Burnley 4 Derby 1
In-form Burnley leapfrogged promotion rivals Derby into third place in the Championship table thanks to a well-deserved 4-1 victory, in which Richard Keogh played a key role.
Burnley took a first-half lead when Keogh headed into his own net, as the retreating Keogh could only divert a Matthew Lowton cross past Scott Carson.
Jacob Butterfield immediately replied with a Derby equaliser but Keogh again granted Burnley the lead, clumsily bundling over Andre Gray in the box, with Gray picking himself up to convert his 17th goal of the season.
A second penalty five minutes later, given when defender Jason Shackell handled a cross into the box, allowed Sam Vokes to also score from the spot, before Scott Arfield completed the scoring with a deflected effort.
For the stuttering Rams, the result means they are still without a league win since Boxing Day.
Twitter wasn’t kind to the Irish centre-half, who has been wearing a protective mask since recovering from an operation on his nose, which was broken in three places earlier this month.
4 - No Championship player has scored more own goals since August 2011 than Richard Keogh. Clumsy.— OptaJoe (@OptaJoe) January 25, 2016
1st the stubborn defensive displays, then the headband and now...Richard Keogh is slowly morphing into Richard Dunne https://t.co/Ly4LIfkdRC— Cian Murtagh (@cianmnews) January 25, 2016
Richard Keogh will be hoping Martin O'Neill isn't watching tonight. Own goal in the first half, gives away a clumsy penalty in the second.— David McIntyre (@DaveMcIntyreIRL) January 25, 2016
Imagine your club spending £25m on players, but you still have to watch Richard Keogh play football— Adam west (@Adamwest6) January 25, 2016
