芒特和托莫里助德比郡杀入温布利的附加赛决赛

有两名切尔西外租球员效力,并且由蓝军传奇兰帕德执教的德比郡在埃兰路进行的英冠附加赛半决赛中完成不可思议的逆转,杀入温布利的决赛。

芒特进球,托莫里坐镇后防,阿什利·科尔最后阶段替补出场,德比郡在总比分0-2落后的情况下最终以4-3逆转。他们将与特里和亚伯拉罕的阿斯顿维拉争夺一个英超的席位。这是英冠附加赛33年的历史上第一次有球队在首回合主场比赛输球的情况下晋级。

在约克郡的这场半决赛荡气回肠,四天前在米德兰兹的首回合比赛中,贝尔萨的球队取得1-0的领先。本场比赛,德比郡采用菱形中场的4-4-2体系,这让贝尔萨措手不及。芒特出任中前卫,而托莫里出任中后卫,这一改变在开场后让利兹联非常不适应。

但是,主队很快适应下来,上半场进行到一半的时候,达拉斯的进球让他们扩大总比分的优势。卡尔文·菲利普斯的任意球击中立柱反弹,达拉斯补射破门。

利兹联随后还有一次射门被横梁挡住。上半场结束前,德比郡被迫做出一次换人调整,但这次换人却有奇效,马里奥特出场后第一次触球便破门。

The Rams were rampant at the start of the second period and scored twice in 12 minutes to turn the tie on its head. Mount put them ahead on the night seconds after the restart with a brilliant goal, the 20-year-old’s finish even more impressive as he slipped just beforehand and teetered off-balance as he struck the ball. It was his 11th goal of a productive season in the English second tier and his celebration to shush the Leeds faithful was typical of someone who’s spent so much time in Chelsea blue.

Things got even better for Lampard’s side just before the hour mark as they edged ahead for the first time in the semi-final when Harry Wilson stayed cool to convert a penalty, though the night’s drama was far from over. Derby’s lead lasted just a few minutes before Dallas restored parity, ensuring a grandstand finale.

Leeds went down to 10 men with 12 minutes remaining and that proved the incentive for the Rams to push forward in search of a winner. Wilson hit the post but Marriott went one better with a lovely finish to seal the victory. Another young player on loan from the Blues - Izzy Brown - was thrown on in the final moments for just his second appearance of an injury-hit campaign but he was unable to prevent Derby from progressing and it was Leeds tears, not Lampard's, on the Elland Road turf at the final whistle.

It means three Chelsea Academy loanees and three former Chelsea legends will head to Wembley on Monday 27 April for an intriguing play-off final.
