Derby County and Watford are level at 1-1 in their Championship match at Pride Park this afternoon.

Derby County and Watford are currently drawing 1-1 in their Championship match at Pride Park this afternoon.

Troy Deeney gave the visitors the lead inside the opening five minutes when he was slipped through on goal by Cristian Battocchio, and he lashed a fierce strike into the roof of the net past Lee Grant.

Derby came close to a response when Jamie Ward flashed a low ball across the six-yard box, but Johnny Russell could not stretch to meet it at the back post.

The Rams did manage to level the score in the 28th minute through Jeff Hendrick, who smashed a low strike past the keeper after the visiting defence failed to clear Craig Forsyth's cross.

Derby should have scored a second moments later when George Thorne put Ward clean through on goal, but the striker saw his attempt saved by Jonathan Bond.

Ward was the next to threaten for the hosts as he found space on the edge of the box before curling an effort just wide of the post.
