Goals from Rodolph Austin, Mirco Antenucci and Souleymane Doukara help Leeds United pick up all three points against Huddersfield Town at Elland Road in the Championship.

Leeds United continued their recent run of good form with a 3-0 victory over West Yorkshire rivals Huddersfield Town at Elland Road in the Championship on Saturday.

The Whites headed into the contest having picked up seven points from a possible nine in three matches under caretaker-manager Neil Redfearn.

The former Premier League outfit did not make any mistake in picking up the three points in front of their fans in what could be the 49-year-old’s final game in charge of the first team.

Leeds took the lead in the 20th minute when Mirco Antenucci found Rodolph Austin to shoot home from the right side of the box with his right foot.

Huddersfield came close to restoring parity through Jonathan Hogg and Harry Bunn, but it was Leeds who scored the second goal of the afternoon through Antenucci on the stroke of half time.

The visitors stepped up their game in the second half as Mark Hudson had two good chances with headers, but on both occasions he could not find the target.

Leeds made it 3-0 on 69 minutes when Souleymane Doukara shot home from close range after collecting a pass from Austin.

Gaetano Berardi was sent off for a second bookable offence on 73 minutes, but that did affect the final result.
