Result: Derby County fight back to earn draw with Cardiff City

Derby County come back from two goals down to earn a draw with Cardiff City in the Championship.

Derby County fought back from two goals down to draw 2-2 with Cardiff City at the iPro Stadium in the Championship this afternoon.

Second-half goals from Jordon Ibe and Craig Bryson cancelled out strikes from Aron Gunnarson and Peter Whittingham as the spoils were shared.

The Rams, who had the better of things in the opening 45 minutes, had a couple of early chances through Chris Martin and Simon Dawkins but both efforts flew wide of the goal.

Will Hughes nearly opened the scoring with a long-range effort, and the goalkeeper David Marshall came to his side's rescue on a number of occasions.

Jamie Ward went close shortly before the half-hour mark but his strike was well saved by Marshall, before Bryson headed wide on 33 minutes.

However, despite their first-half dominance, the home side found themselves two goals down within 10 minutes of the second period.

Gunnarson turned home an effort shortly after the restart before Whittingham struck a volley to double the lead.

That forced Derby manager Steve McClaren into changes and on-loan Liverpool youngster Ibe arrived off the bench to reduce the deficit just after the hour mark.

Bryson then evened the score up when his fierce effort cannoned in off the post after Marshall had denied another substitute, Johnny Russell, in the build-up.
