Leeds' financial position has engendered no shortage of metaphors but few have sought to compare the Yorkshire club with Richard Branson's empire. "I think it took Virgin many years to become a power and we might be the same," said the Leeds manager Kevin Blackwell prior to this match between two clubs who were relegated from the Premiership last season.
There is certainly a suspicion that Leeds, like Branson, have developed an interest in travel, though their dismal performance here following Tuesday's sobering defeat at Gillingham suggests that free-fall rather than flying is the preferred means of transport for a club that appeared in a European Cup semi-final barely three years ago.
So ineffective were Leeds that Paul Jones did not have a save to make. The same could not be said for Leeds' Neil Sullivan, who palmed away Kenny Miller's late penalty after Michael Duberry was dismissed for scything down the Scotland international. "It was a splendid stop by Neil," said the Leeds defender Paul Butler. "We already owe him a lot this season because he made a brilliant save from Junior to prevent Derby from equalising on the opening day."
