Leeds United moved to within a single point of achieving promotion into the Premier League, as they ran out 1-0 winners over Barnsley.
Michael Sollbauer’s own goal in the first-half proved to be the difference between the two teams, with Patrick Bamford taking the credit for the goal after his pull-back was turned into his own net by the Barnsley man.
Leeds are now six points clear of third-placed Brentford with two matches remaining in this year’s campaign, which means that they need a point from their last two matches to confirm a long-awaited promotion back into the top-flight.

Bamford was undertaking his post-match interview, but that wasn’t the focus, as Leeds’ Director of Football Victor Orta could be heard chanting about Leeds in the background.
Plenty of the Elland Road faithful were quick to take to social media to react to this footage of Orta after the win over Barnsley on Thursday evening.
Take a look at the best of the reaction from Twitter below….
This is absolutely brilliant – like a kid who’s proud of his drunk dad for enjoying himself 🤪😂😂
