Yannick Bolasie gave the visitors the lead in the 13th minute when he rounded goalkeeper Adam Legzdins before firing into the roof of the net.

Jamie Ward, Chris Martin and Craig Bryson all had chances before the break as Palace goalkeeper Julian Speroni pulled off a number of saves to keep his side in front.

Speroni was called into action at the start of the second half as he came off his line quickly to deny Conor Sammon, while Legzdins tipped Jonathan Williams's effort over the crossbar at the other end.

Derby were soon piling on the pressure and it was Speroni again who came to Palace's rescue as he kept out John Brayford's strike.

The hosts were given a golden opportunity to draw level in the 86th minute when they were awarded a penalty for Damien Delaney's foul on Ben Davies.

However, Speroni continued his heroics in goal with a save from Sammon's spot kick to earn his side their first away victory of 2013.
