Leeds 0-1 Derby
Giles Barnes plunged Leeds into further relegation trouble when he headed in the only goal of the game to give Derby victory at Elland Road.

Barnes was first to meet Jon Stead's cross and powered in an unstoppable header past Leeds goalkeeper Graham Stack and into the corner of the net.

Leeds' Hayden Foxe tested Stephen Bywater from 20 yards with a dipping drive and Robbie Blake also went close.

Derby went close when David Jones hit the crossbar with a fierce shot.

  • Leeds boss Dennis Wise:
    "We fell asleep for the goal and we should have attacked it. Small details are costing us at the moment.

    "We've got the squad to get out of this and I'm sure in January we'll add a couple more. There are certain people we've earmarked.

    "We have to get a certain amount of points by a certain time but time's far from up. It (Leeds's position) will change."

  • Derby manager Billy Davies:
    "Giles Barnes has got good potential but he can get better like a lot of our players.

    "His final ball should be better. His left side should be better. He's got great potential but he's a young player and he can't rest on his laurels. None of us can. We're not good enough to do that.

    "I thought our opening 45 minutes was exceptional. The game should have been dead and buried, but we've got to be very proud in the end. It's our first result here for 32 years."
