Tom Ince scored a hat-trick as Derby beat Bristol City.

Tom Ince delivered his best performance in a Derby County shirt as he struck a hat-trick to fire the Rams to victory over Bristol City.

The winger had seven shots at goal during the contest, with three on target - and all three found the back of the net.

His performance was a sign that he is ready to really start building on his potential, and help Derby's promotion campaign.

Ince doubled his tally for the season thanks to his hat-trick, finding the net for the first time since scoring against Brentford on October 3.

It was the first hat-trick scored by a Derby player since Craig Bryson's treble against Nottingham Forest in 2014.

Ince, 23, signed permanently at Derby this summer after a loan spell last season, and could be a transfer which comes back to haunt promotion rivals Hull City who sold him.

Derby remain in the hunt for the automatic promotion places, three points ahead of fourth placed Hull, and two behind Middlesbrough and Brighton and Hove Albion, in first and second place locked together on points.
