Derby County net three second-half goals to run out convincing 3-0 victors over Premier League side Southampton.

Two goals from Tom Lawrence have helped Derby County to a convincing 3-0 victory over Southampton in Saturday's fixture at Pride Park.

The first opportunity of the afternoon went the way of the home side, but Craig Bryson was denied as Alex McCarthy got down low to smother the ball at the feet of the midfielder.

Nathan Redmond tried his luck from distance towards the end of the first half after Charlie Austin had seen an effort blocked by Richard Keogh, but the winger's curler went off target.

Both teams were creating opportunities in what was a relatively open game of football, with Southampton summer signing Mohamed Elyounoussi nearly getting on the scoresheet after strong play from James Ward-Prowse down the right flank.

After the break, fellow new arrival Jannik Vestergaard almost benefited from the creativity of Ward-Prowse as the Danish centre-back headed straight at Scott Carson from eight yards out.

That let-off was soon capitalised on by Derby, as Lawrence opened the scoring for the Rams after being played through on goal before slotting the ball past McCarthy.

The East Midlands outfit doubled their lead with 19 minutes remaining as Lawrence found the back of the net for the second time, with a low shot being directed into the bottom corner of the net after a direct run.

Frank Lampard's side were continuing to show a desire to score further goals, and the third arrived thanks to Mason Bennett, who tapped home from close range after debutant Florian Jozefzoon had seen a shot parried by McCarthy.

DERBY COUNTY: Carson (Roos 72'), Wisdom (Bogle 72'), Davies (Pearce 72'), Keogh (Hanson 77'), Lowe (Bird 69'), Bryson (Johnson 72'), Ledley (Huddlestone 63'), Mount (Butterfield 77'), Lawrence (Thomas 72'), Nugent (Bennett 72'), Wilson (Jozefzoon 63'),

SOUTHAMPTON: McCarthy, Stephens (Clasie 80'), Hoedt, Targett (Vestergaard 46'), Bertrand (McQueen 80'), Lemina (Gallagher 80'), Ward-Prowse (Hojbjerg 63'), Armstrong (Romeu 63'), Redmond (Reed 63'), Elyounoussi (Davis 46'), Austin (Gabbiadini 63')
