Rooney played the full 90 minutes in a match of few clear-cut chances, with the visitors registering just one shot on target as Famara Diedhiou scored the winner on 78 minutes. 

Rooney has temporarily taken charge at Derby alongside Liam Rosenior, Shay Given and the club’s former youth coach Justin Walker following the sacking of Philip Cocu last Saturday.
