Rams earn first victory in Group C to keep qualifying hopes alive

Derby County scored three times in the second half to beat Manchester City 3-1 at the AJ Bell Stadium in Premier League Cup Group C.

City took a first-half lead through substitute Joe Hardy but Kellan Gordon equalised in the 55th minute and further strikes from Emil Riis Jakobsen and Mason Bennett (pictured above), from the penalty spot, secured the Rams' first win of the competition.

Colchester United, on seven points, lead the way in the group, followed by Hull City, on six, having only played three matches each. Derby are third on four points, one ahead of City.

The top two teams in each group progress to the last 16.
