Loan watch: Harry Wilson strikes again for Derby




Harry Wilson continued his rich vein of form for Derby County with another set-piece goal in a 3-1 win over Birmingham City on Saturday.

The on-loan Liverpool winger put Frank Lampard’s team ahead in the game as they came from one down to claim three points that lifted them to fourth in the Championship.

Wilson – who also saw a later free-kick hit the post – beat the goalkeeper from a narrow angle on the right with a low effort aided by a deflection.

“It was on target and the defender stuck his leg out – you make your own luck,” said Lampard.

“We deserved that for how we played in the second half. And Harry hit the post later on. We had numerous chances; it was a comfortable 3-1 in the end, which I wouldn’t have expected to say at half-time.”

The Wales international has now scored four goals in 14 appearances since joining Derby in the summer.

Elsewhere, Loris Karius played the whole game for Besiktas as they were beaten 1-0 by Istanbul Basaksehir in the Turkish Super Lig.

It was the same story for Adam Bogdan in the Scottish Premiership, Hibernian losing to the only goal of the game at home to St. Johnstone.

There was better news in the division for Ovie Ejaria and Ryan Kent, who played 87 and 90 minutes respectively in Rangers’ 2-0 win at St. Mirren.

Ben Woodburn was sent on for the final 10 minutes of Sheffield United’s 1-0 defeat at Nottingham Forest, Herbie Kane was part of the Doncaster Rovers team beaten by Charlton Athletic, and Corey Whelan played the first half for Crewe Alexandra as they lost 2-0 against Northampton Town.
