So the three points for Derby takes them up to sixth in the table, just one point behind second-placed Reading.

Wolves remain 11th, five points off the play-off places.

If you missed any of the six goals this afternoon at the iPro Stadium, Ged Scott's match report has you covered.

That is just about it for our coverage this afternoon.

If you have not had enough of a football fix for Sunday, you can follow BBC Sport's coverage of the only Premier League game of the day as Newcastle host Norwich.

FT: Derby 4-2 Wolves

We've had some other good performances but not across the two halves. I thought today we managed the game very well. I think we executed the game plan well, we showed we were strong and there we some quality individual performances.

FT: Derby 4-2 Wolves

We've got a great bunch of lads and a great squad, but we need to pick up consistency. We've just got to keep performances like this going and I think we'll be there or thereabouts.

Derby midfielder Bradley JohnsonSky Sports

"I thought it was a good display for the most part. We conceded a couple of sloppy goals, but overall it was a very good display.

There can't be too many complaints. What this game shows is that Derby's investment has been paying off and Wolves' lack of investment is showing up.

FULL-TIME

Derby 4-2 Wolves

An impressive performance from Derby as three points takes them into the play-off places and within a point of the top two.

Two goals from Chris Martin, who also had a penalty saved, added to by Bradley Johnson and Johnny Russell securing the win.

Wolves showed glimpses and Benik Afobe and Adam Le Fondre took their goals well, but they were second best this afternoon.

Wolves win a free-kick just inside the Derby half but Scott Carson comes and gathers easily.

The former England goalkeeper has seen Wolves score with their only two shots on target today.

INJURY TIME

Another four minutes added on in Derby.

SUBSTITUTION

Derby 4-2 Wolves

No hat-trick today for Chris Martin then as he is taken off for Darren Bent.

He'll be disappointed with his penalty that was saved but he took his two goals expertly.

Tom Ince's free-kick is never in danger of testing the Wolves goal though.

YELLOW CARD

Derby 4-2 Wolves

After losing the ball Bright Enobakhare tries to win it back and is put in the book for his troubles, minutes after coming on.

Wolves have a free-kick yards outside the box...

SUBSTITUTION

Derby 4-2 Wolves

Wolves make their final change with 17-year-old striker Bright Enobakhare replacing goalscorer Adam Le Fondre. His fourth professional appearance.

Derby 4-2 Wolves

Another chance for Johnny Russell. 

He takes a dinked cross inside the area but he's rushed into his shot by the Wolves defence and his sliced effort is easy for Emiliano Martinez to stop.

Adam Le Fondre and Cyrus Christie

Derby make their second change with Chris Baird on for right-back Cyrus Christie.

Derby 4-2 Wolves

A session of 'keep ball' appears to have broken out between the Derby players, but they also work it forward.

Johnny Russell nearly is the grateful recipient in the box but a Wolves foot stops him.

Ged Scott

BBC Sport at the iPro Stadium

"Admittedly, Wolves have not had their share of luck this afternoon. Derby's former Wolves defender Jason Shackell clearly blocked Adam Le Fondre's goal-bound shot with his elbow, the home side's second goal could have been chalked off as Chris Martin levered himself into the air off Kortney Hause's shoulders and Bradley Johnson knew little about the third goal, which just hit him. 

"But the visitors have generally been second best. And few would argue that the Rams deserve all three points."

SUBSTITUTION

Derby 4-2 Wolves

Paul Clement now opts from some fresh legs as Derby midfielder Jeff Hendrick comes off for Jacob Butterfield.

Moments later, Bradley Johnson lets rip from just outside the area but Emiliano Martinez gathers low down.

Derby 4-2 Wolves

A superb defence-splitting pass by Bradley Johnson sends Tom Ince in behind the defence but the winger is unable to control the ball.

Derby 4-2 Wolves

The noise levels are cranked up by the home fans.

They probably recognise Wolves have just settled into the game more over the past five minutes.

Derby 4-2 Wolves

This is the first time Derby have scored four since Paul Clement took charge in the summer. 

After that Adam Le Fondre goal, he'll be hoping it is not the first time they conceded four.

GOAL (Le Fondre)

Derby 4-2 Wolves

A stunning finish from Adam Le Fondre.

An innocuous ball to the far post is headed back across the six-yard box by Sheyi Ojo and Le Fondre lets it drift over his shoulder before volleying home. 

Superb technique and can that spark Wolves into life as they've struggled so far in this second half?

SUBSTITUTION

Derby 4-1 Wolves

Kenny Jackett responds to that fourth goal with a double substution.

Sheyi Ojo on for Jed Wallace and Conor Coady replaces Jack Price.

What a performance from the Derby County boys. They are getting their just deserts for high-tempo football.

Derby are rampant now.

Charging forward again, Jeff Hendrick's shot is blocked on the edge of the area and the hosts have a corner.

GOAL (Russell)

Johnny Russell scores
Empics

Is that the game secured for Derby?

Johnny Russell has been in full on beast mode since the start of the second half, bursting down the left and creating opportunities. 

After another well-worked Rams attack, the ball falls kindly to him and he stabs it home with his left foot.

Derby 3-1 Wolves

A free-kick on the edge of the area for Wolves is struck by Jeff Hendrick but it hits the wall and comes back out to him. His second effort also hits the wall and Wolves eventually clear.

Derby are in the box seat. Wolves have really got to step it up to get back into this game.

First tester of the second half goes to Derby.

Winger Johnny Russell, who scored twice in this fixture last season, makes a powerful run into the area but his shot is straight at the goalkeeper.
