Leeds United took a huge step towards the Premier League, as they ran out 3-1 winners over Blackburn Rovers at Ewood Park on Saturday.
Patrick Bamford gave Marcelo Bielsa’s side the lead on the day with a close-range finish from Mateusz Klich’s through ball.
Kalvin Phillips then doubled that lead shortly before halt-time with an inch-perfect free-kick from distance. Adam Armstrong then fired in a free-kick of his own to pull a goal back for Tony Mowbray’s side.
