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

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

In the Championship, England's second tier league, the top two finishers are promoted automatically while the teams that finish third through sixth enter a four-team tournament for the final spot.

Leeds took the lead in the second leg, at Elland Road, but in a topsy turvy brilliantly dramatic game Derby came back to win 4-2 on the night and 4-3 on aggregate, to grab their place in the final against Aston Villa.

Derby County moved a step closer to the Premier League after reaching the Championship playoff final with a 4-2 win over Leeds United on Wednesday, as they roared back from a two-goal aggregate deficit to win 4-3 over two legs.

Leeds boss Marcelo Bielsa will "listen to proposals" for him to stay at the club after a "painful" play-off semi-final defeat by Derby.

To the tune of Oasis" "Stop Crying Your Heart Out', Leeds fans sang: "All of the spies are hidden away, just try not to worry, you'll beat us some day".

Mateusz Klich then saw a deflected drive hit the crossbar but Derby levelled against the run of play on the stroke of half-time - substitute Marriott having an instant impact as he capitalised on a mix-up between Liam Cooper and Leeds goalkeeper Kiko Casilla.

Frank Lampard's team went in front in the tie thanks to goals from Mason Mount and Harry Wilson after the restart, but left-back Dallas netted a brilliant curling finish to square the match up again.

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. I'm not gonna lie.

"We were able to prepare for this game, we were prepared and we got a result".

Leeds, meanwhile, will spend its 16th consecutive season outside the Premier League, and it's a safe bet plenty of opposing fans are happy about it. Leeds has developed a corrosive reputation for a variety of reasons, and is bitter rivals with pretty much every member of the old guard of English soccer. He covers all sport from football, formula one, cricket, rugby, tennis, athletics, mma and wrestling.
