Huddersfield Town were pegged back by a late Jacob Butterfield strike at Pride Park today as their automatic promotion bid took another blow.

Collin Quaner had put the Terriers ahead in the ninth minute with a cute flick from Martin Cranie's cross, but the ex-Town midfielder halted the party atmosphere in the away end on the 88th minute.

Town invited the Rams on to them in the second half and Derby deserved the equaliser on the balance of play.

What was more disappointing about the draw was that Town were unable to capitalise on Newcastle United faltering against Ipswich at Portman Road earlier in the day.

Here's how the match at Pride Park unfolded...
