Elias Kachunga headed a dramatic stoppage-time winner for Huddersfield Town to send the Town faithful into delirium.

The John Smith's Stadium clash was three minutes into the four added on when the German converted Harry Bunn's cross to lift Town back to third in the Championship.

However, until then it had looked as though Town would have to make do with a goalless draw, despite looking much brighter than in their mid-week defeat away to Preston.

Scott Carson was the busier of the two keepers, making good second-half saves from Nahki Wells and substitute Bunn.

Derby are the Football League's lowest scorers with just seven, and seldom provided a real threat to Town but they had conceded only 10 - until Kachunga claimed his fifth goal of the season.

It was a ninth win of the league campaign for David Wagner's side, who had lost their previous two games, watched by a recorded gate of 19,794 including 1,932 Derby fans.
