New Derby County defender Scott Malone: My Huddersfield shot well worth it

Scott Malone featured 22 times in the Premier League for Huddersfield last season

Derby County and Leeds United go head-to-head in Saturday's late kick-off, as Frank Lampard takes charge of his first home game.

Leeds got back in front through Kemar Roofer, scoring a looping header not all that dissimilar to Lawrence's winning goal for Derby last weekend.

Lampard's first game in charge of Derby had been less impressive as they scraped a last-gasp victor at Reading.

The visitors only held the lead for seven minutes as Derby levelled with a goal that will give Leeds keeper Bailey Peacock-Farrell nightmares.

When Tom Lawrence's free-kick was badly misjudged by 21-year-old goalkeeper Bailey Peacock-Farrell the Rams were swiftly level, but Ezgjan Alioski's flawless left-wing cross was headed in by Kemar Roofe to restore the Leeds lead. While the defenders stood off him the Polish midfielder calmly picked his spot and curled a shot beyond the reach of Scott Carson for his second goal in two games this season.

Ings completed a complicated switch to St Mary's after the club's agreed the structure of payments ahead of the close of business. Pedro Chirivella, Lazar Markovic, Divock Origi and Simon Mignolet could also leave in the next three weeks.

There was nothing the former England worldwide could do about Roofe's second goal, though, the striker collecting a Klich pass and brilliantly spinning away from two defenders to thunder in a powerful drive that beat Carson at his near post. They are a good team, had more energy with the ball and without it so lots of lessons for us really.

Derby started the second half by creating a glorious chance and once again they spurned it. Wilson was again the provider playing a delightful ball that released Mount who screwed his shot past Peacock-Farrell and wide of the post when he should have done better.

Lampard will be hoping to make it 11 wins over their rivals, as The Rams look to start their Championship campaign with back-to-back victories for the first time since 2011.

"I have spoken before about it being important to have options across all areas and Scott provides another one for us, but I think it's also important to mention that Max Lowe has been fantastic in the games so far", Lampard added.
