Leeds United romped to a 4-1 win yesterday as they dismantled Frank Lampard’s Derby County at Pride Park to put another three points on the board.
The Whites were simply too hot for the Rams to handle, who despite drawing level through Tom Lawrence, could not control some of Leeds’ attacking play and succumbed in the second half to a crushing defeat.
There were some top performances from Leeds players yesterday, but one man who probably drew the most attention was young debutant Jamie Shackleton, who was handed his debut by manager Marcelo Bielsa as a second half substitute.
After playing the last 20 minutes and looking comfortable on the Pride Park turf, Shackleton took to Twitter to voice his pleasure at making his debut.

The Leeds fans love a home grown favourite, and Shackleton will fall into that category if he keeps working at his game as he is at the moment.
It’s safe to say the Leeds fans were pleased for the youngster, and we at FLW took a closer look at just what was being said to Shackleton by the Whites fans…
Good to see Jamie and I liked the way you stood your ground when helping Bailey out!

Listen to Mr Bielsa! He'll tell you what you need to hear.
Congratulations. First of many.
