Hameur Bouazza´s heavily-deflected 77th-minute strike looked set to seal three rare points for the Cottagers but Villa struck back just two minutes later with a superb close-range header.
Villa had put Derby ahead in the 10th minute when he deflected home Dean Leacock´s drive, but Diomansy Kamara equalised for the visitors with a header 14 minutes later.
