Derby County fans have criticised Tom Lawrence, despite their victory on penalties against Southampton.

Derby managed to come back from 2-0 down at St. Mary’s last night, to take the game to spot kicks.

But Lawrence could have won the match for Derby in normal time had he been more accurate with his finishing.

The Welsh international had two glorious headed chances, but he missed them both.

And Derby supporters felt that Lawrence’s display was short of the standard required to play for Frank Lampard’s side.

Lawrence has hit five goals in 24 appearances for Derby across all competitions so far this season.

The 25-year-old has been given regular starts by Lampard, but he may need to start being more productive in the final third to ensure he retains his place in Derby’s line-up.

The Rams are next in action at the weekend when they take on Reading at Pride Park.
