Play-offs reaction…

Frank Lampard revealed he had a hunch two-goal Jack Marriott would play a starring role in his side’s thrilling Sky Bet Championship play-off semi-final win at Leeds.

Marriott hauled his side level at 1-1 on the night 33 seconds after stepping off the substitutes’ bench shortly before half-time.

Derby then stunned Leeds at a partisan Elland Road with further goals in the second half through Mason Mount and Harry Wilson’s penalty.

Leeds responded through Stuart Dallas’s second of the night, which made it 3-3 on aggregate, but Marriott’s late winner sealed Derby’s place at Wembley in the final.

“The Jack Marriott one is a question I get asked. I know the fans want to see him playing,” said Lampard.

“Jack’s been really good for us this season. I just felt in the last couple of months, in terms of what I really want from Jack, what can make him the player he was tonight, is the absolute ethic to do everything as an all-round striker.

“He’s not the tallest. He’s strong in terms of stockiness, but he needs to work without the ball, to have a hunger and desire constantly.

“I said to him before the game I had a feeling. I said I know you’re upset, but I have a feeling that something’s going to come from you today.”
