Manager reaction

Derby 2-2 Watford

Derby manager Steve McClaren told Sky Sports: "We have only ourselves to blame.

"We said at half-time 'let's be ruthless' and go for it. We got the goal and then we stopped. We thought the game was over. We were too negative and not ruthless enough.

"It kind of sums up the last three or four weeks. We are conceding two goals every game and they are poor goals. You can't go into games needing three goals to win and we needed that tonight.

"We have nobody to blame but ourselves for the situation we are in from where we were."

Derby 2-2 Watford

Derby boss Steve McClaren does not seem very happy with his side's defending. I'm not surprised either.

Derby 2-2 Watford

Middlesbrough are the big winners in the Championship today as they finish top of the pile, after moving above both Watford and Bournemouth with a win over Wigan.

Just two points separates the top four though with six games remaining. How's your bottle?

Player reaction

Derby 2-2 Watford

Derby striker Darren Bent, speaking to Sky Sports: "We had the better chances so we're disappointed. I thought we played really well. We know results went against us today but we still believe. There are six games left, and we need to win at least five of them. I'm sure we can get the top two."

Player reaction

"Our aim is to finish top"

Watford's man of the match: Adlene Guedioura: "I think it was unfair with the red card but we had to accept it and try to get back into the game. At half-time everyone in the dressing room was angry with the sending off and we wanted to fight in the second half to get a result.

"It's a big suspense in this Championship but it is our aim to finish on the top.

FULL-TIME

Doncaster 0-3 Bradford

The final whistle goes at the Keepmoat Stadium where Bradford have come away comfortable winners.

Tony McMahon added a third in injury time after goals from Gary MacKenzie and Billy Clarke, with the Bantams are now up to seventh in the table. They're just three points away from the play-off places, while Doncaster stay 12th.

Derby 2-2 Watford

Championship
BBC

Derby may still be in the play-off places but sixth is the lowest they have been since September. A hammer blow for the Rams, who now haven't won in seven.

"You wouldn't begrudge Watford a point from this game, as well as Derby played. They dug in after the sending off and scored a brilliant equaliser through Odion Ighalo, with Adlene Guedioura playing a fantastic pass to find him."

Derby 2-2 Watford

Watford fans are in party mood in the away end. They may not have got the win they needed to move top of the Championship but, 2-1 down and with a man light, they are right to be delighted with the point.

Derby on the other hand... there are a few glum faces around.

FULL-TIME

Derby 2-2 Watford

Watford goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes tips over a header and that is that. A battling point for 10-man Watford and more disappointment for Derby.

Derby 2-2 Watford

Another wasted delivery from Derby and Watford clear. Still the hosts come though but Johnny Russell's cross is cleared. Another corner. Last chance surely?

Derby 2-2 Watford

Corner Derby...

Derby 2-2 Watford

So close. Tom Ince's delicately chipped free-kick causes chaos in the Watford box but the ball is somehow hacked clear.

Derby 2-2 Watford

Tom Ince fouled by Craig Cathcart 25 yards out. Free-kick to Derby a chance. Can they win it?

Derby 2-2 Watford

Derby back in possession and they come forward again...

Derby 2-2 Watford

Another Derby cross wasted as culprit Johnny Russell holds his head in his hands. The home fans don't look too happy either. Now Watford attack...

Derby 2-2 Watford

Into injury time, with six minutes signalled. Still time for some drama. Who is going to provide it?

Derby 2-2 Watford

Ryan Shotton is bandaged up and ready to continue. Looks like Adlene Guedioura will continue as well. Both have to change shirts first though after a losing a bit of claret.

Derby 2-2 Watford

The packed Watford end are enjoying themselves. Probably more than Ryan Shotton and Adlene Guedioura, who hold their bloodied heads after a collision.

CLOSE!

Derby 2-2 Watford

Jeff Hendrick takes advantage of some sloppy defending by Gabriele Angella but his pull back is cleared. It is all Derby now.

"Watford have five minutes left. They'll take a draw from here. Five minutes to survive."

