    Derby will face Leeds United in the Championship play-off semi-finals following their win over West Brom on the final day of the season to set up a ‘Spygate’ reunion.

    There was controversy at Elland Road after Marcelo Bielsa confessed to telling a member of his staff to spy on the Derby team at their training ground in the lead up to a match between the two sides in January.

    Bielsa received a great deal of criticism for his spying tactics

    Leeds were fined £200,000 for the incident by the EFL but Bielsa claimed to have paid it out of his own pocket.

    The scandal didn’t sit well with Derby and they now have their chance to exact revenge on Leeds.

    The other play-off semi sees Aston Villa take on Midlands rivals West Brom and below you can see when the semi-final ties will be played and when the final at Wembley Stadium is.

    Derby boss Frank Lampard was not happy with Bielsa’s tactics
