Will both teams get a draw again?
When will George Thorne get his season ending injury?
Will Chris Wood's penalty land on the pitch mid game?
All these could be answered and more, as this shapes up to be an interesting match.

Hopefully we do good, we played well against Birmingham and while we could have done a bit more in midfield to help with defending the attacking play looked really good so we should be able to take that into this game. Leeds look alright too although at home we should have an advantage, even though they have Uwe Rosler...

2-0 Derby

I expect Leeds to sit and let us play infront of their bank of 10.

I'm hoping that Butterfield, as he will definitely sign, and maybe Antonio :animatedf:, will give us the edge that we've been lacking.

We'll see. Rosler was always a pain in the arse for us before, he knew how to get a result against us with Wigan.

Oh shit, I forgot Rosler is there now. Don't mess up our joint mission to draw every game!

Probably lose. Can't see us keeping it tight against Derby's front line. At least Cook's back and Murphy back fit means we have a lot of options to choose from - plus the week off after a busy schedule. We're in the best position we've been for a long time to go to Pride Park and win, but I'd still say we're clear underdogs.

1-1 draw. Been impressed with Leeds going forward from what I've seen.

It'll be another snoozefest in front of the cameras. 0-0.

Why isn't Sky Sports 1 being renamed Sky Sports Leeds? That's all they seem to be showing on that channel the last few weeks.

0-1 Leeds, good header but Derby defence looks shite. They are still yet to demonstrate anything this season that makes me think they will be anywhere near the top two. Perhaps they will surprise in the second half. Wouldn't bet on it though. Clement being out of a top after 20 games isn't likely just yet but it's not implausible. Something is missing, big time.

So far so good. See Bristol City (A).

Martin scores with a nice finish to make it 1-1, perhaps unsurprisingly these two sides are on course to draw a game.

Very watchable game, Derby have increased their urgency and threatening sporadically. Game is open enough for either side to score though Leeds probably would have to do it from a counter.

Edit; Great cross from Antenucci, Wood heads over the bar, should have scored.

When you're chasing the win you bring on Shotton, lol.

Absolutely brilliant goal from Wood, gets the goal he should have had from earlier chances.

Poor Derby, no wins in their last 8 games. Will be 9 points adrift if either of Ipswich or Brighton win today.

About time. Nice one Derby.

Great first half, thought Derby were gonna kick on after their goal but after weathering that it was open again. What a goal from Wood who wasn't at his best though and Cook outstanding.

Oh come on. You can't count last season in this seasons form.

Clement has got some real thinking and learning to do. We could be in the bottom 3 come cop today.

Still a long way to go but we look really poor. I don't think we look too bad defensively but there seems to be no connection between defence and midfield.

massive result, first win at Derby since 2002

the times are a changing, we broke Derbys hoodoo last season over us and now we've done another

Chris Woods is something else, it's a joy to have a guy capable of scoring from headers or long range, Lewis Cook bossed the midfield 1st half

Good performance going into the international break. Thought Leeds were the better team except a spell immediately after half time. Wood is starting to find his confidence now, 3 in 3.

End of last season you stopped winning games. This season you've gone 6 without a win in all comps. You're still not winning games. It's all relative, clearly.

But it isn't. Do you think when anyone interviews clement they say "so Paul, that's no wins in 9 now"?

Rosler always beats Derby. Wigan best us last season then he didn't win again until he got sacked.

Saying all that. Thought Leeds throughly deserved it. We seem to have no set way of playing or tempo. Worrying a little but hoping it's more to do with just settling in the news guys incl clement. Long way to go yet.
