Town duo take on Chambo's celebration in his honour as Town pick up huge three points against the Rams

Tommy Smith and Christophe Berra both hailed the character of the squad, as Town came from behind to beat high-flying Derby at Portman Road.

The Rams took the lead inside the first minute through Patrick Bamford, before a stunning strike from Jonny Williams hauled Town level.

The drama wasn’t finished though, as the Blues grabbed all three points in stoppage time with Christophe heading past Lee Grant to win it for Mick McCarthy’s side.

“That’s a huge win for us, no doubt about that,” Tommy told the Club website.

“We obviously got off to a bad start, conceding after just 38 seconds, but the lads showed real character to come from behind and get the three points.”

Former Wolves man, Christophe, echoed the words of his teammate and was delighted to get himself on the scoresheet.

“It was a great feeling to score but the main thing is getting the three points,” added the defender.

“I managed to lose my marker and the ball was there for me perfectly to head at goal.

“After the game the fans were waiting for a ‘Chambo fist-pump’ but with him having gone off injured, me and Tommy did it in his honour!

“I was actually looking for him but Cressy was egging us on to do it. It’s Chambo’s thing though and hopefully he will be doing come the final whistle on Saturday.

“It’s another huge win and sets up perfectly for another tough game against Forest at the weekend,” added the defender.

“It’s probably been our best week of the season, considering the quality of the opponents we were playing.”
