Harry Wilson scores again to help Derby into Championship play-off final

16 May 2019

Liverpool’s on-loan winger Harry Wilson scored his 16th league goal of the season on Wednesday night to send Derby to Wembley and the Championship play-off final.

The Welshman has enjoyed a prolific campaign, mixing set-piece prowess with some long-distance stunners for the Rams.

Heading to Leeds United for the semi-final second leg 1-0 down, Wilson and his team-mates had it all to do to keep their promotion dream alive—but despite falling behind early on, it was Derby who triumphed.

A 4-2 win on the night was enough to progress 4-3 on aggregate, with Wilson key to the turnaround.

He first claimed an assist for Mason Mount to make it 2-1, before netting Derby’s third on the night himself from the penalty spot.

It’s now 18 goals for the season for Wilson in what has been a hugely productive loan spell, which will have seen both his self-confidence and his price tag rise significantly.

The 22-year-old has remained consistent in his message that he hopes to return to Liverpool for next season and play a part in the first team, meaning he’ll need a big pre-season to impress Jurgen Klopp.

Just like the Reds, Wilson now has one final game left: a final, in his case that of the Championship play-offs.

Derby will face Aston Villa at Wembley on Monday, 27 May, to see who joins Norwich City and Sheffield United as new Premier League teams next season.
