Leeds United picked up a much-needed three points with a narrow 1-0 win over play-off chasing Bristol City at Elland Road on Saturday.
The scoreline doesn’t tell the story though, as Marcelo Bielsa’s side were completely dominant throughout the game against Lee Johnson’s men.
Luke Ayling’s first-half strike proved to be the difference between the two sides on the day though, as Leeds closed the gap on league-leaders West Brom.
The Whites are now four points adrift of the Baggies, but they’ve extended their lead over third-placed Fulham to three points, after the Cottagers were beaten 3-0 by relegation-threatened Barnsley.

Augustin took to Instagram following the win, and labelled the victory as a ‘perfect day’, before praising the Elland Road faithful for their support.

I think he’ll have a big role to play in their promotion bid.
Augustin is still adjusting to the demands of the Championship, and it’s going to take him a bit of time to settle into his new surroundings at Elland Road.
