Irish international Richard Keogh had a night to forget for Derby County tonight as his side slumped to a 4-1 loss to promotion rivals Burnley in the Championship.

Keogh scored an own-goal and conceded a penalty as Burnley moved from fifth to third in the table, but Derby drop a spot to fifth.

Jacob Butterfield cancelled out the early own goal, but Burnley dominated the second-half as Andre Gray's penalty was followed by further goals from Sam Vokes and Scott Arfield.

The result was another boost to Burnley's Ireland full-back Stephen Ward.

The club haven't lost in the league since the ex-Bohemians and Wolves defenders' return to their starting side.
