Kris Commons opened the scoring in the 11th minute with a superb free-kick and Derby doubled their lead eight minutes before the interval with a deflected strike from Paul Green.

Bournemouth reduced their arrears on the stroke of half-time, Brett Pitman scoring from the penalty spot after Dean Moxey had been penalised for a foul on Harry Arter.

But the Rams restored their two-goal cushion midway through the second half when James Bailey curled a left-footed shot past Shwan Jalal.

There was still time for the hosts to fight back, however, and Arter pulled one back with six minutes remaining before Warren Cummings fired home a stunning 30-yard equaliser in the dying seconds.
