Leeds win Yorkshire derby to march back up to second

Leeds once again replaced Ipswich in the Championship automatic promotion places with a 2-0 Yorkshire derby win over Sheffield Wednesday.

Patrick Bamford continued his hot streak in front of goal by putting Daniel Farke’s men in front in the closing seconds of first-half stoppage-time with his seventh goal in 10 league games.

Willy Gnonto then took advantage of some slack Wednesday defending to seal the win just before the hour mark at Hillsborough.

The win – Leeds’ 11th in their last 12 matches – extends the Whites’ unbeaten run when leading at half-time to 48 Championship matches and moves them one point ahead of Ipswich and two behind long-term leaders Leicester, who face Hull on Saturday.

Wednesday stay 23rd after the end of their four-game winning streak, but they are still only inside the relegation zone on goal difference with nine games to play.
