Jim White has revealed on talkSPORT that he was 'thrilled' to see Derby County nick a point off Leeds United on Saturday.

Chris Martin grabbed a last-gasp equaliser as Marcelo Bielsa's side were held to a 1-1 draw with Derby at Elland Road.

Keogh is often the pantomime villain for Leeds fans after the Irish defender contributed to United being knocked out of the playoff semi-finals by the Rams last season.

The 33-year-old defender was given quite a hostile reception among the home support at times during Saturday's stalemate, something that didn't impress White.

 

He said on talkSPORT: "One thing disturbed me, though, the abuse Leeds fans dished out to Keogh. He took it in his stride and at the end he was the first to jump on Chris Martin when he equalised, and I was thrilled to see it.

“The bucket mouths at Leeds, I was happy that they only went home with one point instead of three.”

Nine times out of ten, Leeds, who missed a second-half penalty at 1-0, would've been easy winners of that game.

Bielsa's side were truly dominant for virtually the entire match, but it was a case of the same problems recurring for the Whites, who suffered with taking chances last season too.

Despite the two dropped points, United remain top of the Championship, with Derby way back in 18th.
