Derby County avoided relegation to Premier League Division 2, despite losing 3-1 at Leicester City, who scored all their goals in a late flurry.

The Rams went into the match needing a point to stay up and leave Sunderland in the bottom two.

Timi Max Elsnik put them ahead with a superb long-range strike on nine minutes but the match turned after Louie Sibley's 75th-minute dismissal.

Harvey Barnes equalised in the 87th minute and fired the hosts ahead in the first minute of stoppage time. Sam Hughes then hit the third.
