“Give that man a knighthood”: Some Derby fans shower praises on this star after 1-1 draw vs Leeds + Match Report


Derby County vs Leeds United report: Derby County match report

Chris Martin scored a stoppage-time equaliser as Derby County snatched an unlikely point from a 1-1 draw at Leeds United.

Leeds had dominated virtually the entire game but paid for their profligacy in front of goal – and a missed penalty from Mateusz Klich – as Martin scored a last-gasp leveller. Derby County were second best in every department, but would be mightily happily with a point.

Marcelo Bielsa’s Whites took the lead in the 20th minute, but it came courtesy of Derby’s Max Lowe putting the ball into his own net. They peppered the visitors’ goal constantly and Leeds could have been 3-0 up inside 20 minutes – Tom Huddlestone was forced to make a last-ditch clearance while Jack Harrison had good efforts blocked.

Harrison then went close again but his drive was saved by Kelle Roos, while Patrick Bamford should have done better when put through on goal. Derby didn’t improve after the break and should have been 2-0 down but Bamford could only direct Dallas’ low cross onto the post from close range.

Leeds then had a golden chance to put clear daylight between the two sides when they were awarded a spot-kick after Matt Clarke and Scott Malone combined to clumsily bring Bamford down in the box. Klich stepped up to take the resultant spot-kick but failed to convert.

It got a bit nervy in the end for the home side, and the Whites’ worst nightmare came true as Derby found an equaliser through Chris Martin in the injury time.

Despite being dominated by Leeds, Phillip Cocu and co. would be really happy with the point. After the 1-1 draw at Elland Road, here’s how some Derby fans reacted on Twitter.
