leeds face derby in the championship playoff semi—final. you pressure for them, pressure for us, 1—0 down going into a tough atmosphere. this is what the lads when they were young boys, wanting to be football players, were dreaming about. scotland name their world cup squad — which 23 women are on the list for their first ever finals? and deontay wilder under fire again — when does boxing trash—talk cross the line? also coming up in the programme: and a 16th major title and return to world number one ranking on the cards — but how will tiger woods fare at the us pga? and sibling rivalry in the nba — steph and seth curry face each other for a place in the nba finals
6:35 pm
thanks forjoining us. a date at wembley and a potential spot in next year's premier league is at stake when leeds united take on derby county at elland road tonight. the hosts bring a 1—0 lead into the second leg of their championship play—off semifinal, with a place in the play—off final against aston villa awaiting the winners. austin halewood has more. they are one of english wood bowl‘s sleeping giants. elland road has seen three first division titles, but such former glories had been absent of late. for 15 season, leads have been away from the top flight. but the yorkshire faithful believe they have finally found the man to ta ke they have finally found the man to take them back to the big time. after a five first leg at pride park, they have the lead.
6:36 pm
translation: at the emotion is an ingredient that allows you to use better skills, we know there is a long path to reach our goal. we have just laid the first part and we have the second part to play. since france —— sicily tussled in the 705, leeds and derby have had a fierce rivalry, ordered off the pitch, the two sides are never far from controversy. in january, two sides are never far from controversy. injanuary, leeds were fined £200,000 for sending a spite of one of derby's training sessions. since then and motions have run high, and for frank lampard, he is desperate for his side to keep theirs in check. we know the intensity of this game, it ramps up injanuary for obvious intensity of this game, it ramps up in january for obvious reasons. intensity of this game, it ramps up injanuary for obvious reasons. i am not worried about their players, i am worrying about mine. they must give everything and not overstep the line. this is what the lads when they were young boys were dreaming about. derby have found their own
6:37 pm
source of inspiration end lampard, in his first season as a manager he has taken the cat migrans to the bank of the premier league. so far leeds have had their number. they have put seven goals past them and beating them three times already this season. with wembley on the horizon, a spot in the play—off final all comes down to this one. the narrowest of margins means there's all to play for tonight. how will the teams look? colin hazeldon is at elland road. leeds versus derby, lampard versus b also. a match or dripping with age it had modern mdt. from the moment that brian clough's derby pit leads to the title by a single point, to old contentious 44 days in charge. finally norman hunter duking it out on the field of play, ed bird in its way through the 19705. a valve array
6:38 pm
that lingers and was revived by the frankly absurd spectacle of spy gate earlier this year when leeds boss admitted trying espionage to gain an advantage. he says the key man has been a thorn and derby's side, and rams have the advantage of knowing they have to go for it. this is a bonus for derby, quite right lampard says there's transition season, where leeds will automatic promotion favourites for much of the campaign. a derby win would see heroic, a win for leeds feels essential. both bring their own pressure. scotland have named their squad for their first world cup finals. the 23 names were shown alongside some famous scottish landmarks earlier, with rachel corsie named as captain. the utah royals defender will have arsenal midfielder kim little as her deputy. all the players were part of the squad that drew with chile

and beat brazil in spain last month, with the exception of fiorentina striker lana clelland. scotland begin their group d campaign against england in nice on the 9th ofjune. jane dougall was at the squad announcement at hampden, where she caught up with the scotland manager, shelley kerr. the sun is shining in the hand in pitch, where it just the sun is shining in the hand in pitch, where itju5t a few weeks' time scotland's women be playing againjamaica in their time scotland's women be playing again jamaica in their last friendly before the world cup. we now know the 23 player scored which will be on the date in france. joining me 110w on the date in france. joining me now is head coach shelley kerr. lovely phone calls when you tell people who have been selected, but how difficult have to phone calls been to the players who have not? how difficult have to phone calls been to the players who have nowm was been to the players who have nowm wa5 torture, probably the hardest thing i have had to do. i sympathise with them, i doubt they will be disappointed, angry, frustrated, and i understand that. it is a credit to
6:40 pm