Derby 2-2 Watford

Still Derby come forward but Heurelho Gomes gratefully gathers. Watford look happy with what they have.

Derby 2-2 Watford

Derby having plenty of the ball around Watford's penalty area but top scorer Chris Martin, on for Craig Bryson, heads over the bar. Can the big man grab a winner?

Derby 2-2 Watford

Will Derby's winless run stretch to seven matches? They need a goal in the last eight minutes to stop that happening.

Derby 2-2 Watford

There is a winner in this match as Derby pile forward looking to take advantage of Watford's numerical deficit. Tom Ince fires over after a turn inside the penalty area. Watford still look dangerous on the break though.

"What a ball that is from Adlene Guedioura for Watford's equaliser (see 76 mins). He was looking the other way as well. It was perfectly weighted and Odion Ighalo provides the finish. An unbelievable pass."

Derby 2-2 Watford

The hero a minute ago, Odion Ighaloalmost turns villain as he loses the ball and Tom Ince races through on goal. He looks certain to score but goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes keeps it out with his feet. What a last 10 minutes we have ahead. A Watford winner would move them top.

Doncaster 0-2 Bradford

The away side have now doubled their lead - Billy Clarke is the man with the goal, hammering the ball past Stephen Bywater from 18 yards to put the Bantams two to the good. Under 20 minutes for Doncaster to find a reply.

GOAL

Derby 2-2 Watford - Odion Ighalo (76 mins)

Derby have more work to do now as Watford level, and what a goal that is. Odion Ighalo chests the ball into Adlene Guedioura, whose brilliant curling pass falls at the striker's feet and he finishes calmly.

Derby 2-1 Watford

Watford still coming forward. Derby have work to do yet to secure their first win seven.

Derby 2-1 Watford

Former Portsmouth striker Steve Claridge

BBC Radio 5 live at Pride Park

"Darren Bent is looking in fantastic form - I haven't see him play with such energy in years - but up front for Watford it's a different story.

"Odion Ighalo and Troy Deeney are very similar in style and perhaps leaving Matej Vrydra would have given them something a bit different. Ighalo has given the ball away an awful lot. There's no rush from Derby. They can afford to be patient now they're ahead."

Derby 2-1 Watford

Watford may be a man light and a goal down but they aren't giving up yet. A good spell of pressure by the visitors.

Derby 2-1 Watford

A free-kick to Watford 40 yards out on the flank. The least said about that the better though as Daniel Tozer's delivery ends up behind the goal and in the Derby crowd. Horrible.

Derby 2-1 Watford

Jesse, Jesse, Jesse. The Manchester United loanee is played through on goal by the impressive Tom Ince but, after too much dallying, the chance is gone and his shot blocked. Needs to do better.

YELLOW CARD

Derby 2-1 Watford

'You don't know what you're doing' is chanted by the Watford fans towards referee Kevin Friend as he books Troy Deeney after clattering Ryan Shotton. Seemed fair enough to me.

Doncaster 0-1 Bradford

As soon as we brought you news of a goalless draw at the Keepmoat stadium Gary MacKenzie pops up to give Bradford the lead with his first goal for the club, scrambling home after Doncaster failed to clear a Filipe Morais cross.

Close to half an hour remaining in that one.

SUBSTITUTION

Derby 2-1 Watford

Scotland danger man Ikechi Anya comes into midfield for Watford in place of Miguel Layun. An attacking move by the 10-men Hornets.

Race for the Premier League

So what has that done to the Championship table?

Championship
BBC

Not a great deal, although Middlesbrough will be feeling a lot more comfortable at the top of the table - for tonight at least. Derby are also up to fifth, pushing Brentford back into sixth. Seven points between the top eight.

Doncaster 0-0 Bradford

It's all square at the Keepmoat Stadium where 12th are taking on 11th in the League One table.

Curtis Main came closest to breaking the deadlock for Doncaster just before half-time, striking the post from the edge of the area, while James Hanson headed Bradford's best effort wide.
