Keogh In Team Of The Week (19/12/17)
Derby County are represented in the latest Football League team of the week that has been selected after this week's action.
The performance by Richard Keogh in the two nil victory over Aston Villa at the weekend at the iPro Stadium was enough to earn them a place in the side alongside the other most impressive performers in the Football League pyramid.
I think we'll already know ourselves, and not just based on the latest performance, why Keogh was selected as part of the team but explaining the choice - the FL blurb read.
'At Pride Park, the Rams saw off fellow play-off occupants Aston Villa, in what was an impressive all-round display. Things could have been all so different if Keogh hadn`t have cleared Robert Snodgrass` goalbound effort off the line with the score at 1-0. Besides that crucial intervention, the skipper`s performance was outstanding, and County duly prevented Villa from making a breakthrough.'
It's always good to see the club represented in this way, and well played to Keogh for his recognition, but the most important thing about the weekend was of course the win.
