JACK Mar­riott grabbed a dra­matic late win­ner as Derby re­cov­ered from 2-0 and 3-2 down to win a gripping match de­layed for 20 min­utes be­cause of flood­light fail­ure.

Nor­wich de­servedly led through Ben God­frey’s back­post strike and a fine break­away sec­ond that was well fin­ished by Teemu Pukki.

Goals by Fikayi To­moro and Ma­son Mount drew the Rams level by the in­ter­val.

And al­though Pukki re­stored the Nor­wich lead just be­fore the lights went out in one sec­tion, the Rams re­turned to score twice in the fi­nal five min­utes through Flo­rian Joze­f­zoon, af­ter a goal­mouth scram­ble, and Mar­riotts’s stylish dinked fin­ish.

Cham­pi­onship lead­ers Leeds United had their seven-game win­ning run ended af­ter Jar­rod Bowen scored both goals to give Hull City vic­tory at El­land Road.

Bowen, re­port­edly a Jan­uary trans­fer tar­get for Leeds, pounced on some poor de­fend­ing in the box and show­cased his fin­ish­ing with the opener from close range.

His sec­ond was an­other op­por­tunis­tic goal, with the for­ward re­act­ing quick­est to put the re­bound away af­ter Will Keane was de­nied by Bai­ley Pea­cock­Far­rell.

Sh­effield United scored three times in the last 20 min­utes to see off Black­burn and move to within two points of third place in the Cham­pi­onship.

Af­ter both sides re­ceived a sec­ond-half red card, Blades skip­per Billy Sharp hooked in to break the stale­mate be­fore fir­ing past David Raya to dou­ble their lead.

David McGoldrick chested in a third from John Fleck’s cross to seal the re­sult, in a game which was closer than the score­line sug­gested.

Mid­dles­brough picked up a first home win in four Cham­pi­onship matches as they con­demned bot­tom club Ip­swich to an­other de­feat.

The hosts took the lead through Jor­dan Hugill’s first-half penalty af­ter Jor­dan Spence was ad­judged to have fouled the striker in the air.

Ei­ther side of that goal, Dar­ren Ran­dolph pulled off a pair of im­pres­sive saves to deny Ip­swich from a Trevoh Chalobah header and Freddie Sears shot.

Sub­sti­tute Mar­cus Tav­ernier dou­bled Boro’s lead in the sec­ond half as he slot­ted home a ball from Jonny How­son at the near post.
