Derby County Players Mock Leeds United For Spygate After Elland Road Win

Derby team news: Lampard hopeful of having two stars available vs Leeds

Frank Lampard sings Leeds chant about himself after play-off victory

Leeds were fined for sending a spy to watch Derby train earlier this season in what became known as the spygate saga.

Derby County will look to book a spot in the Championship play-off final, when they head to Elland Road looking to overturn a 1-0 deficit in the second leg of their semi-final against Leeds United on Wednesday evening, and they are hopeful of having two key men available, according to their official website.

There is no love lost between these two teams after plenty of controversy throughout the campaign, so Lampard will love for his Rams' side to end Leeds' chances of a return to the Premier League.

That put Leeds 2-0 up on aggregate but just before the break, a awful defensive mix-up between Leeds keeper Kiko Casilla and defender Liam Cooper allowed Derby substitute Marriott to convert into an empty net with his first touch of the game.

Lampard, who will come up against his former Chelsea team mate John Terry, who is assistant coach at Villa, hailed the approach of his players.

"Because I've heard a lot of people saying that we're crying about Spygate". "I thought we were still in the game then but I'll admit that goal came at just the right moment".

Their semifinal finished 2-2 on aggregate. "We've prepared and got a result".

Derby scored a minute after half time to level things up before Harry Wilson's penalty made it 3-2.

As the chant from Derby's away following suggested, Leeds appeared to be falling apart, only for Dallas to dart onto Klich's cute pass and clinically dispatch his second of the game.

Leeds' Champions League hero Matteo and ex-Leeds left-back Parker both posted on Twitter ahead of the hugely important clash, which last night also saw West Brom knocked out by Aston Villa. He covers all sport from football, formula one, cricket, rugby, tennis, athletics, mma and wrestling.
