Fightback keeps Lampard’s Derby in playoff hunt


London (AFP) – A flash of brilliance from Mason Bennett revived Derby’s playoff hopes as they came from behind to beat Wigan 2-1 at Pride Park on Tuesday.

The visitors had led through Gavin Massey’s first-half breakaway goal but Bennett’s acrobatic finish turned the game, with Scott Malone providing the winner that ended a run of four defeats for Frank Lampard’s men.

Malone had provided the cross which set up Bennett as the left-back went from villain to hero after his mistake led to Wigan’s goal.

He also cleared a Nick Powell header off the line and Wigan could count themselves unlucky to see their five match unbeaten run come to an end.

However, a much-needed win for the Rams puts them level on points with Bristol City in the sixth and final playoff position.
