Leeds United stuck in English Championship for another year

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

Earlier in the season Leeds were fined £200,000 for breaching the EFL's code of conduct when they sent a member of staff to watch a Derby training session before a Sky Bet Championship match between the two clubs in January.

Frank Lampard praised his Derby players after securing a place in the Championship play-off final as his side gained revenge for "Spygate" in mid-season in the best possible way.

At the time Leeds were leading the league and Bielsa revealed that he had spied on every team in England's second tier and it seemed to affect Derby manager Frank Lampard around the game, that Leeds won.

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.

The incident prompted the following chant from Leeds fans in Lampard's direction, to the tune of Oasis's Stop Crying Your Heart Out.

That put Leeds 2-0 up on aggregate but just before the break, a bad 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.

After the game Lampard was asked about the chants and the former Chelsea midfielder said, "Maybe it is sweeter because of the chants". I'm not going to lie maybe it is. "We've prepared and got a result".

Their semifinal finished 2-2 on aggregate. I haven't thought about Spygate for a long time.

Mount hauled Derby level in a tie turned on its head 38 seconds into the second half, digging out a fabulous finish to cap a solo run, and the woefully erratic Casilla was similarly helpless when Cooper pulled back Mason Bennett to concede a penalty that Wilson converted. He obviously hates YOUR football team and has no interest in synchronised swimming.
