Result: Derby County overcome Burton Albion test in final pre-season clash

Goals from Darren Bent, Andreas Weimann and Johnny Russell guide Derby County to a 3-1 victory over Burton Albion in their final pre-season match.

Derby County ended their pre-season campaign on a high note courtesy of a 3-1 victory over Burton Albion this afternoon.

The Rams started brightly and took the lead in the 11th minute when George Thorne won the ball in the middle of the park and threaded a pass through for Darren Bent, who fired his effort into the net.

Bent almost notched his second goal of the game when Cyrus Christie knocked the ball into his path down the right and the striker drilled a low strike at the net, which was well blocked.

Derby did double their lead in the 29th minute when Johnny Russell raided forward and laid the ball into the path of Andreas Weimann, who found the net with a low strike into the bottom corner.

Abdenasser El Khayati almost got a goal back for Burton when he drilled a volley at goal from distance, but Scott Carson made the save.

The Rams pressed forward again and came close to adding to the scoreline through Tom Ince and Weimann, but both players were denied by Remi Matthews.

In the second half, Albion did reduce the deficit when Anthony O'Connor's header hit the bar and Timmy Thiele reacted to the loose ball to fire it past Carson from close range.

Jerome Binnom-Williams almost found an equaliser when he raided through into the box, but he lost his composure at the vital moment, blazing his effort over the bar from 12 yards.

Derby secured their victory as Russell latched on to a shot at goal from Jeff Hendrick and placed his effort past Matthews.
