Elland Road was electric early on as Leeds took on Derby County last night.

The Leeds fans created a great noise at the beginning of the contest and the decibel levels went even higher when they took the lead through Stuart Dallas.

However, Derby’s goal just before half-time silenced the crowd.

He said: “We were saying at half-time it went completely flat. It was the Derby fans singing throughout half-time. Momentum and goals really do change the course of the game.”
