Frank Lampard: Derby County can do far better

Frank Lampard: Derby County can do far better

Leeds United beat Derby County 1-0 today in the first leg of their Championship play-off semi-final at Pride Park.

West Brom had a penalty shout of their own turned down as Mason Holgate took a tumble and, to make matters worse, lost Gayle for the remainder of the match and the second leg to leave Villa in control ahead of Tuesday's return at The Hawthorns.

But amid incensed appeals from Leeds, the referee overturned his decision moments after consulting with linesman Eddie Smart and instead awarded a free-kick in favour of Marcelo Bielsa's men.

Duane Holmes is available after coming off with 20 minutes left at Pride Park.

I'm not sure if it's a penalty - I think it's one of those you can get or not get.

"I did not have a clear view of the penalty".

Israel reopens 2 crossings with Gaza Strip after 8-day closure
This week's demonstrations were seen as a key test for a fragile truce agreed between Gaza's Islamist rulers Hamas and Israel . That fighting, which involved Hamas rocket attacks and Israeli airstrikes, left 29 Palestinians and four Israelis dead.

"Contact is minimal but there is a foul there and I don't understand why it was changed".

"For the linesman to decide by himself and for the referee to accept that decision, making him completely wrong, is really hard to understand". "The linesman will say he thought it wasn't [clear], but the referee gave it, so work that one out".

"We were more positive in the second half and created chances, but we need to be better on the ball and be more confident on Wednesday (in the second leg)".

"We all know the intensity of this game - it's big between the clubs and that ramped up in January for obvious reasons", Derby manager Frank Lampard said.

"The Champions League games this week are a warning of what could happen", he added.

Roofe, who had struck in both league clashes against Derby this season, collected a fine cross from winger Jack Harrison and tucked the ball past Derby goalkeeper Kelle Roos in the 55th minute to give his team a slender advantage in the tie. They are lessons for us to learn. No matter what the celebrations are out there, it's half time.
