Harry Wilson was delighted to get back on the scoresheet with his brace against Brentford but he was disappointed to leave Griffin Park with just a point.
The Welshman opened and closed the scoring for the Rams, either side of youngster Jayden Bogle’s first professional goal.
However, each time the Rams took the lead, the Bees found a way to cancel that out in the 3-3 draw.
Taking the momentum from last week’s 6-1 victory over Rotherham, Frank Lampard’s side put on another good display as they fight to return to the top-six in the Sky Bet Championship and Wilson felt short-changed after not leaving with three points.
“We started well, I felt we pressed them high up the pitch and won the ball back a few times,” Wilson said when spekaing to RamsTV.
“I was able to get the first goal and I thought we deserved that. We were a bit disappointed to concede from the corner because we take pride in defending set pieces well.
“We managed to get another goal through a great finish by Bogle to put us 2-1 up, then we conceded again and going in at half-time level was disappointing.”
He continued: “In the second half, to be fair to Brentford, they came out really well and had us under pressure, but I think we showed a lot of character to get through that tough spell.
“Fikayo Tomori played a great ball through to me and I managed to put it away. At that point we were doing well and it is disappointing to then concede again and only get a point.”
Wilson’s two goals extended his lead as the club’s top scorer, taking his tally to 14, but the attacker heaped praise on young full-back, Bogle, for his coolly taken effort.
The 18-year-old is a regular visitor to oppositions’ boxes, creating an abundance of chances in his first season in the first-team with five assists, but his goal to regain Derby’s lead was his first senior strike.
“He gets a lot of stick of the lads because he does get a few chances and he has been unlucky not to score already this season,” Wilson said.
“But he keeps getting himself into those positions as an attacking full-back or wing-back. He deserved his goal today.”
He added: “It has been a while without one for me. I have been on myself recently, I think from the turn of the year I only had one and was desperate to get on the scoresheet and assist a few more as well. As long as the team is winning, I am happy.”
The 21-year-old on-loan Liverpool player explained that the team can take confidence in the fact the all three Derby goals were well worked and of the character they showed each time the Bees levelled the score.
Wilson hopes Derby can take those positives and build on two good performances following the international break into the midweek trip to Blackburn Rovers.
He said: “I thought Jayden Bogle’s goal was a great finish, my second one Fik played a great ball through to me and my first I think we pressed it well up the pitch to give me the opportunity to score.
“If you come away from home and you manage to get yourself in the lead you have got to do all you can to keep that lead and we were unable to do that today.
“A point at a tough place like this, maybe isn’t the worst result. We will go to Blackburn on Tuesday to hopefully get the three.
“When you are in a good patch like we are – we had a good result last week then come here and got a decent enough result – we are raring to get back on it on Tuesday.”
