Leeds FC reclaim top spot after West Brom win


Leeds FC has again returned to the top spot in the Sky Bet Championship with a 4-0 win over promotion rivals West Brom at Elland Road.

Pablo Hernandez made a starting goal 17 seconds into the game while Patrick Bamford doubled the advantage during a brilliant first half from the hosts then Ezgjan Aliosk added salt into the Albion wounds when he tapped home a fourth three minutes into injury time at the end of the game, helping Leeds reclaim top spot off Norwich ahead of their trip to Millwall.

The West Yorkshire Club deservedly doubled their lead before the half-hour when Bamford slotted home from close range after Roberts picked him out.

The visitors could not find the breakthrough, though, and Leeds Fc finished them off with a third goal in the 63rd minute.
