Mason Mount can use much-needed goal to help fire Derby to promotion

Derby County midfielder Mason Mount finally ended his goal scoring drought by netting against Norwich City.

The youngster got off to a flyer this season, scoring on his debut and then netting five goals in his first 11 games.

But Mount then went 15 games without a goal, which would have concerned Derby fans.

Frank Lampard kept faith with Mount, who was still performing well despite his lack of end product.

And that might just have paid off as the 19-year-old got his name back on the score sheet in a roller-coaster 4-3 victory over Norwich.

Despite being just a teenager, he has already established himself as a key player at Derby and if he can bring goals back into his game, then the Rams are a team to be feared.

Derby are currently sixth, six points off the automatic promotion spots, and Mount has the talent to spearhead their promotion bid.

Alongside the likes of Harry Wilson and Jack Marriott, Derby will not be short of goals if all three are in form.

Derby fans will now be hoping that Mount takes the confidence from the goal into the coming games.

The England under-21 international could be the man to lead them back to the Premier League.
