1996 marked Derby County’s first year in the English Premier League and for their first game of the season they drew Leeds United at home.

The game played out to a thrilling conclusion with five goals being scored in the final 18 minutes as the teams shared the spoils and the fixture ended 3-3. A disappointing end for Leeds United however, after they’d led for the majority of the fixture courtesy of a Laursen own goal.
