Derby County 3-1 Brentford: Rams come from behind to end Brentford's unbeaten run

Harry Wilson slots home Derby County's equaliser
Wales winger Harry Wilson's goal was his first for Derby since signing on loan from Liverpool

Derby recovered to beat Brentford in the Championship after falling behind to Henrik Dalsgaard's first-minute goal.

Dalsgaard gave the Bees the lead after just 44 seconds when he headed in Said Benrahma's corner, but Harry Wilson slotted in to level after a quick counter-attack.

David Nugent lobbed Dan Bentley from 20 yards to put the Rams ahead and Mason Mount's free-kick extended the lead.

Both sides struggled to create clear chances after the break, Wilson going closest as he chipped narrowly wide.

Kamo Mokotjo's 25-yard effort was the nearest Brentford came to scoring late on, curling his shot just over Scott Carson's goal.

The Bees dropped down to seventh in the table after a first defeat in five games in all competitions.

Derby climbed to sixth, helped by another strong outing for Chelsea loanee Mason Mount, 19, who was watched by England boss Gareth Southgate against Blackburn on Tuesday.

The Rams also extended their unbeaten run in home league games against Brentford to 10, a streak dating back to February 1939.

Derby manager Frank Lampard told BBC Radio Derby:

"Accepting the fact that we went 1-0 down after a minute, in terms of the reaction, it's right up there and possibly the best.

"I'm forever striving for more and there will be better ones to come hopefully."

Brentford manager Dean Smith:

"It was a really good start but the manner of the goals we conceded disappointed me.

"But I don't want to take any credit away from Derby. In the second half I thought we controlled the ball.

"The manner of the goals disappointed me. The second was a ball over the top and the third was a pathetic decision to give the free-kick."
