis.

Thought you were very good Curtis and helped to tighten us up at the back. Hope you get the start Wednesday as we need to keep a few more clean sheets and stop conceding soft goals.
