Derby County manager Frank Lampard has warned his players not to get carried away after their impressive victory over West Bromwich Albion on Wednesday night.
The Rams defeated West Brom 4-1 at the Hawthorns courtesy of goals from Jack Marriott, Tom Lawrence, Harry Wilson and Scott Malone, to win their second game on the bounce after their weekend victory over Sheffield United.
The victory over West Brom gave Lampard his biggest win as a manager but the former Chelsea midfielder insists his focus is on continuing the good form against Middlesbrough at the Riverside on Saturday.
“Tonight was one of those nice nights when everything was relatively comfortable for us,” he said, according to Sky Sports.
“We’ve got two big games coming up. This week on paper has been hugely tough for us but we can’t relax.”
“We must have an extremely strong mindset, game after game. We look forward to them, but we must be ready.
“Personally, there are aspects of our game that I’d like to be better. I think we realised early in the game that there were times that the ball turned over and we could break very quickly.”
“There were times when we didn’t break as clinically as we could’ve done. I’m not a fool and of course we’re going to be happy with a 4-1 win away to West Brom, but there are certainly things to improve.
