Midfielder Bradley Johnson is confident Derby County can turn around the 1-0 deficit heading into the Sky Bet Championship Play-Off Semi-Final Second Leg clash against Leeds United at Elland Road.
Kemar Roofe’s second half strike at Pride Park Stadium secured victory for the Whites on Saturday and they have the advantage going into Wednesday night’s Second Leg.
However, Johnson, a former Leeds player, believes all is still to be played for at Elland Road.
“Everyone says the old cliché, ‘it’s only half-time’, we know if we get an early goal then it is back to square one and anybody’s game,” he told RamsTV.
“Going there we are confident that we can do it. We have spoken about it a little bit but forgotten about what has happened and all the focus is on Wednesday now.
“We want to go there and get the win.”
The Rams will be backed by a sell-out away section on Wednesday night.
It’s set to be an electric atmosphere and the 32-year-old knows Derby will need to be at their best to get the right result.
“It is a great stadium to play in,” he said. “I played there for four years throughout my career, I have been there in full houses and they do get behind the team.
“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.”
