Strap yourselves in. This could be a doozie.
Derby County arrives in West Yorkshire today with an eye at staying near the top of the table at Leeds United's expense. The Whites are looking to continue their streak of retaining points and complete their unbeaten December. It could be that Leeds has realized that if you save up enough points, you could exchange them for promotion... almost like trading in one's skee ball tickets at the arcade.
Don't look for many changes in this match as the Whites will be using the same approach as seen against Forest:
Evans: "We'll be ready for Derby. A lot of the players who've played today will play again. There can't be eight or nine changes."— Phil Hay (@PhilHayYEP) December 27, 2015
The Whites, already behind the 8-ball playing a second game in just over 48 hours, will be trying to defy the odds. Even though Leeds left Pride Park with 3 in their pocket when the two clubs last met in August, it is Derby that holds the odds in their favor, winning 3 of the last 5 matches at Elland Road.