the 35 players that we have used, because they made it so difficult and it has been such a competitive environment, that is what we wanted. a5 environment, that is what we wanted. as much as it has been hard, i think we are in a good place. players like emma mitchell admits doubt, expose at that cracking goal for arsenal. emma mitchell admits doubt, expose at that cracking goal for arsenallj am at that cracking goal for arsenal.” am gutted for the players who have been missed out, and frankie brown a5 been missed out, and frankie brown as well who has been in the squad along time, there has been so many that have contributed throughout the campaign. emma is one who has been a starting player, but unfortunately she has been out of the equation for six months, it is a credit to other players who have come in, particularly emma doherty —— nicola doherty, who has done well on a big stage with top teams. it is always about merit and we have stuck to the same approach throughout our squad selection and it should not be any different for the world cup and i appreciate that we have some really disappointed players. this is the
6:41 pm
first time scotland has got to the world cup since 1998. how proud are you to be the manager who takes scotla nd you to be the manager who takes scotland to this world stage?” actually read somewhere this morning, take it was tom english, 30 yea rs morning, take it was tom english, 30 years ago i got my first cap for scotland, and it is ironic that 30 yea rs scotland, and it is ironic that 30 years later i am so proud of the achievements of the team and they deserve all the credit, not me, but obviously it has a special moment in my career to be at the helm, leading the team to the world cup. getting all the luxuries you deserve?” don't know about that, but in terms of the support that we have had, it couldn't be any better in terms of oui’ couldn't be any better in terms of our preparation, the sport has been magnificent. from the organisation, sport scotland, the scottish government to help us train, the home—based players. i cannot fight all the external partners enough for all the external partners enough for all their support, because we needed and if we are to do well at the

world cup,... on the 28th, scotland will play jamaica here at world cup,... on the 28th, scotland will playjamaica here at hampton. the first time for seven years that scotla nd the first time for seven years that scotland women will have played here. the last friendly before the world cup because the following matches against england. let's have a quick look at some of the day's other sports news now. former champion tom dumoulin has withdrawn from the giro d'italia shortly after the start of today's stage five after failing to recover from a crash yesterday. pascal ackermann went on to cross the line first for his second—stage win of this year's race. britain's simon yates is 35 seconds off the overall lead. england captain eoin morgan will miss the fourth one—day international against pakistan in nottingham on friday. he's been suspended because of his side's slow over rate during yesterday's six—wicket win in bristol. ireland have lost their final match of their tri—5erie5, being beaten by six wickets by bangladesh in dublin. a century from paul stirling and 94 from william porterfield saw them finish 292 for eight.
6:43 pm
but bangladesh reached their target with 42 balla remaining. great britain have scored theirfirst goals of the ice hockey world championship, but they are still looking for a first win after four matches. the lost 6—3 to the usa and are likely to need a final day win against france on monday to avoid relegation. —— they lost. now, trash talk in boxing is nothing new, but questions are being asked about where to draw the line after heavyweight deontay wilder again said he wants to kill an opponent in the ring. speaking ahead of the his wbc title defence against fellow american dominic breazeale on saturday, wilder 5aid he was "trying to get a body" on his record. here were his exact words: wilder has since defended those comments, saying
6:44 pm
it's all part of boxing. dominic breazeale asked for this. i did not seek him, he was seeking me. this is not a gentleman's sport, we do not ask to hit each other in the face but we do in a way, ask any doctor, the head is not meant to be hit. steph and seth curry become the first siblings to face each other in an nba conference final, but who are their parents supporting? i told my mother, who are you with? i saw her stand up and cheer, but i saw all portland. the us pga championship starts tomorrow, with all eyes on tiger woods. fresh from winning his first major title in 11 years at the masters last month, the big question is, can he do it again?
6:45 pm
well, sarah mulkerrins was in augusta for that famous comeback win. the question is, was that a one—off or are we about to see a sustained resurgence for woods? i think this year at the masters, in the lead up to it, we all felt that tiger woods was not there in hope, but that he was in there in expectation of contending. i don't know how many people thought he would win, but he did. it was a brilliant story. it was his first major since 2008, a fifth green jacket for him. the comeback of all comebacks, as it was built. 0ur gusto suited tiger, forgetting this first major in those 11 years as he knows this course so well. it suits his game. how it all unfolded wa5 that, on the back nine on that
