Derby County were held to a 1-1 draw with Preston North End thanks to a last minute equaliser by Tom Barkhuizen.
The Rams seemed to have the win sealed as the game progressed into the fifth minute of injury time but Preston and Barkhuizen had other ideas.
The former Morecambe forward scored with the side’s first shot on target in the 95th minute, much to the frustration of the Pride Park crowd.
Due to the late draw, Derby now find themselves a distant ten points from sixth place Sheffield Wednesday.
With games against top sides including Brighton and Huddersfield still to come, the task looks increasingly difficult and it will definitely take a huge effort from now until the end of the season to see Derby achieve their aim of sneaking into the play-off places.
Inevitably, Derby fans took to Twitter to share their opinions following the late equaliser and below are just a few which sum the mood up..

Outplayed & lucky to take a point. This #dcfc team is devoid of brains, quality, belief or backbone. In short; they are pathetic.

#dcfc we're rather dull again last night, both full backs had shockers and we allowed Preston to dominate the last 10 mins.
