Southampton 2-2 Derby

After extra-time, Derby win 5-3 on penalties

FRANK LAMPARD was full of pride last night after his Derby players again hit back from two goals down against Southampton before winning their FA Cup replay on penalties.

Nathan Redmond’s missed penalty – the only player not to convert in the shoot-out – proved the difference in the end as top-flight Southampton were knocked out by the Championship promotion-chasers.

Skipper Richard Keogh confirmed the win by nervelessly netting the clinching spot-kick. Lampard said: ‘The FA Cup is magical, to do that makes me proud. You have to be proud when your team plays like that against a Premier League team. I thought we were outstanding.’

Earlier, Martyn Waghorn capped a superb Derby comeback as they recovered from two goals down – as they had in the original tie.

Stuart Armstrong and Nathan Redmond had put the Saints in control before Harry Wilson’s free-kick halved the deficit.

Waghorn — who had seen a goal contentiously ruled out for offside by VAR — took the game to extra-time, which failed to separate the teams.

In the fourth round, Lampard will take his team to Accrington Stanley.
