Jack Marriott crushes Leeds' promotion dream to cap off bonkers semi-final

Frank Lampard sings Leeds chant about himself after play-off victory

Leeds United stuck in English Championship for another year

Leeds went down to 10 men though in the 78th minute after Gaetano Berardi was dismissed after a second yellow card for a late lunge on Bradley Johnson.

Leeds United's season is over after a 4-2 defeat at home to Derby County in the play offs.

Several of Lampard's victorious side took the opportunity to reference the incident in January that led to Leeds being fined £200,000 after manager Marcelo Bielsa admitting spying on his opponents.

Leeds won the last top flight title before the advent of the Premier League in 1992, but suffered a financial implosion around the turn of the century and fell from its perch toward the top of the English game. And the Leeds fans chanted at Lampard about 'spygate'.

That put Leeds 2-0 up on aggregate but just before the break, a awful defensive mix-up between Leeds keeper Kiko Casilla and defender Liam Cooper allowed Derby substitute Marriott to convert into an empty net with his first touch of the game.

A monumental mix up between Leeds keeper Kiko Casilla and defender Liam Cooper saw the pair crash into each other, allowing the former Luton Town forward to slot into an empty net, and bring the Rams right back into the tie. "I'm not gonna lie maybe it is", he told Sky Sports, per the Mirror.

"Because I've heard a lot of people saying that we're crying about Spygate".

As the chant from Derby's away following suggested, Leeds appeared to be falling apart, only for Dallas to dart onto Klich's cute pass and clinically dispatch his second of the game.

Leeds fans knew who to blame for the loss on social media after the final whistle, with the Spanish stopper getting absolutely no love at all from supporters after the decisive moment in not just the semi-final, but their entire season.
