    FT: Derby 4-2 Wolves

    Jeff Hendrick

    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.

  8. 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.

  9. Derby 4-2 Wolves

    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.

  10. INJURY TIME

    Derby 4-2 Wolves

    Another four minutes added on in Derby.

  11. 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. 

  12. Derby 4-2 Wolves

    Tom Ince

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

  13. 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...

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. SUBSTITUTION

    Derby 4-2 Wolves

    Adam Le Fondre and Cyrus Christie

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

  17. 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.

  18. Derby 4-2 Wolves

    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."

  19. SUBSTITUTION

    Derby 4-2 Wolves

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

  20. Derby 4-2 Wolves

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

  21. 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.

  22. 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.

  23. 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.

  24. 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?

  25. 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.

  26. Derby 4-1 Wolves

    Quote Message: What a performance from the Derby County boys. They are getting their just deserts for high-tempo football. from Craig Ramage Ex-Derby midfielder on BBC Radio Derby
    Craig RamageEx-Derby midfielder on BBC Radio Derby
  27. Derby 4-1 Wolves

    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.

  28. GOAL (Russell)

    Derby 4-1 Wolves

    Johnny Russell scores

    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.

  29. 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.  

  30. 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.

  31. Derby 3-1 Wolves

    Wolves have barely had a kick after the break and Derby carve out another opportunity. 

    Chris Martin overhits a cross from the right when Johnny Russell was free in the area.

  32. Derby 3-1 Wolves

    Chris Martin flicks the ball towards goal with the outside of his boot from the corner but it is nowhere near the target.

  33. Derby 3-1 Wolves

    Johnny Russell again causing problems down the left with his speed. 

    He tries to deliver in the box but Wolves clear for a corner...

  34. Derby 3-1 Wolves

    Quote Message: Derby are in the box seat. Wolves have really got to step it up to get back into this game. from Mel Eves Ex-Wolves striker on BBC WM
    Mel EvesEx-Wolves striker on BBC WM
  35. Derby 3-1 Wolves

    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.

  36. KICK-OFF

    Derby 3-1 Wolves

    The light blue shirted Wolves get us under way.

  37. HT: Derby 3-1 Wolves

    The teams are back out in Derby and we're close to getting going again.

    Anyone for another four goal?

  39. Five things you may have missed

    HT: Derby 3-1 Wolves

    This is the last but of Football League action from the weekend.

    A highlight sure has to be goalkeeper scoring, who in football cannot love that? It happened yesterday when Stevenage keeper Jesse Joronen scored from a clearance in their win over Wycombe.

    For more interesting tales from throughout Saturday's Football League fixtures, including a happy and relieved mum, referees in the wars, contrasting fortunes for some new bosses and a goalscoring return for a club legend, BBC Sport has rounded up them up for you.

  40. Next in the Championship

    HT: Derby 3-1 Wolves

    Bobby Zamora

    As we take a breather during half-time, just a reminder that your next dose of Championship action comes on Tuesday night and BBC Sport will keep you up-to-date throughout.

    These two teams, though, have to wait until a day later for their midweek game as Derby go to Blackburn and Wolves host Brentford.

  41. HALF-TIME

    Derby 3-1 Wolves

    Four goals, a missed penalty, it's fair to say that was a lively half of football.

    Chris Martin's stunning strike got us going for Derby, before Benik Afobe levelled from a corner.

    Martin headed the hosts into the lead again, then saw his penalty saved in added time before Bradley Johnson got the Rams' third.

  42. GOAL (Johnson)

    Derby 3-1 Wolves

    Bradey Johnson scores

    Johnny Russell swings the corner in and Bradley Johnson arrives at the far post to side-foot a bouncing shot into the next from eight yards.

    A real sickener for Kenny Jackett after that penalty save from Emiliano Martinez.

  43. MISSED PENALTY (Martin)

    Derby 2-1 Wolves

    Chris Martin is denied his hat-trick by the outstretched Emiliano Martinez who gets down well to stop Derby's top scorer.

  44. PENALTY (Derby)

    Derby 2-1 Wolves

    Tom Ince is fouled inside the box by Danny Batth and Derby can make it three before half-time...

  45. INJURY TIME

    Derby 2-1 Wolves

    We're going to have another two minutes at the iPro Stadium

  46. Derby 2-1 Wolves

    Wolves counter in numbers after a Derby attack, but this time James Henry's delivery is not on the money. 

    He goes for a drilled effort with four aqua blue shirts to aim for.

  47. Derby 2-1 Wolves

    Dominic Iorfa nearly gets himself into trouble when Johnny Russell closes down his clearance.

    However the Wolves right-back shows excellent strength to win the ball back and clear his lines.

  48. Derby 2-1 Wolves

    It comes to nothing as Emiliano Martinez gathers easily in the Wolves goal.

  49. Derby 2-1 Wolves

    Tom Ince's corner is headed away but Derby keep possession and Ince is then tripped 30 yards out on the left hand side. 

    Promising position this for the hosts.

  50. Derby 2-1 Wolves

    Johnny Russell, Chris Martin and Craig Forsyth all combine well down the left and Derby win a corner...

  51. Derby 2-1 Wolves

    Ged Scott

    BBC Sport at the iPro Stadium

    "It all depends on your perspective and what colour scarf you wear as to how you view Derby's second goal.

    "Was it a classic centre forward's leap from Chris Martin?

    "Or was it blatant foul on Kortney Hause as the Derby number nine powered his leap into the air with both hands on the Wolves defender's shoulders?" 

    Chris Martin header
  52. Derby 2-1 Wolves

    Incisive and neat interplay by Derby, with Chris Martin at the heart of it again.

