‘Phenomenal’ – Many Derby County fans hail ‘outstanding’ display from midfield ace



A number of Derby County fans have been heaping praise onto Max Bird following his performance for the Rams in their vital 1-0 win against Bristol City on Saturday.

Wayne Rooney’s side headed into the game looking for a third straight win in the Championship to lift themselves further clear of the bottom three. The Rams delivered an assured performance and managed to control the majority of the game with and without the ball against a Bristol City side well in the mix for the play-off places.

One player who was instrumental to the win was Bird, with the midfielder brought back into the side for his tenth start of the campaign in the Championship. The 20-year-old took advantage of his chance to impress and offered a reliable and mature presence in the middle of the park, especially once Krystian Bielik had been withdrawn.
