'If It's Football, It's Vital'

LUFC View from the opposition manager

Derby County boss Nigel Clough described their 3-1 win over Leeds United as outstanding.

Clough witnessed his young side end Leeds three match winning run, with 17-year-old Will Hughes pulling the strings in the Derby midfield.

Speaking on the Derby County official website, "The performance was once again outstanding and it`s another brilliant three points for us.

"We`re delighted with the win, especially when you consider our young side was up against a very experienced Leeds team today.

"We weren`t as fluent as we would like to have been during the game, but that`s down to Leeds more than anything.

"They stopped us playing at times but we worked our way through that, especially in the second half by putting five men in midfield."


Leeds rarely looked like a side that should have come into the game full of confidence after successive wins against Crystal Palace, Leicester City and Huddersfield Town.

Derby were ahead inside the opening twenty minutes when Conor Sammon turned Lee Peltier inside out after a marauding run by Will Hughes.

Leeds equalised on the stroke of half time with their first meaningful chance when Paul Green netted against his former side from close range.

The goal did lift Leeds, who started the second half on top. Ryan Hall came very close for Leeds when his shot looked to be on its way in until Michael Jacobs somehow kept his effort out with a goal line clearance.

Derby were back in front when Luciano Becchio made an hash of his attempted headed clearance, only diverting the ball into the path of Richard Keogh and his shot was turned in by defender Jake Buxton.

Leeds tried to find an equaliser with David Norris and El Hadji Diouf going close with efforts whilst Tom Lees saw his header hit the post.

Derby clinched the win in injury time when Ben Davies curled in an effort from just inside the area to keep up their good run against Leeds, having now won the last eight meetings between the two.

Outstanding? Really? He must have been at a different game to me then. Derby were as poor as us for the vast majority of the game and we both looked like the mid-table teams we currently are. Theo Robinson had an absolute shocker given all the hype about him. We'll still finish above them as usual though. Onwards and upwards ... MOT
