Saturday round-up (1/10/22) - Rams win, Spireites beaten, Bucks through
Derby County got life under new boss Paul Warne off to a perfect start as they won 2-0 at Cambridge United on Saturday.
James Collins scored both Rams goals, one in each half, to secure what was also Derby's first away win of the campaign.
The opener came on the stroke of half-time as a mistake from Zeno Ibsen Rossi allowed Collins to go one-on-one with the keeper and the Rams man finished expertly into the bottom left corner.
The second came seven minutes from time when Max Bird found Collins down the left and he was able to fire low into the net to complete the win.
