Leeds United played out a 2-2 draw with Derby County at Elland Road in the Championship on Tuesday evening.

Leeds United head coach Steve Evans has revealed on LUTV how disappointed the players were after the match against Derby County.

The Whites played out a 2-2 draw with Derby at Elland Road in the Championship on Tuesday evening.

Jeff Hendrick put the visiting Rams in the lead in the 13th minute, but Leeds restored parity through defender Sol Bamba three minutes before the half-time interval.

Chris Wood made it 2-1 to Leeds in the 71st minute, but Tom Ince equalised for Derby just seven minutes later.

“It’s a sign of the times really of how far we have come in two months that we are in the dressing room and you could hear a pin drop in the dressing room, and people are gutted that we have drawn with Derby at home and they are planning to go top of the league,” Evans told LUTV.

Over the course of the 90 minutes at Elland Road, hosts Leeds had 42% of the possession, took 12 shots of which four were on target, and earned three corners.

Visitors Derby had 58% of the possession, took 13 shots of which four were on target, and earned nine corners.

Leeds are 12th in the Championship table at the moment with 31 points from 24 matches, nine points behind sixth-placed Ipswich Town.
