Leeds moved within two points of second placed Ipswich Town after a hard fought victory over their bitter neighbours Norwich City at Elland Road last night.

For the most part, David Wagner's side provided stiff opposition; their spells of dominance created a tense atmosphere around Elland Road. As we have come to expect, Leeds wasted ample opportunities to put the game to bed, with Rutter, Bamford, Summerville, Anthony and even Firpo going agonisingly close, setting up a tense finale.

The only goal of the game came on 16 minutes, with Bamford heading James' peach of a delivery across goal, beating Gunn at his far post, but just like the Norwich commentary team, the visitors never paused for breath, creating some nervy moments as the match progressed.

Leeds have conceded just once in 2024, from five outings, scoring twelve in the process, and are the only team in the Championship, unbeaten at home. In fact, the only other clubs in the entire league unbeaten at home this season are Liverpool and Manchester City!
