Leon Best's late equaliser earned Blackburn Rovers a deserved point against Derby County at Pride Park.

The game was brought to a halt ten minutes from the break with Blackburn striker Ruben Rochina stretchered off with a dislocated shoulder.

Derby debutant Johnny Russell then slammed home a penalty to open the scoring for the hosts after 41 minutes, after Alex Marrow was adjudged to have handled the ball in the box.

However Best's 89th-minute volley denied Derby all three points and gave Blackburn a share of the spoils.
