The Rams did it the hard way yet again after falling behind early in the first half of this tie. The Rams according to local radio reports were dire in the first half.
Paul Jewell seemed to do the trick at half time and Derby were level after two minutes of the second period, with Kenny Miller again bringing the teams level.
