DERBY County came from behind to beat nine-man Huddersfield Town at the iPro Stadium today and maintain their Championship promotion push.

The Rams fell behind to Nahki Wells' 14th-minute strike but Johnny Russell equalised after 28 minutes.

Huddersfield then had defender Joel Lynch sent off for a second bookable offence just before the break.

And Derby took the lead five minutes into the second half when Craig Forsyth's cross was helped in by keeper Alex Smithies.

Visiting skipper Peter Clarke was dismissed for his second yellow card, and Chris Martin converted the resulting penalty.

Second-placed Burnley's defeat at Middlesbrough means automatic promotion is still possible, if improbable, but more importantly, the Rams are potentially one win from guaranteeing a play-off spot.
