Derby County heroes Jeff Hendrick and Cyrus Christie take to Twitter after important win

The Rams beat Brentford 3-1 at Griffin Park.

Derby County have been on a horrid run of form recently. Until today they were without a game in their last seven games but even after the sacking of Paul Clement the poor form continued - losing at home to MK Dons last weekend.

Today it seemed like they were on their way to another defeat. A stunning goal from Alan Judge had Brentford in the lead at Griffin Park and it appeared as though The Bees were on their way to victory.

Until a magnificent final ten minutes from Derby County saw them win the game and stay in contention in the Championship.

Jeff Hendrick bagged the equaliser in the 80th minute before Cyrus Christie's first goal for The Rams looked to give them the win.

To make things safe, substitute Chris Martin added a third in injury time.

The superb performance had some of the Derby players tweeting post game - including two of the goalscorers.

Republic of Ireland pair Hendrick and Christie dragged Derby back into the game and both were clearly happy with their contribution to a massive win:

Derby fans will now be hoping that this is a turning point in their season.
