Derby County will be desperate to pick themselves up after a narrow defeat at Pride Park last time out, with the return leg at Elland Road deciding who makes the trip to Wembley.
Frank Lampard has done magnificently to get Derby to where they are in what is his first managerial job, but all of his work could come to nothing if the Rams fail to secure promotion.
Interestingly, Derby fan Kian Malhi wasn’t a fan of Frank Lampard’s decision to start David Nugent in the first leg of the play-off semi-final and you can’t blame him as he offered absolutely nothing up top.
Derby need to have their best players on the field if they are to get a result at Elland Road, and David Nugent isn’t one of them. Nugent, who is valued at £1.8 million (by Transfermarkt), has done very little to suggest he deserves to play a big part in the Rams’ play-off bid, with Mason Bennett and Jack Marriott more deserved of a chance in the side.
Derby fans, do you believe Nugent is the right man to lead your line in the play-offs? Join in with the discussion by commenting down below!
