Portsmouth and Coventry were both relegated from the npower Championship after losing their penultimate games of the season.
Pompey had home advantage against Derby but went down 2-1. Jake Buxton put the Rams in front before Luke Varney levelled only for Steve Davies to restore the lead from the penalty spot.
Coventry, meanwhile, suffered a humbling 2-0 reverse to already-relegated Doncaster Rovers. A 0-0 draw appeared to be on the cards until the last 10 minutes, with James Hayter converting an 81st minute penalty following Richard Keogh's red card and Simon Gillett netting just before the close.
