Leeds United 2 - 0 Derby County

Elland Road
Leeds
1945
11 January 2018

After the sobering match at Pride Park, back at the start of the season, Derby look to make amends on Friday night in the return fixture.

Looks like Harry Wilson will not be available as is the same for Scott Malone.

Matches between the two teams have always been a feisty affair for a rivalry that harks back to the 70s. Whether the feistiness manifests itself on Friday depends on the officials. Personally I'm in favour of feisty.

Derby have won 5 of their last 5 matches at Elland Road and in fairness have never really felt that threatened by the 'MightyLeeds' until,that fateful,day in August where I watched afar from sunnier climes.

Teams to follow:
Carson
Wisdom
Bryson
Tomori
Keogh ©
Mount
Lawrence
Marriott
Evans
Holmes
Lowe

Substitutes: Roos, Bogle, Huddlestone, Malone, Jozefzoon, Waghorn, Nugent



For Harj - esteemed Leeds United poster but above all a football fan RIP

Igor, I would hesitate to give last night too much emphasis. We were completely outplayed and Leeds look really promising. But....

There is a long way to go and as we know better than anyone, top in January don't count. All to play for yet.....

Where did the team that was top of the championship in mid-January in each of the last 10 seasons finish at the end of the season?

PS Leeds definitely will be top after next weekend as we are 4 points ahead of second.

That is real bad luck to have chosen a father from Leeds. Still, I see you have escaped to sunnier climes.

At least in LA he can support the Rams.

Not sure what the relevance that has to being top of the league in January...

Nevertheless Interesting comment given you didn’t know my father who was well respected and liked by all who knew him. Volunteered for the South African army to oppose the N@zis as an underage 17 year old and served for 7 years until after the end of the war. He expressed gratitude to the Americans for helping him out to defeat them. A true hero and wonderful father and husband for 65 years.

I actually did know one Direby fan in LA. Haven’t seen him in years, I hope he survived that Prem season.

Ive seen a few derby shirts in and around Auckland since I've been here. Not seen a single Leeds one yet. Probably something to do with sheep.

We're much bigger in the north of the world. Went to a sports shop in reykjavik a few years back. They had Leeds up there with the other big clubs. Scandinavia is like our second home.

We have a FinlandRam, and Leeds have no foothold whatsoever in the Outer Hebrides - which is the true benchmark of a global club

Not saying that there aren't Derby fans in Scandinavia

By the same stretch I'm certain we have at least one poster from Australia. But it's not really a competition is it?

Yeah my post was pretty tongue in cheek. With my own eyes, I've seen 3 separate people wearing derby shirts, myself makes 4 and I've also seen a car with D.C.F.C "the rams" on its number plate surround. Not seen a single man city, Chelsea or arsenal shirt that I can remember. Seen the odd man utd and Liverpool one. Im sure if i could be bothered I could find an nz Leeds supporters page on a social network website 👍

If it helps I see Leeds shirts and license plates all the time. But then again I do live in Leeds.
