Manager Frank Lampard praised his goalscoring duo following last night’s Emirates FA Cup Third Round replay victory against Southampton.
After the Saints took a two-goal lead with only 20 minutes remaining, the Rams did not let their heads drop - and they fought back to get back level at 2-2.
The returning Harry Wilson got Lampard’s side back into the tie with a trademark free-kick, whilst five minutes later he provided the assist for Martyn Waghorn to equalise and send the game into extra time.
“Harry was good,” Lampard told RamsTV. “It’s not easy to come in after a couple of weeks out injured but he is so hungry, he is desperate to play and desperate to affect games.
“He certainly did that. It was another very good free-kick, we know what he has got there. He works on his technique, we were working with him on that yesterday and that is credit to him.
“The cross was absolutely on a sixpence for Martyn Waghorn to score the equaliser, so those were two big contributions for him.
“I think Waggy needs a bit of credit too for his overall performance because he had some really classy touches, worked all the way through the game and got the equaliser. That’s what it is all about.”
Spot kicks followed extra time and five perfect penalties ensured Lampard’s side claimed another cup scalp as they ran out 5-3 winners.
The win set up a Fourth Round clash against Sky Bet League One side Accrington Stanley next Saturday - but the manager doesn’t want to look too far ahead.
“They are in the league below us and doing well. Let’s not make any bones, it could be a very tough draw for us away from home,” he said.
“We should just enjoy it for a moment, massively think about Reading on Saturday because that is a two day recovery now and will be very difficult after that and we will try and go again. The league becomes a major importance now.
“We will recover completely. We won’t do much now to get ready for that. It is a big game and Reading are on good form, albeit they have been struggling in league position but they played very well at Manchester United in the FA Cup, despite losing, and beat Nottingham Forest last week.
“Let’s not underestimate them or this game. It will be very tough anyway, let alone after tonight. We will try our best to recover and we want to get going in the league.”