    It's worked to the edge of the area where Jeff Hendrick's low strike is well gathered.

  53. Derby 2-1 Wolves

    A bit of a lull in the game after that second Derby goal. It has been a frantic opening half an hour.

  54. Derby 2-1 Wolves

    Quote Message: What a brave centre forward, what a header when Wolves were dominating and looking the most likely. Chris Martin is the king pin of this team. He knows where the net is. from Craig Ramage Ex-Derby midfielder on BBC Radio Derby
    Craig RamageEx-Derby midfielder on BBC Radio Derby
  55. GOAL (Martin)

    Derby 2-1 Wolves

    Chris Martin scores

    Just as Wolves were getting on top, Derby are back in front.

    A lovely floated, curling ball into the box by Bradley Johnson and Chris Martin beats Kortney Hause in the air and the fists of onrushing goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez.

    A brave header that.

  56. CLOSE!

    Derby 1-1 Wolves

    Somehow Derby keep this out.

    James Henry again with the delivery, it is headed back across goal and Adam Le Fondre's effort is blocked by two defenders with the net gaping from 7 yards out.

    Wolves growing into this game.

  57. Derby 1-1 Wolves

    James Henry has time to deliver from the right, but none of the Wolves players are quite on the same wavelength to get on the end of his whipped cross.

  58. Derby 1-1 Wolves

    Wolves are getting a lot of joy out of the flanks at the moment, with James Henry and Jed Wallace seeing lots of the ball.

    Another cross comes in but this time it is well marshalled by the Derby defence.

  59. Derby 1-1 Wolves

    Quote Message: It's a great set-piece off the training ground from Wolves and Henry and Afobe have executed it perfectly. It's nothing less that Wolves deserve. They have worked their way back into the game. from Mel Eves Ex-Wolves striker on BBC WM
    Mel EvesEx-Wolves striker on BBC WM
  60. GREAT SAVE!

    Derby 1-1 Wolves

    Derby nearly instantly regain the lead as that man again, Chris Martin, fires towards the bottom corner.

    On loan Arsenal stopper Emiliano Martinez stretches out well to keep the ball out and also holds onto the ball.

  61. GOAL (Afobe)

    Derby 1-1 Wolves

    Benik Afobe scores

    This is a very clever set piece as Wolves drill the corner in low, and top scorer Benik Afobe is somehow in acres of space to fire home first time just outside the six-yard box.

    His sixth Championship goal of the season and game on now!

  62. Derby 1-0 Wolves

    Wolves first half-chance, if you can even call it that. He challenges Richard Keogh from a hopeful punt into the box and the visitors have a corner...

  63. Bradley Johnson

    Derby 1-0 Wolves

    Derby midfielder Bradley Johnson's been busy in the opening 15 minutes, getting forward well to support Chris Martin and being a presence in the centre of the park.

    The transfer deadline day arrival already looks a key figure in this side.

    Bradley Johnson
  64. Derby 1-0 Wolves

    Ged Scott

    BBC Sport at the iPro Stadium

    "After a sluggish start of almost Coldplay album track quality, as both sides tentatively sounded each other out, Chris Martin's third-minute strike has brought the iPro Stadium to life.

    "And, hardly surprisingly either. What a stunner. And he was twice involved too, having produced a clever flick in the build-up.

    "It then took a full-length save from Emiliano Martinez to prevent the Rams making it 2-0 when George Thorne had a go from similar range.

    "Wolves look to more than have their hands full here."

  65. Derby 1-0 Wolves

    Derby defender Jason Shackell challenges Benik Afobe strongly on the halfway line and the Wolves striker is down holding his head and will receive some treatment.

  67. GREAT SAVE!

    Derby 1-0 Wolves

    Derby really looking in the mood at the moment.

    The corner is headed out by Wolves but from 25 yards out George Thorn hits a first time volley that is well saved by Emiliano Martinez. Superb technique on that hit.

  68. Derby 1-0 Wolves

    Both teams are looking bright when on the ball in the opening exchanges.

    Good work by Cyrus Christie gives Derby the first corner of the game...

  69. Get Involved on #bbcfootball

    Looks like Derby keeper Kelle Roos enjoyed Chris Martin's effort...

  70. Derby 1-0 Wolves

    That goal was the first time either side had managed to get into the opposition's penalty area.

    Wolves try to work the ball down the left in response but Jed Wallace is flagged offside.

  71. Derby 1-0 Wolves

    Quote Message: What a screamer that is from Chris Martin into the top corner! He put the goalkeeper into the net with it. That's just the start that Derby wanted. from Craig Ramage Ex-Derby midfielder on BBC Radio Derby

  72. GOAL (Martin)

    Derby 1-0 Wolves

    Derby celebrate

    What. A. Strike.

    Some neat interplay between Bradley Johnson and Jeff Hendrick sets up Chris Martin on the edge of the area and the striker rifles a shot into the roof of the net.

    Five goals in his last seven games for the Derby skipper.

  73. Derby 0-0 Wolves

    Some crisp passing from Derby to get the game going, but neither side is yet to mount a meaningful attack.

  74. KICK-OFF

    Derby 0-0 Wolves

    Here we go. Derby gets us going.

    Despite no kit clash, Wolves are playing in their changed light blue kit. Apparently it is officially "aqua" coloured.

  81. Good afternoon

    Derby v Wolves (13:15 BST)

    iPro Stadium

    Welcome to your Sunday lunchtime offering in the Championship, which comes from Derby as the Rams take on Wolves.

    Both of these teams will have had expectations of promotion going into the new campaign, but they sit slightly off the early pace with Derby lying seventh and Wolves sitting 11th.

    They come into this match having both won their past two games - can a third win in a row really ignite their season?
