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

That is something that is going to have to change if the Derbyshire outfit are to walk out at Wembley.

Derby scored shortly before half-time through Jack Marriott's strike, which halved the deficit.

They will meet Aston Villa in the Sky Bet Championship play-off final, belatedly exacting revenge on Leeds United after a season of dispute.

The first goal of the night was the result of a goalkeeping howler from Kiko Casilla, as the former Real Madrid 'keeper rushed off his line like an over-excited child who constantly holds down triangle on Federation Internationale de Football Association 19, before fluffing his clearance, handing Marriott a goal on a silver platter.

Derby, managed by Lampard, beat Leeds 4-2 in the second leg of their playoff semifinal on Thursday (NZT) and advanced 4-3 on aggregate.

"We conceded in the first half and the opponent was unsafe".

The score remained level as the teams fought tooth and nail to regain the advantage, but it was Frank Lampard's team who eventually got the all important goal, as Marriott once again stepped up to dink a shot over Casilla after a marauding run from captain Richard Keogh in the 85th minute.

The Rams finished the regular season like a train to snatch the final spot in the end of season lottery, but they failed to capitalise on home advantage in the first leg, and have it all to do against Marcelo Bielsa's men in Yorkshire.
