Tyler Hromadka

Leeds United commemorated their Championship title with a 3-1 success at Derby County as Marcelo Bielsa’s team anticipated life amongst the elite.

Pablo Hernandez and Jamie Shackleton scored prior to a late Matt Clarke own goal finished up a 3-1 success at Pride Park for the Premier League-bound champions.

Unpleasant safeguarding from Leeds had actually permitted Derby to edge ahead after 54 minutes when Chris Martin’s shot deflected in off Luke Ayling.

However Hernandez had Leeds back on level terms within 2 minutes, striking from 18 yards after his preliminary effort was charged down.

Young midfielder Shackleton fired his first goal for Leeds after rupturing forward in the 75 th minute, prior to Clarke miscued into Derby’s net late on.

Leeds had actually been managed a guard of honour from Derby prior to the game, to mark their title success, with former England and Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney amongst those praising the champions.

Barnsley provided themselves hope of beating the drop after spectacular fifth-placed Nottingham Forest with a last-gasp winner at Oakwell.

Austrian forward Patrick Schmidt came off the bench in the 82 nd minute and scored in the 3rd minute of blockage time to offer Barnsley a 1-0 success.

The 3 points raised Barnsley off the foot of the Championship. They now should seek to beat promotion-chasing Brentford in Wednesday’s final round of regular-season games to have any chance of keeping up.
