The Rams sneaked past Accrington Stanley in the early kick off to join Manchester United in the next round of the cup.
It was a scrappy game littered with fouls and misplaced passes but the woeful playing surface at the Wham Stadium didn’t help.
A second half prod home from Martyn Waghorn settled the game after great work from Holmes but there was plenty of scares late on.
It was a relitavely strong lineup from Lampard but there was a few cameos from the academy kids.
Check out my ratings for the game below:
Roos – 7 – Made some vital saves especially towards the end of the game.
Bogle – 8 – Best I’ve seen him play. Constant threat going forward.
Keogh – 7 – Never mentioned when he doesn’t make a mistake but good today
Tomori – 7 – Showed he can do the grafting side of the game this afternoon.
Malone – 8 – Attacked very well first half.
Mount – 6 – Injured early. Let’s hope nothing serious.
Wilson – 6 – Worked hard but always going to struggle on that pitch against that team
Holmes – 8 – Excelled again. Setup the goal.
Evans – 7 – Slowly becoming impressed with this guy
Waghorn – 7 – Scored the goal and battled well
Nugent – 7 – First time he’s played well for a while. Held ball up well but no clear sign of goal.
Bennett – 7 – Direct and made a difference
Jozefzoon – 5 – booked
Bird – 5 – Not enough time to judge
