James Collins scored his 200th goal in club football as he fired Derby to a first away league win at Carlisle since 1957.

The Republic of Ireland international opened the scoring after 18 minutes and wrapped up a 2-0 win for Paul Warne’s men with an 84th-minute penalty at Brunton Park.

Potent striker Collins scored for the second league game in a row as he powered home from Nathaniel Mendez-Laing’s cut back.

After the goal, Collins was full of confidence and fired over just moments later.

County goalkeeper Joe Wildsmith was reprieved by the crossbar after he fumbled Jordan Gibson’s dipping strike.

Crystal Palace loanee Luke Plange, who opened his Cumbrians’ account last weekend, fired against a post in first-half stoppage time.

Eiran Cashin nodded wide at the back post on the hour as the visitors chased a second.

And the goal came with six minutes left to wrap up Derby’s third away league win of the season

Collins beat Jokull Andresson to the ball and earned a penalty when he was bundled over by the goalkeeper, and he duly stepped up and rifled home from 12 yards.
