In the first 45 seconds it looked like we were awarded a penalty and rightfully so, but the linesman saw different and the ref changed his decision. Drama in a minute!
Leeds press forward and are looking lively, then the 20th minute strikes, Jack Clarke works wonders as Derby fail to deal with a Pablo Hernandez corner, beating his man out on the right flank and whipping in a cross which Kemar Roofe gleefully knocks in at the near post making it 1 – 0 to the Whites.
That might have torn it from a Derby perspective.
A long cross is not dealt with by keeper Scott Carson, who panicked and knocked the ball into the path of Ezgjan Alioski. Alioski scuffs a cross back to Jack Harrison who cannot miss from all of about two yards to clinch a 2 – 0 lead.
Bielsa spies on the loose.
After numerous rumours and reports, there has been allegations Marcelo Bielsa sent a spy to Derby County’s football ground. He admits, he has indeed sent a spy to look at Derby play and has been using spy-gate tactics for almost a year!
Investigations are currently underway by Derbyshire Police collaborating with the FA as to Whether any disciplinary action will be taken. Let’s not forget teams have been doing this for decades, normally through journalists and other means.
Leeds manage to pull a win tonight, finishing their 3 loss streak and staying top of the table.
Questions will be asked by Stoke on the 19th and let’s hope we don’t get found out like we have in previous seasons at this crucial time of our campaign.
