Leeds United and Derby County played out a thriller last night at Elland Road as we learned the complete line-up for the Sky Bet Championship final at the end of the month.
The match was simply fantastic as both sides had chances to win the tie outright but it was the Rams that emerged victorious as they did to Leeds what Leeds have done to so many this season.
Indeed, it left quite a few players in White stunned last night with some failing to step up to the mark when it really mattered.
One man that can hold his head up high concerning his performance, though, is Stuart Dallas with him the leading light for the home side.
He scored two and could have had a hat-trick with the bit between his teeth but, ultimately, it wasn’t enough.
Even so, the performance was not lost on Leeds fans on social media and so here we take a look at some of the praise he has rightly received…
Our new Nigel Worthington, the Northern Irishman never gave less than his best, even when sometimes that wasn’t great. Almost had a hat-trick in the last game of the year. Good for squad depth to keep around for next year. #lufc

As far as im concerned, I only want to make sure we keep Ayling, Dallas, Phillips, Shackleton, Klich and Jansson. Those players stepped up when we needed then in both legs, when it mattered (bar jansson), that's the mentality we need at the club, everyone else can go. #lufc
