Rotherham   2 - 1   Derby

League Two side Rotherham came from behind to humble last season's Carling Cup semi-finalists Derby County.

Championship outfit Derby went ahead after 11 minutes when Lee Croft pulled the ball back across the edge of the area for Gary Teale to drill home.

Paul Warne hit back for Rotherham when he pounced from 10 yards out and dispatched his shot into the corner.

And, on 64 minutes, Nicky Law crossed from the left and Warne laid the ball off for Kevin Ellison to fire home.

Derby, beaten by Manchester United in the Carling Cup semi final last season, struggled to find any sort of rhythm against Rotherham and boss Nigel Clough admitted the home side were worthy winners.

"Rotherham thoroughly deserved it," he said.

"I was disappointed by the manner of the defeat but I thought Rotherham thoroughly deserved their victory, but it's the manner in which you lose, not just the fact of losing."

Clough's side got their Championship campaign off to a winning start against Peterborough on Saturday but injuries to key players Rob Hulse and Chris Porter have depleted the forward line, a fact compounded when Steve Davies limped off after 15 minutes.

"We weren't as good as we were on Saturday. Having gone a goal up to go and then concede two goals in normal time and in the manner in which we did, I am very disappointed," he said.

"We didn't pass the ball around, but credit to Rotherham for the way they closed us down. We nicked the goal and were looking to get through to half time, but we didn't."

Rotherham boss Mark Robins praised his players for pulling off one of the biggest cup upsets of the first round.

"We started the game brightly and had a couple of half chances, but they scored with their first attack, but we didn't lose any heart from it," he said.

"It was a big scalp for us and I am delighted. I am pleased with the manner of the performance and the manner of the win, and I am delighted for Paul Warne."
