Last week it was Gary Rowett's Stoke, on Saturday Frank Lampard's Derby.

Former England global Lampard won his first game as manager 2-1 against _ thanks to a last-minute victor, but couldn't repeat the trick in his first home game in charge.

A double from Kemar Roofe and goals from Mateusz Klich and Ezgjan Alioski gave Leeds a second victory of the Sky Bet Championship season.

"They played very well but if you get your game right and work hard, you should be able to deal with these things".

Lampard has been active in the transfer window, bringing in nine players including Jack Marriott, Martyn Waghorn, Fikayo Tomori, Mason Mount and Harry Wilson.

Lawrence dusted himself down to take the free-kick and the winger produced an absolute piledriver that zoomed past Bailey Peacock-Farrell and into the roof of the net. Tom Lawrence's direct running was too much for Luke Ayling, the right-back bringing down the Welsh global outside the corner of the penalty area. Lawrence smashed the free kick over the wall and through the grasp of Peacock-Farrell, who appeared to have the shot covered but could not stop it.

"Leeds have come to our place and looked more confident than comes down to the basics of football, if you don't move the ball quickly enough and you're not courageous enough and your quality is not quite good enough then it's hard to get out and we weren't good enough today".

The 24-year-old scored six goals in 42 games last term and with two in two already in this campaign, he will be one to watch throughout Lampard's debut season in management.

Dishing out a 4-1 win tonight, Leeds were relentless.

The reprieve was only temporary and two goals in four minutes swung the game decisively in the visitors' favour.

Roofe slammed the ball high past Carson to register his second of the game.
