Derby 1-2 Leeds: Chris Wood strikes late to secure first win of the season
December 30, 2019 by admin
Chris Wood A superb late strike from Chris Wood gave Leeds victory at Derby to record their first win of the season.Wood’s 88th minute goal settled an absorbing contest that had seen Tom Adeyemi head Leeds in front only for Chris Martin to equalise with his 50th goal for Derby.It also completed another memorable visit to the iPro Stadium for head coach Uwe Rosler who had won on his previous two visits with Wigan.History might have been against Leeds but they started confidently and Wood fired just over from the edge of the box after a four-man passing move.Martin headed a free kick wide after Richard Keogh, with his forehead bandaged, halted a strong run from Wood and Leeds twice went close with Lewis Cook volleying wide from an angle before Wood just failed to connect with a pass from Liam Cooper.But the visitors got the goal they deserved in the 43rd minute when a short corner was lifted in by Alex Mowatt and Adeymi headed past Scott Carson from eight yards.Derby had hit back in their previous four Championship games and they were level in the 48th minute when George Thorne played Martin in and the striker turned on the edge of the area to send a left-footed shot past Marco Silvestri.But Wood more than made amends two minutes from time when he turned on the edge of the area to send a right foot shot flashing past Carson to seal Leeds’s first win of the campaign. 1
