Playoff First Leg: Derby 0-1 Leeds


Leeds will host Frank Lampard’s Derby at Elland Road tonight, with a trip to Wembley on the line. The winner of this two-legged tie will take on Aston Villa, who beat West Bromwich Albion in dramatic fashion last night, winning on penalties after extra time.

Leeds will hope that this match doesn’t go to penalties, given the absolute shoddiness that the Leeds penalty takers have shown as of late. Yeah, Leeds went over a year without winning a penalty, but they’ve won a few more this season and it really would have helped this season if they players could have converted some of those spot kicks.

Patrick Bamford will have to lead the line against Derby after Kemar Roofe was ruled out with a calf problem. Bamford has had an up and down season at Leeds this year, and he will go a long way towards justifying his transfer fee with a good performance tonight. If anything, perhaps his shame for getting banned for diving against Villa a few weeks ago should motivate him to score a few goals.

Leeds will probably otherwise not be changed very much, with Jamie Shackleton getting the start over the injured Adam Forshaw, which is fine because Shackleton looked better against Derby in the first leg anyway at the position he was asked to play.

Here’s hoping that Leeds can see this second-leg out and make the trip south to London.
