The 18-year-old fired the home side in front after just seven minutes, before Harry Bunn equalised for Chris Powell’s side on 22 minutes
Johnny Russell then restored the Rams' advantage just before half-time, tapping in a rebound after Alex Smithies parried Chris Martin's shot, before Simon Dawkins came off the bench to increase the lead with 13 minutes left.
Mark Hudson gave the visitors a consolation goal in stoppage-time, prompting manager Steven McClaren to claim post-match that his team deserved to win by more than one goal.
‘I’m disappointed with the goal at the end, we deserved to win by two goals at least and I am pleased with the performance and the result – especially after Saturday,’ he told the club’s official website.
‘It was a good reaction against a Huddersfield team who were very dangerous and they proved they can score goals.
‘To come through, get the result and get that kind of disciplined performance after Saturday, was very good.’

Ibe was certainly one of the brighter performers on the night, showing clear glimpses of the player who many believe is set for a bright future at Anfield.
However, the England Under-20 international’s end product was also found somewhat lacking, leading to a mixed reaction among fans to his overall showing.
Once ibe got his goal, went very lazy— J a m e s (@jimmybannister_) November 4, 2014
Hughes excellent again and Hendrick good. Ibe inconsistent as ever but took his goal exceptionally well.— Derby County Podcast (@dcfcpodcast) November 4, 2014
Ibe finally did something for the team, it's amazing what happens when you pass, and actually take a shot! Keep it going now Ibe #dcfc— Dicko! (@Dicko_James) November 4, 2014
Jordon Ibe is one of the most frustrating players I have ever seen. At times sublime, but others god awful. #dcfc— Ben Smyth (@bensmyth18) November 4, 2014
Much better tonight. Shotton Keogh Christie Mascarell and Hendrick all quality. Kept the ball well and Ibe actually passed! #DCFC— Ben Moore (@BenMoore92) November 4, 2014
Jordon Ibe puts #dcfc one up. Don't tell him he might well have got a game at the Bernabeu tonight if he hadn't come to us on loan...— David Ottewell (@davidottewell) November 4, 2014
