Reds nearly throw it away again but cling on to seal first home win in three, and consign The Rams to a first league defeat in seven.

Despite losing top scorer Ricardo Vaz Te, The Reds bagged three goals for the first time since the 4-1 hammering of Leeds on New Year’s Eve when Vaz Te scored a hat-trick. It was the first time The Rams- who had kept clean sheets in each of their last three league matches, had conceded more than once in a game since November. The Rams two second half goals stretched Barnsley’s run without a clean sheet to 12 matches.
