Leeds United took another big step towards promotion back to the Premier League for the first time in 15 years last night thanks to a 2-0 win against Derby County at Elland Road.
It was a badly needed win for the Whites after three consecutive losses in all competitions leading up to it but they have now opened up a five-point lead at the top of the table.
Kemar Roofe opened the scoring for Marcelo Bielsa’s side in the 20th minute after some brilliant work by Jack Clarke and Jack Harrison doubled the advantage two minutes into the second half, tapping home Ezgjan Alioski’s pull back.

It was a match enjoyed thoroughly by all Leeds fans and also those who used to play for the club, with Lucas Radebe tweeting his praises after the match.
Radebe played for the Whites for 11 years between 1994 and 2005, becoming a legend with the club and the fans were delighted as ever to see him enjoying the performances.
Here is how they reacted…
