Leeds United: Whites fans react on Twitter to Frank Lampard’s play-off failure with Derby County

Leeds United: Whites fans react on Twitter to Frank Lampard’s play-off failure with Derby County - Championship

When Frank Lampard wildly celebrated Derby County’s 4-2 victory at Elland Road on May 15th, he must have thought that he was on the verge of greatness in his debut managerial season.

Yet given his exuberance, the former Chelsea player knew that he would have to back up the result in the play-off final against Aston Villa or face a backlash online from Leeds’ supporters.

Although the Rams would have been confident about their chances of prevailing going into the clash at Wembley Stadium, a slow start to proceedings resulted in Anwar El-Ghazi giving their opponents a deserved lead on the stroke of half-time.

Unable to get into any sort of rhythm, Lampard’s side conceded a second in the 59th minute which left them with a mountain to climb to save their promotion hopes.

Despite Martin Waghorn’s deft little flick reducing Derby’s deficit with 10 minutes left to play, they were unable to take the final to extra time as Villa hung on to claim a place in the Premier League.

Having failed to take his side to the promised land, Lampard inevitably received his fair share of stick from some Leeds supporters on Twitter after the game.

With the Rams now facing another season in the Championship, the club’s rivalry with Leeds is set to continue in the 2019/20 campaign.
