In what amounted to a significant upset, Derby County, with Frank Lampard in charge and former Irish worldwide Shay Given on the coaching staff, overcame Leeds United in what was a first for the Championship playoff semi-finals.
Lampard had lost to Leeds on all three previous occasions this season, including the first leg (1-0), and was being goaded by the home support as Derby trailed 2-0 on aggregate, the Daily Mail reported.
This means that Frank Lampard's side have progressed to the final 4-3 on aggregate and will face Aston Villa at Wembley Stadium in London later this month for a place in the Premier League next season.

Derby came to give during the second half and totally dominated Marcelo Bielsa's side.
"I think they're all nice guys, there are no leaders out there", he told talkSPORT. They powered their way to a 3-0 success at Pride Park in the first league meeting, before taking a 4-0 win over them back on home soil.
"We didn't just say we're going to go to Elland Road and do a counter-attack job", Given clarified, "we actually put a diamond in midfield and changed the two up top". We were the better team over two legs.

"But there's work to do, this isn't the end, we're underdogs again and we'll have a tough game against a brilliant Villa team, but we're there".
Leeds, though, will propose to extend the 63-year-old's contract and Bielsa will listen to United's approach.
"As you can imagine, it's not convenient to talk about this right now".
"You know about this process".
"There have been mistakes and that leads to doubts about the head coach", said Bielsa, who was dejected at the full-time whistle.
Sang to to the tune of Oasis' hit song Stop Crying Your Heart Out, this Spygate-related chant was created by Leeds fans ahead of their Championship play-off clash against Derby County this week; a game they were favourites to win.
"If you have the resources to reach something and you don't, if you have the possibility to reach the goal and you don't, I have to assume the worst possibility", Bielsa said. There was a loss of control.
