    Time:90'
    • Derby County
    • Cardiff City
    • 90+2' The referee brings the game at Pride Park to an end where Cardiff have run out 3-0 winners.
    • 90' Oooooh!! Frank Fielding nearly has a Peter Enckleman moment as he lets a throw-in roll past his body. It's got too much pace on it and the keeper has to scamper to stop it on the line. Very close, that!
    • 86' Gareth Roberts' long throw is picked up by Jeff Hendrick who takes one touch before having a pop at goal. Andrew Taylor's sliding tackle is enough to block the effort.
    • 85' Cardiff make their third and final change of the night as Joe Mason replaces Craig Conway.
    • 77' The injured Kevin McNaughton is replaced by Stephen McPhail for the visiting side.
    • 75' GOAL FOR CARDIFF!! Game over. Aron Gunnarsson skips down the right before pulling the ball back to Peter Whittingham who gives the keeper the eyes and slams it home.
    • 75' Daniel Bogdanovic replaces Lomana LuaLua, who receives a standing ovation, and Thomas Ince is brought on in place of Callum McManaman.
    • 71' Youngster Mason Bennett, who has done very well tonight, is taken off. Callum Ball is the man to replace him.
    • 64' GOAL FOR CARDIFF!! Peter Whittingham drives a corner to the near post. It's flicked on by Kenny Miller but it takes a deflection off Kevin Kilbane on the way in.
    • 61' Derby's Ben Davies whips a dangerous ball to the near post which is met by the towering Jason Shackell. The centre half is unable to direct his header on goal and it flies over the bar.
    • 60' Superb football from Cardiff who build up down the right before getting to the byline and firing the ball across goal. The onrushing Peter Whittingham meets the ball but his shot from eight yards is blocked superbly by Gareth Roberts.
    • 53' Chris Maguire is replaced by Tomasz Cywka as Derby look to get back into this match.
    • 52' Cardiff's Aron Gunnarsson is the next to have a go at the Derby goal. This one looks to be troubling the sprawling Fielding too, but it fizzes a few yards wide.
    • 49' Great effort by Peter Whittingam as he chests a loose ball on the edge of the Derby penalty area before volleying at goal. Frank Fielding looks beaten but the effort drops just wide.
    • 47' David Marshall has been replaced by Tom Heaton in goal for Cardiff at the start of this second half.
    • 46' The second half is under way at Pride Park as Cardiff City lead 1-0.
    • 45' The referee brings the first half to an end as Cardiff lead 1-0 through Filip Kiss.
    • 44' Cardiff's Aron Gunnarsson finds Ben Turner with a long throw. The Cardiff man is unmarked and isn't closed down so elects to shoot. Frank Fielding watches it fly over the bar.
    • 41' The visiting side continue to play the better football. They're chasing down every ball and are beating their opponents to the second ball. It's been a very good last 30 minutes after a poor opening 10.
    • 37' Peter Whittingham flies down the wing and beats his man before winning a corner. He takes it himself but the set-piece is poor and is cleared.
    • 34' David Marshall makes a smart stop as Jamie Ward skips past a number of challenges before shooting at goal. Andrew Taylor smashes the ball away to safety.
    • 32' Derby's Russel Anderson is forced off injured as Jake Buxton replaces him.
    • 27' Craig Conway has a pop at goal from just outside of the penalty area as he looks to put his side two goals clear. Frankie Fielding sees it early and makes the save.
    • 20' GOAL FOR CARDIFF!! A long free kick is sent into the penalty area and isn't dealt with. Filip Kiss control well before swivelling and firing low into the bottom corner.
    • 16' Cardiff have their first effort on goal following a decent bit of play. Filip Kiss is on the end of it and shoots from just inside the penalty area. It fails to test the keeper, though...
    • 11' Mark Hudson takes a knock to the face and has to be taken to the touchline momentarily. It's 11 v 10 for the moment...
    • 7' 15-year-old Mason Bennett has looked very lively so far. He's all over the park and is closing opposition down very well.
    • 6' Derby have started very quickly in the match and have been in the visitors' half for most of these opening minutes.
    • 4' Ben Davis' free kick from the edge of the area looks to be troubling David Marshall in the Cardiff net, but the effort drifts just wide.
    • 1' The first half is under way as the referee blows the whistle.
    • 19:40 Mark O'Brien has also failed to make the squad after injuring his shoulder in their win over Pompey so Kevin Kilbane, who replaced his fellow Irishman at the weekend, starts in the heart of defence.
    • 19:35 15-year-old schoolboy Mason Bennett starts up front for the Rams in place of striker Theo Robinson, who strained a hamstring in Saturday's 3-1 win over Portsmouth at Pride Park. Bennett, who made his debut 11 days ago against Middlesbrough, partners Chris Maguire, who starts despite breaking his nose against Portsmouth, in attack.
