Frank Lampards side trail by one goal ahead of Wednesdays play-off semi-final second leg at Elland Road, with a shot at Premier League promotion up for grabs

Warnock, the former Liverpool and England left-back, told Press Association Sport: I dont expect Derby to come flying out of the traps because I dont think they need to score an early goal. They just need to contain Leeds for as long as they can and be as concentrated as they can be.

Derby County beating Leeds United to seal their place in the Championship play-off final would be a greater comeback than Liverpool and Tottenham in the Champions League.

The Championship is such a competitive league it is always going to be tough to maintain that level. If he was to stay at Leeds next season, if they didnt get promoted, it is something he would definitely learn from.

Stephen Warnock predicts energetic start to play-off between former clubs

Forget the Reds stunning 4-0 victory over Barcelona and Spurs last-minute miracle against Ajax in the semi-finals of the biggest competition in club football, as Ian Holloway believes Frank Lampards men could pull of the biggest comeback in recent weeks if they overturn a 1-0 deficit to win at Elland Road.

"We are going to go there, we have experience in our team and a few young lads, I’ll be telling them what it is like to play in front of the Elland Road crowd. "If we go there on the front foot and put our stamp on the game, then the fans might turn and that’s something we would hope to do. "We have got to go there and take the emotion out of the game and not let the fans dictate the way we play and just play our game. "Like us, they are a good footballing side. We have got to go there and out-battle them and out-play them and hopefully get the win." During his time with Leeds United, he played a total of 140 games for the Whites, scoring 17 goals.   

Elland Road is a Great Stadium to Play in – Bradley Johnson

The Spygate rivals will go head-to-head again on Wednesday night with a Wembley clash against Aston Villa and shot at Premier League promotion up for grabs.

Marcelo Bielsas side are big favourites to go through after their 1-0 first leg victory at Pride Park – their third win over Derby this season.

But with top striker Kemar Roofe injured and with only one goal in it, the Rams are still very much in the tie.

If they are going to be as successful as they want to be, there will be more of this, and bigger and better games potentially if they go to the higher end of the Premier League or European football. 

And Holloway believes Lampards charges will eclipse the Champions League finalists remarkable comebacks if they fight their way to Wembley.

Speaking on Wednesdays Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast, the former QPR boss said: We all witnessed the most amazing set of comebacks in our football lives last week – the whole week was sensational.

Im not totally convinced – Leeds United close in on attacker transfer deal: Opinion

City looked like they were down and out [against Leicester] until Vincent Kompanys strike, then you had Liverpool against Barcelona, unbelievable, and then you had Tottenham beat Ajax with the last kick of the game. It was unbelievable!

Frank Lampard tells Derby to rise to play-off pressure and sink Leeds

But if Derby can go to Leeds and overcome a 1-0 deficit from the first leg, I would put that escape higher than all those others.

Because of Derbys history in recent years, they get to that big game and havent been able to do it. This could turn all of that around.

Its going to be electric: Leeds United fans show their love ahead of crucial Derby play-off clash

I think Derby can do anything they want to do, even against the best team in the county at that level.
