    Background: ALLAN CLARKE, THE INSIDE-FORWARD WHO COST LEEDS UNITED A RECORD GBP165,000 DURING THE SOCCER CLOSE-SEASON, SCORED BOTH GOALS TO GIVE HIS SIDE VICTORY IN A TOP-OF-THE-TABLE CLASH WITH DERBY COUNTY TODAY (SATURDAY).

    LEEDS, ENGLISH CHAMPIONS LAST SEASON, ENCOUNTERED SPIRITED OPPOSITION ON THEIR HOME GROUND FROM THEIR VISITORS. THOUGH DERBY WON PROMOTION TO THE FIRST DIVISION ONLY LAST SEASON, THEY HAVE BEEN AMONG THE LEADERS SINCE THE BEGINNING OF THE CURRENT LEAGUE PROGRAMME.

    CLARKE WAS QUICKLY SINGLED OUT AS THE LEEDS DANGER MAN. BUT THOUGH HEAVILY MARKED BY DERBY DEFENDERS, CLARKE MADE THE MOST OF HIS CHANCES.

    A SPELL OF LEEDS PRESSURE RESULTED IN THE 39TH MINUTE IN A CORNER TAKEN BY EDDIE GRAY. CLARKE WAS ON HAND TO HEAD THE BALL INTO THE NET TO OPEN THE LEEDS SCORING.

    THREE MINUTES LATER, A LONG BALL DOWN THE CENTRE OUTSTRIPPED DERBY'S DEFENCE. CLARKE RACED ON TO IT AND, WITH THE VISITORS PROTESTING THAT HE WAS OFFSIDE, DRIBBLED ROUND DERBY GOALKEEPER LES GREEN TO TAP HIS SECOND GOAL.
