Wayne Rooney free-kick helps secure Derby county win

Wayne Rooney scored a stunning free-kick on Wednesday to move Derby just one point below a play-off position, as the club chase down a promotion spot to the Premier league. His free-kick goal secured another win for The Rams, as they beat Preston 1-0 at Deepdale to secure their fifth consecutive Championship win.

Wayne Rooney who is already 36-years-old is currently showing no signs of slowing down any time soon, as he still clearly has the technical skill to play at the highest level. Rooney can do it all, from curling in wicked free-kicks, to lethal finishing, as well as pin-point passing, he is simply too good for his age.

Phillip Cocu’s men are on a five match winning rampage in the Championships, and have not dropped as much as one point in their last five games. This win has tightened their claim for a promotion spot, as they are now just one point behind Cardiff City in sixth place.

Preston North End, who were previously in seventh position, have now slid further down the table after losing to Derby County. They now find themselves four points below the play-off spot, following their most recent defeat in a six-game winless run.

Preston North End’s starting line-up included five changes in personnel from the 3-1 loss away to Cardiff last Saturday, with ex-Derby player David Nugent among those included in the team.
