Leeds United continued their winning run with a stellar performance against their Yorkshire Rivals.
A goal from Jack Harrison gave the three points to the home side but score could have been very different as Leeds dominated the game.

The game started with the news skipper Liam Cooper was replaced Gaetano Berardi after a minor injury during the warm up.
Within minutes Leeds were nearly ahead after a clever lobbed ball found Bamford but former White Tom Lees upended the striker and got a booking for his efforts.
Roberts was then the recipient of a beautiful cross from Alioski but his header was only just pushed away by Westwood.
Kiko Casilla was then called into action from a beautifully curled shot from Barry Bannan with a fingertip saved.
The game continued to fall into Leeds’ favour but the home side could not convert their chances, even when the ball had pinballed around the box giving them four bites at the Apple in quick concession.
The final chance of the half fell to Patrick Bamford who decided to square the ball through on goal to Tyler Roberts, with Westwood stopping his first effort before his second flew past the entire goal line.
Leeds continued to press into the second half with chances for both Pablo Hernandez and Alioski but it wasn’t until the 65th minute when the home side were able to convert a chance.
After some tricky play around the box, Pablo Hernandez was their to pick up his 11th assist of the season, squaring the ball to Jack Harrison who flicked the ball into the far corner.
The ground erupted as Leeds took the lead, the pensive atmosphere had dissipated and Leeds were pushing to go three points clear of third placed Sheffield United.
How the run in looks;
Man of the Match: Tyler Roberts, this young lad has the grace and presence of three Samu Saiz’s and is now showing the reason he’s moved to midfield. Positive on the ball and a constant handful.
