Marcelo Bielsa's men move five points clear at the top of the Championship with controversial Elland Road victory

BIELSA’S BOYS

The Whites boss admitted to sending a scout to watch Frank Lampard’s men train before the game

Leeds United cemented their position at the top of the Championship with a 2-0 win at Elland Road against Derby County.

On a day filled with controversy, Marcelo Bielsa shocked fans and pundits alike by admitting he DID send a scout to watch the Rams train before the Friday night clash.

Leeds fans were left delighted after a superb win

The theme of scandal carried into the game itself as the home side felt aggrieved they were not awarded a penalty inside the opening two minutes as Andre Wisdom bundled Ezgjan Alioski over in the box – only for offside to be given.

Leeds took the lead after 20 minutes of their SkyBet Championship clash with Derby at Elland Road.

Jack Clarke’s low ball into the near post was turned in by Kemar Roofe.

Bielsa’s side had deserved the lead and Clarke threatened to double the lead, firing just wide of the near post.


The lead was doubled shortly after the break when the starlet again rampaged down the right hand side, with his cross forcing Scott Carson into an early save.

The rebound fell kindly to Alioski, who crossed to Jack Harrison for a simple finish to end the game as a contest.
