Leeds United fans on Twitter have admitted that Frank Lampard has made a good comeback after the Derby County manager reacted to chants aimed at him by his play-off rivals. 

The Rams boss, who was reacting to 'stop crying Frank Lampard' chants, stated that as a Chelsea player he had a rivalry with Leeds but he didn't come up against them because they weren't in the Premier League, as quoted by Derby Telegraph.  

 

Ever since Spygate exploded in January, there has been a rivalry that has grown between the Yorkshire club and the Midlands outfit. 

On Wednesday night, there will be a winner because one team will be reaching the play-off final, which will be contested at Wembley later on this month. 

Marcelo Bielsa's side hold a one-goal lead over Lampard's side after Kemar Roofe's separated both sides in the first-leg at Pride Park on Saturday. 

Here is a selection of Leeds United fans on Twitter reacting to Lampard's savaging comments about his play-off rivals: 

If Leeds can avoid defeat in front of their own supporters then they will be planning for trips to the capital where they will face Dean Smith's Aston Villa.

The Whites beat Villa at their own ground in December when they overturned their two-goal lead. During the reverse fixture at Elland Road, they both shared the spoils in a highly controversial encounter.
