Sheffield United's Mark Duffy certainly enjoyed the playoffs last night.

Leeds United and Derby County played out a remarkable Championship play-off semi-final on Wednesday night – much to the joy of Sheffield United's Mark Duffy.

Leeds went into the game leading 1-0 from the first leg, and took a commanding lead when Stuart Dallas made it 2-0 aggregate, scoring from close range.

 

However, Leeds gifted Derby a goal before half time through Jack Marriott, and within 15 minutes of the restart, the Rams were in front as Mason Mount and Harry Wilson scored.

Leeds hit back through Dallas once again, but Derby found the killer blow late on as Marriott grabbed his second and Derby's fourth, capitalising on Gaetano Berardi's red card.

Derby now go on to face Aston Villa in the Championship play-off final at Wembley Stadium later this month, with the winner joining Norwich City and Sheffield United in the Premier League.

Those two teams had their feet up last night, and Sheffield United midfielder Duffy took to Twitter last night to admit it felt good to watch the playoffs and not be involved – seemingly a little dig at former promotion rivals Leeds.

Sheffield United fans responded, mocking Leeds' demise as they celebrating being Yorkshire's number one club, admitting that watching the play-off felt even better for seeing Leeds flop.
