Derby County still holding on to their play offs spot in current English Championship campaign despite only grabbing a point from their latest away fixture against Birmingham City this past weekend. Both teams were caught in a tight encounter since the first 45 minutes, which saw them busy canceling each other out as that period ended in goalless draw. In the second period, it was Birmingham that got in front first through Brian Howards' effort on 48 minutes.
However, it was all Derby after that as they netted three consecutive goals from, Patrick Bamford on 49 minutes, Chris Martin 10 minutes later and also Craig Forsyth on 73 minutes. Trailing 3-1 didn't scare off Birmingham though as they were able to get back on level terms in that game with Chris Burke scoring on 78 minutes and a late effort from Federico Macheda.
