Third Defeat For Addicks
Derby looked home and hosed when they took a 3-0 lead just past the hour mark on Tuesday but Charlton hit back with two goals in three minutes to set up a grandstand finish.
Jamie Ward scored twice, one a penalty, with the Rams other goal coming from Craig Bryson. Danny Green hit a 30 yard screamer then set up the second for Yann Kermorgant but Derby ran out 3-2 winners.
Charlton's continuing sluggish start to games will be a concern to Chris Powell and he will be looking to put things right at Ipswich on Saturday.
He will be giving serious thought to his line-up for Saturday's trip to Suffolk.
