Tom Lawrence sends message to Derby County fans amid positive run

Published

on

Derby County have kept their survival hopes alive by picking up ten points in their last four games as they push for the greatest of all escapes from relegation.

The appetite for the fight within the camp cannot be underestimated and the Rams demonstrated their never say die attitude in coming back to rescue a point at Reading on Monday despite being 2-0 down going into the 86th minute.

There have been a lot of murmurings that the club will have to cash in on their saleable assets in the playing squad this month to aid their financial situation off the pitch, but it is a credit to Wayne Rooney that that has not affected the performances and motivation in the squad.

Captain Tom Lawrence took to Instagram to express his emotions after the dramatic draw at the Select Car Leasing Stadium.

He wrote: “Spirit. To see that away end erupt at the end is what football is all about. We will keep giving our all each week.”


Lawrence has been Derby’s most consistent attacking player this season but it has been his supporting cast that have chipped in during the last four games. The emergence of Luke Plange and re-emergence of Colin Kazim-Richards as a second tier goal threat give Rooney plenty of options moving forward.

Darren Bent?

Every single player in the Derby squad has increased their standing as a Championship level player this season. Though Rooney is the main man in the dugout, as captain Lawrence deserves credit for that, he has spoke very well in extremely trying circumstances and if he is to depart this month, he would leave with the best wishes of the Rams faithful.

The recent run has come at the best possible time for Derby, giving them a chance of survival before potentially losing some players but also provided a motive to remain at the club until the end of the season, with the opportunity to make history. The point at Reading was hugely significant and if the Rams can reduce the gap to safety to single figures in the coming weeks, football fans everywhere will start believing in the impossible.
