Derby coach Andy Garner felt his side had benefited from the international break as they returned to action with a 3-0 home win over Bristol City.

Tom Heaton: City keeper punches clear as Derby attack

The Rams recorded successive Championship wins for the first time since mid-December - when they beat the Robins 2-0 at Ashton Gate - thanks to goals from Jeff Hendrick, Jamie Ward and Ben Davies.

Asked if the break came at just the right time, Garner said: "Perhaps that could be fair to say.

"The players had a chance to recharge their batteries and they have produced a good performance. I thought we were superb from start to finish.

"I thought the first 20 minutes were particularly good. We could have been three in front in the first 20 minutes.

"When they don't go in though you start to think, 'Is it going to be one of those nights?'.

"But I think perhaps it (the timing of the break) might have been more relevant for us with a squad like ours, where a lot of the same players pretty much play week in, week out.

"In contrast now, it is a quick turnaround for the trip to Leeds on Monday."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
