Soccer-Derby fight back to beat Leeds and set date with Villa
Derby County roared back from a two-goal aggregate deficit to defeat Leeds United 4-3 over two legs as a 4-2 away win on Wednesday secured their spot in the Championship playoff final against Aston Villa. With a place in the Premier League at stake, Leeds took the lead in the 24th minute when Kalvin Phillips launched a free kick into the box which bounced out off the post and Stuart Dallas reacted well to slot the ball home from close range.

That put Leeds 2-0 up on aggregate but just before the break, a defensive mix-up between Leeds keeper Kiko Casilla and defender Liam Cooper allowed Derby substitute Jack Marriott to convert into an empty net with his first touch of the game. A minute after the interval Mason Mount put Derby 2-1 up with a fine finish after a clever touch from Harry Wilson, who made it 3-1 on the night with a 58th-minute penalty.

Yet Leeds were able to get back on level terms on aggregate with a fine effort from Dallas in the 62nd minute. 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.

Wilson hit the post for Frank Lampard's Derby in the 84th but moments later Marriott grabbed the decisive goal with a clinical finish after good work from Richard Keogh. (Reporting by Simon Evans Editing by Toby Davis)
