Have your say

Second-half strike from Jake Buxton and Ben Davies halted Leeds United’s resurgent run as Derby County ran out 3-1 winners at Pride Park.

Buxton’s 12-yard finish and an injury-time effort from Davies settled a scrappy but competitive match, ending Leeds’ sequence of three straight wins in the process.

Paul Green’s goal seconds before half-time – replying to Conor Sammon’s early strike for Derby – briefly changed the flow of the game and Leeds controlled the initial stages of the second half, with Ryan Hall and Ross McCormack both going close.
