Derby County fans have praised Tom Lawrence’s display against Mansfield Town yesterday.
Derby were beaten 3-1 by Mansfield yesterday, as Frank Lampard’s side struggled in their pre-season friendly.
But Lawrence’s display did catch the eye, with the attacking midfielder featuring for over an hour.
Lawrence looking very sharp. Shackles off this season I feel. Big player. #dcfc— Ben W (@iamzavagno) July 18, 2018
Been impressed with Lawrence so far this preseason, he looks madferrit— Tommy Powell (@DCFCLampard8) July 18, 2018
Good workout. Mansfield played well. Thomas/Lawrence bright. Nugent missed a sitter. #dcfc— Richard Cusack (@RichardCusackBM) July 18, 2018
First half was good without end product, could easily have been 2 up at least at the. Lawrence looked really good. Second half we looked uncomfortable on the ball from the off and you cou,d see us gifting a goal. No cause for alarm. #dcfc— Chris Smith (@cspaceram) July 18, 2018

HT thoughts: Jerome Hanson Ledley, Davies everyone else a big especially Wisdom and Lawrence!— Daniel (@JamesDanielDCFC) July 18, 2018
Lawrence was brought to Derby last term, and didn’t quite have the influence many were expecting.
Although Lawrence did show flashes of quality, he never consistently became one of the top attackers in the Championship, as many had predicted.
Lampard will be hoping to bring the best out of Lawrence this season, who could form part of a seriously exciting Derby front line.
With Mason Mount and Harry Wilson added, Derby have some great creative options, and if Lawrence hits form, then they are sure to be a threat to defences across the division.
