Frank Lampard stunned as Leeds smash four goals at Derby

After last week's excellent outing against Stoke City, there wasn't really much expectation that today's game against Lampard's Derby County would be much of the same, yet it was.

Lampard will now be charged to do better than that and take Derby back to the top flight for the first time since 2008, when the club was relegated with just 11 points.

A double from Kemar Roofe and goals from Mateusz Klich and Ezgjan Alioski gave Leeds a second victory of the Sky Bet Championship season.

"I have spoken before about it being important to have options across all areas and Scott provides another one for us, but I think it's also important to mention that Max Lowe has been fantastic in the games so far".

Derby were presented with a good chance in the third minute when a mishit effort from Martyn Waghorn found Mason Mount in the area but the Chelsea loanee could only fire his shot wide.

Unite the Right said on its website that supporters will march from a nearby subway station to Lafayette Park at 5pm (2100 GMT). It comes on the first anniversary of last year's rally, which led to the death of one counter-protester.

It was a superb strike but Derby were level in the 12th minute when Lawrence sent a free-kick from just outside the box over the wall and through the hands of Bailey Peacock-Farrell who should have done better. Tom Lawrence's direct running was too much for Luke Ayling, the right-back bringing down the Welsh worldwide outside the corner of the penalty area.

When Tom Lawrence's free-kick was badly misjudged by 21-year-old goalkeeper Bailey Peacock-Farrell the Rams were swiftly level, but Ezgjan Alioski's flawless left-wing cross was headed in by Kemar Roofe to restore the Leeds lead.

But he feels it will be interesting to see how Leeds cope away from home, where Derby should draw energy from the crowd, and has urged his players to make the most of it. We went into the game under no illusions and knew it would be hard for us.

The reprieve was only temporary and two goals in four minutes swung the game decisively in the visitors' favour.
