Derby 3-0 Charlton: Improved second half from Addicks but sloppy first half defending proves costly. All attention turns to Leeds away on Tuesday now.
Harriott cross comes in but just fails to find Obika or Pigott. Three minutes of added time have been signalled.

Chris Martin with Derby's third - puts the disappointment of this week's break up behind him with a glancing header from a corner

Harriott's cross drifts just wide of Pigott after Obika had done well to play ball to him
Hamer saves comfortably
Derby pressing again, they win a corner
Double Derby change - Thorne and Bamford off for Eustace and Salmon
Charlton will take a lot of positivity from this second half display to Elland Road on Tuesday
'Go on Jesus' shout a few Derby kids sat to my right at Diego Poyet
Pigott denied by Grant with a 25-yard shot after Obika had pulled the ball back to him
Decent spell of Charlton pressure at the minute
Now Obika wins a corner
George Thorne hacks the ball clear
Another Charlton change - Sordell off, Pigott on as Cousins wins a corner
Much better from Charlton
Good save by Grant to keep out Harriott's stinging volley

A bit brighter from the Addicks but not much to report at the start of the second half
Second half underway and Charlton have made a change as Harriott enters for Reza

Could be a damage limitation job now bearing in mind Charlton's lack of goals
Ball was gifted to the Rams twice, first by Wood and then Jackson. Shocking defending as Alan Hansen would say.

It was a great move by the Addicks and ended with grant pushing jackson's shot behind for a corner

George Thorne blasts over for the Rams
Derby have a corner, Charlton inviting a lot of early pressure at the minute
Richard Wood gets in a good block as the Addicks defence opened up
Craig Bryson sees a long range low drive fly harmlessly wide
Could be fun trying to pick out the Derby players with their grey numbers on the back of white shirts
We are off and underway here
Teams are out. COYA!!!
Stands are filling up here as kick-off approaches, just 10 minutes to go now.
Astrit Ajdarevic has the flu I've just been informed so that is why he is out.
José Riga has opted for an attacking side today. Wood replaces Dervite. Hopefully it doesn't backfire! What's your prediction? #cafc— @CharltonFanTV 29 March 2014
Jose Riga's named 3 strikers in the team today, we don't fear those goats! #cafc— @_DanSheed 29 March 2014
Charlton subs: Thuram-Ulien, Hughes, Nego, Lennon, Harriott, Petrucci, Pigott
Charlton: Hamer, Wilson, Wiggins, Morrison, Wood, Poyet, Cousins, Jackson, Ghoochannejhad, Sordell, Obika.
Derby are unchanged from their 2-1 midweek reverse at Portman Road.
Thursday’s loan capture from Manchester United Davide Petrucci is named among the Addicks substitutes.
The Addicks make two changes from the side which started Tuesday's 1-0 win at Nottingham Forest and they are both injury enforced. Astrit Ajdarevic and Dorina Dervite are out so in come Jon Obika and Richard Wood.
Good afternoon from the iPro Stadium, the home of Derby County.
