Derby secured Championship survival in dramatic fashion after drawing 3-3 with relegation rivals Sheffield Wednesday.

Having initially fallen behind, goals from Martyn Waghorn and Patrick Roberts put them ahead, before Wednesday took the lead with two quick-fire goals.

But Waghorn equalised from the spot late on to secure survival by one point – sending Wednesday down to League One for the first time in 35 years.

Wycombe Wanders (despite beating Middlesbrough 3-0) and Rotherham United (drew 1-1 with Cardiff) were also relegated.
