Nigel Clough's dream of winning the one domestic trophy which eluded his father, Brian, was shattered as Birmingham defender Liam Ridgewell snatched an injury-time winner to give the Blues a 2-1 win in the FA Cup fifth round tie at Pride Park.

Jay McEveley's 54th minute strike put the Rams on course for a quarter-final spot for the first time in 11 years although Blues keeper Joe Hart will shoulder some of the blame.

But Scott Dann headed home a James McFadden corner to level matters and then Ridgewell popped up with the decider.
