It looked for all money as if the match would end in a goalless draw until defender Craig Forsyth headed in a Will Hughes cross in the 87th minute.

The game was even in terms of possession, but the Rams fashioned 16 attempts on goal compared to the home team's nine.

Forsyth's goal was Derby's first in this season's Championship, after an opening-day goalless draw with Brighton and a 2-0 defeat at Barnsley. 

Preston are yet to register a point this season and lie 23rd in the table. This defeat represented the Lilywhites' second consecutive home defeat, having lost 2-1 to Fulham on the weekend.

Preston visit Loftus Road on Saturday afternoon for a tough clash with QPR who currently lie 5th. Simon Grayson's side will have to start winning soon or the fans may lose patience.
