The former England captain scored for his new team in their 4-2 win over the League Two opposition in a replay.

Andre Wisdom and Duane Holmes gave Derby a 2-0 lead before the half, but Northampton hit back shortly after the restart to halve the deficit.

However the hosts scored twice after the Northampton goal before the visitors scored a consolation from the penalty spot to reach the final scoreline.

The result means second-tier Derby advanced to a home game against Man United (streaming live on March 3 on ESPN+), where Rooney spent 13 years and became the club's all-time top scorer while winning five Premier League titles, the Champions League in 2008 and the FA Cup in 2016.
