All the action as our reserves came from 2-0 down to draw 2-2 against Derby County at Pride Park on Wednesday night.

Tomas Pekhart and Kevin-Prince Boateng bagged the goals - we'll have a full report later tonight...

THE KEY ACTION...DERBY COUNTY RESERVES 2, SPURS RESERVES 2...

Full-time: Derby County 2, Spurs 2

Added time: CHANCE - DERBY. Patient build-up as Derby worked an opening for Loesch to shoot, hit high and wide from 20 yards.

88.14: Kasim instant impact off the bench, fed in Barcham, right side of box, shooting chance there for a second but delayed shot and crowded out.

84.59: SAVE - ALNWICK. Macken played in left side of box, switched to right foot and hit shot that although straight at Alnwick, went through Mills and Simmons in front of him, fine reactions to block.

80.35: WOODWORK - SPURS. Wonderfully flighted free-kick from Ifil, right touchline, met by glancing header from Boateng that skidded up off the turf and clipped the top of the crossbar.

74mins: CLOSE - DERBY. Play continued fro Alnwick's save, Macken poked goalwards and it needed Ifil's tackle to deflect just wide.

73.48: SAVE - ALNWICK. Great reactions from Alnwick as Robertson connected sweetly on the half-volley 12 yards out from Macken's cross.

68.07: YELLOW CARD - SPURS. Pekhart for foul on Dudley.

66.40: Barcham nutmegged Dudley, right byline, clipped over cross just too high for Livermore and Pekhart.

63.09: GOAL - SPURS. Derby failed to clear Obika's corner, Boateng made something out of nothing, overhead kick from 16 yards looped home off the upright.

62.26: Barcham did well to get away from Edworthy, into box, couple of players to aim for but Addison over to block cross.

59.14: YELLOW CARD - DERBY. Hanson for foul on Obika.

53.28: YELLOW CARD - DERBY. Johnson for foul on Pekhart.

50.55: Long clearance from Alwnick hit Boateng and fell kindly for Pekhart, didn't need a second invitation to crack one from 25 yards, straight at Price.

48.33: SAVE - ALNWICK. Macken slid clever pass into run of Dudley, clear sight of goal 10 yards out, Alnwick quickly out to block and gather at second attempt.

Half-time: Derby County 2, Spurs 1

Added time: PENALTY - SPURS? Livermore burst into box, Edworthy slid in and course of ball didn't appear to alter, penalty appeals waved away.

Added time: GOAL - SPURS. Lifeline. Livermore involved in the move, Boateng fed in Pekhart who finally found a yard of space in box and drilled home from 15 yards.

44.55: WOODWORK - DERBY. Holmes managed to escape three markers in midfield, slid in Macken, right side of box, tight angle but managed to shoot across Alnwick and effort clipped outside of upright.

40.25: Shooting chance for Holmes, central, 25 yards out, lashed into stand.

38.58: GOAL - DERBY. Breakaway from our free-kick on the edge of Derby's box, Simmons led the break and managed to get away from covering Barcham, laid it square to Robertson, free, left side of box, slid ball under Alnwick and home.

32.22: SAVE - ALNWICK. Richards skipped past McKenna centrally and hit drive from 30 yards that Alnwick parried away diving to his right.

30.46: Good move from Derby, Holmes again involved, cross from the left fund Robertson at near post but couldn't guide his header on target.

18.51: CLOSE - SPURS. Boateng curled 30-yard free-kick over wall, brushed side-netting as it flew just wide.

16.54: Good strength from Boateng to shake off Feilhaber in midfield, snatched at shot from 25 yards, hit wide.

14.59: WOODWORK - DERBY. Holmes got away down the left, low cross evaded Mills and left Robertson with golden chance six yards out, half-volleyed onto crossbar and ball cleared.

13.01: First spell of possession, Maghoma yard of space at far post, shifted ball away from Hanson but tame shot taken at near post by Price.

5.52: GOAL - DERBY. Holmes lifted high cross into the box, Alnwick tried to claim, appeared blocked off - certainly appealed that was the case - allowing Johnson to climb high and head into far corner. Further disappointment as Derby's attacked stemmed from blatant trip on McKenna that referee waved away.
