Harry Wilson finally got off the mark for Derby County on Saturday as his temporary employers beat Brentford 3-1.
The Welshman has only managed four league appearances for the Rams since joining the club from Liverpool in the summer in search of regular senior football.
Derby’s win at the weekend marked only Wilson’s second appearance and first start since missing five Championship fixtures due to an injury picked up in August.
A bright impression upon his return to the starting eleven included a first goal for the club as he finished off a swift counterattacking move.
Wilson unleashed the run of Craig Bryson from the halfway line, before continuing his own burst to calmly slot home the return pass from his teammate.
Wilson showcased his value when given an extended run of games when he scored seven goals and supplied four assists in 14 appearances for Hull City over the second half of last season.
Besides grabbing his debut goal, the 21-year-old impressed throughout with his energy as an attacking outlet alongside fellow loanee Mason Mount.
In other big news regarding a Liverpool loan star, Marko Grujic was forced off after 72 minutes for Hertha Berlin after suffering ligament damage in his ankle.
Next up for Wilson could be an opportunity to face Manchester United when Derby travel to Old Trafford for Tuesday’s League Cup clash.
