Leeds United will take promise from this season's emphatic victory over Derby County, as they prepare for the first leg of their Sky Bet Championship play-off semi-final at Pride Park, which has been a relatively happy hunting ground for the Whites, who have won two and drawn one of their last five visits to the home of the Rams.

Here's a look at the last five meetings between the two clubs at Pride Park:

Derby County 1 Leeds United 4 (Championship) – Saturday, August 11, 2018

Marcelo Bielsa's side stamped their authority on the early standings as they coasted past Frank Lampard's Derby on their first away trip of the campaign.

The Whites led within five minutes thanks to Mateusz Klich's 20-yard strike, before the Rams levelled just seven minutes later through a fierce Tom Lawrence free-kick.

United soon restored their advantage as Kemar Roofe notched his first goals of the season. Roofe converted a swooping header from a Barry Douglas delivery, before doubling his tally with a left-footed finish in to the roof of the net, evading the outstretched Scott Carson on the hour mark.

Gjanni Alioski capped an eye-catching performance with a fourth, powering home a header, to condemn Lampard to an unwelcome first home defeat.
