Our Phil Hay hands out the scores at Pride Park.

Woke up from the nightmare of Ipswich. His handling was good, his judgement was much better and Derby failed to stretch him. 7/10
Always an outlet going forward and Lawrence got next to nothing out of him all game. Derbys front three were quiet. 8/10

Nice and calm on the ball, which helped Leeds to set and maintain a productive rhythm. There was no threat to Casilla. 8/10
Stepped in for Jansson and didnt miss a beat. One key early block from Nugent, who left the field in the second half having barely had a kick. 8/10
Not everyones preference at left-back but he attacked at will and Harry Wilson was little more than a body filling a shirt. 8/10
A brick wall between Derby's midfield and frontline, who struggled to link together properly. That's where the game was won. 8/10
Not vintage Hernandez but he was busy and annoying and contributed to a performance which gave Derby no peace or encouragement. 8/10
Injury took him out of the game before hed left a meaningful scratch on it. 5/10
Helped Phillips to boss Derby in the centre of the pitch and got through a huge amount of work, much of which might have gone unnoticed. 8/10
For all the difficult or ineffective days hes had, his weapons-grade cross for Roofes goal makes up for every bit of it. Sublime. 8/10
Hed been stretching Derby constantly before the goal but this is what Leeds want from him: right place, right time, no mistake. 8/10
An enforced substitution which Leeds benefited from. Shackleton's intensity and anticipation was superb. 9/10
It would have been nice if Leeds could have bagged a second goal but Clarke didn't get going. 5/10
Craig Pawson - Got in a tangle with the penalty which wasnt, not that Leeds were complaining in the end. 6/10
