Marcelo Bielsa’s Leeds United lost a Championship play-off semi-final against Derby after a 2-4 defeat on Wednesday night, despite going into the game with a 1-0 lead from the first leg.
Frank Lampard’s Derby County mounted a thrilling comeback at Elland Road to painfully deny their hosts the opportunity of promotion to the Premier League and exact some sort of revenge for the ‘Spygate’ saga.
Eleven cards were handed out in a highly emotional game that saw both sides reduced to ten men by the end of ninety minutes.

Despite two goals from Stuart Dallas Leeds have lost in the play-offs to Derby. A definite case of Derby Does Dallas. #LEEDER

Bielsa's night has just got worse. If you're still in and around the area, Bielsa has lost his dog. He's clearly not very good at holding on to a lead.
