LG PERFORMANCE OF THE WEEK: RAMS BOOK A PLACE IN THE PLAY-OFFS
The League Managers Association’s panel, comprising LMA Chairman Howard Wilkinson, Sir Alex Ferguson, Joe Royle and Dave Bassett, has determined that the LG Performance of the Week Award should go to Derby County 3-1 victory against West Brom on Sunday 5th May 2019.
The experienced and highly distinguished panel has managed a combined total of over 5,500 competitive matches in professional football.

Derby County booked the play-offs with a 3-1 victory over West Bromwich Albion in the final game of the season.
Martyn Waghorn opened the scoring in the first-half, powering home from Jayden Bogle’s cross. The pressure was then on as West Brom equalised minutes after the restart through Stefan Johansen to drop the Rams to seventh in the table.
Derby refused to give up and two goals in three minutes ensured their season was extended. Mason Bennett smashed in the second-chance shot before Harry Wilson slotted in from the penalty spot to confirm their place.
The Rams will now face Leeds United in the Play-Off Semi-Finals.
