Derby County striker Steve Davies continued his comeback from a fractured skull by playing the full 90 minutes of a Derbyshire Cup clash.
The 24-year-old needed a five-hour operation to insert 10 metal plates held together by 22 screws after a clash of heads against Southampton in October.
The former Tranmere forward wore a protective mask as he made his first appearance since the injury in a 4-0 win for the Rams against Midlands League side Pinxton on Wednesday.
Midfielder Jeff Hendrick also played more than an hour as he stepped up his recovery from an ankle injury that has forced him to miss the last five games.
Chris Maguire hit a hat-trick while Ben Davies grabbed another at non-league Belper Town's Christchurch Meadow ground as County comfortably progressed to the semi-finals.
