Southampton 1-2 Derby County, May 12
Arturo Lupoli did not feature as Derby took a big step towards the play-off final at St. Mary's. The Rams fell behind after seven minutes when Andrew Surman netted from 20 yards but Steve Howard turned the tie on its head. The Derby striker equalised with a looping header nine minutes before the break and fired the visitors ahead just before the hour mark with an emphatic penalty after Stephen Pearson had been fouled. Derby welcome Southampton to Pride Park on Tuesday night needing just a draw to book a place at Wembley.
