Leeds United moved four points clear at the top of the Championship table with a 3-1 win over Blackburn Rovers at Ewood Park on Saturday afternoon.
Goals from Patrick Bamford, Kalvin Phillips and Mateusz Klich proved to be enough for Marcelo Bielsa’s side, as they took a sizeable step towards achieving promotion into the Premier League.
The Elland Road faithful and Bielsa will be hoping that Bamford’s goal will be a much-needed confidence booster heading into the final five matches of this year’s campaign.

Bamford was different class yesterday. Grafted hard, scored and hit the post. 15 for the season now. Get behind him #lufc

Hat off to Bamford he was terrific today.
Led the line well, pressed their defenders and capped it all off with a lovely finish.
