Manager Frank Lampard has full faith in his Derby County players that they can turn around the 1-0 deficit against Leeds United in the Sky Bet Championship Play-Off Semi-Final Second-Leg.
The Rams travel to Elland Road on Wednesday night knowing they need a positive result to turn around the result from the First-Leg.
Kemar Roofe’s goal at Pride Park Stadium on Saturday gave Leeds United the advantage, however, the manager knows his players are more than capable of turning around the scoreline.
“I believe in the players and the important thing is what we believe in-house,” he told RamsTV. “I have seen the players, I have seen them develop and I have seen them perform so well to get into the play-offs.
“With the squad that we have, with some young players in there, and a lot of things we have overcome this season, it is one more thing to try and overcome.
“I said to the players before the match on Saturday that you can lose a play-off tie, two games against Leeds, of course you can lose it, but you have to give everything because we have managed to get into sixth place in the league. We have to give everything and we can certainly win this.
“Belief is key and we have to take belief with us to Elland Road; going there believing that we can turn the result around. What will be will be.
“I said to the lads before Saturday ‘it’s play-offs, two games. Whatever happens today will not finish it’, and it didn’t. There will be times in games where we have lots of possession and we are on top and moments where we have to suffer a little bit. We are at half-time and that continues.”
The Rams will be backed by a sold-out away section after supporters quickly snapped up all tickets for the game.
It’s set to be an electric atmosphere at Elland Road and Lampard has paid tribute to the supporters.
“We are going to give everything and we appreciate their support as we have all year,” he said.
“The away support has been brilliant and we want them to be as loud and supportive as they can in what will be a big atmosphere.
“They can expect to see a squad, from our point of view, giving everything to try and turn this around for them.”
