Leeds United stuck in English Championship for another year

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

Both sides finished with 10 men.

Leeds went into the second leg of this play-off semi-final with a one goal advantage thanks to Kemar Roofe's victor at Pride Park, but Leeds being Leeds, they crumbled when it mattered most, allowing Derby back into the game.

There was an added measure of revenge for Lampard though following a bizaare incident in January when Leeds counterpart Marcelo Bielsa admitted to sending a member of staff to spy on Derby's training methods shortly before facing them in a league match. And the Leeds fans chanted at Lampard about 'spygate'.

It is the first time in the history of the play-offs that a side has reached the Championship play-off final after losing the first leg at home.

With Leeds 2-0 up on aggregate, Derby pushed for an equaliser, which they eventually found on the stroke of halftime through Jack Marriot.

The were jubliant scenes amongst the Derby players at the final whistle, but Lampard insisted attention would quickly turn to their Wembley date with Villa.

In the 58th minute, Derby's Harry Wilson converted a penalty kick after teammate Mason Bennett was brought down in the box by Leeds defender Liam Cooper.

Derby's Duane Holmes also shared a video on Twitter - which was shared by the verified club account - of Lampard and his players leading a rendition of Leeds' chant.

Leeds fans knew who to blame for the loss on social media after the final whistle, with the Spanish stopper getting absolutely no love at all from supporters after the decisive moment in not just the semi-final, but their entire season. I'm not gonna lie.

"I heard a lot of people saying that we were crying about Spygate but I haven't thought about Spygate for a long time".

They will face Aston Villa on May 27 at Wembley for a place in the Premier League.

Before the two-legged tie with Derby, he had said he would not speculate on his future: "I would never say that if we stayed in the Championship I won't stay here, otherwise you say the importance of this club is linked to the division in which it plays".
