Rams beat Fleetwood to go equal on points with third

In Charlie Adam’s inaugural home game in charge of Fleetwood Town, Derby County secured a victory over their opponents, propelling them to an equal point standing with third-placed Peterborough. Nathaniel Mendez-Laing initiated the scoring with a composed finish into the bottom corner, followed by James Collins’ flicked header in injury time of the first half, extending Derby’s lead.

Fleetwood’s Jayden Stockley narrowed the margin with a well-directed header in the 76th minute. A 90th-minute tap-in by substitute Tom Barkhuizen sealed Derby’s triumph against League One’s bottom team. Despite the win, Derby couldn’t surpass Peterborough in goal difference, remaining two points shy of automatic promotion and four behind league leaders Portsmouth.
