Derby County vs Leeds (By: Pikachu)
In Championship play-offs semi finals second match will be played at Pride Park Stadium, Derby.
Derby County will host Leeds United in first leg of semi-finals. Derby managed to win in their last chance for promotion play-offs in last league match against WBA, West Bromwich didnt needed points then cause they secured their promotion play-offs earlier. The score was 1-1 until 70th min when Bennett scored leading goal and 3 mins later Wilson was precise from penalty kick and concluded the game's final score, 3-1.
Leeds failed to win their last 4 league matches and finished as 3rd team on table with 83 points, 6 points less than direct promotion. I dont know what rly happened with them that last games, idk if their players were injured but they had some easy matches for their quality and could win, but here is that what it so they play now in play-offs for promotion.
Derby is missing their defenders Cole (9/0), Davies (5/0) and Forsyth (13/0) while midfielders Bryson (28/3), Holmes (25/2), King (4/0) and attacker Waghorn (36/9) all remain questionable. Guests will miss only forward Bamford (22/9).
Leeds are slight favourites in this game, Derby is missing some players and by my opinion Leeds have more quality to play in PL next year. I think the teams know each other very well and here will be goals too, like in first game now where AV is leading 2-1 heh.
