Leeds United defeated Millwall 1-0 at Elland Road this weekend.

Leeds United made it four wins in their last five Championship matches as they defeated Millwall 1-0 at Elland Road on Saturday.

Young midfielder Alex Mowatt proved the hero, scoring the only goal of the game six minutes before half-time.

The teenager scored from a free-kick to back up Neil Redfearn’s decision to recently recall him to the side after omitting him for the match against Brentford.

This time Redfearn made only one change from the side that defeated Reading 2-0 last week, with Rudy Austin replacing the injured Tomasso Bianchi.

As the game drew to a close, Leeds began to give away chances but they held firm to ensure yet another victory for a side that shows great promise.

Leeds are now 12th in the Championship table, proving how a good run of form can fire you up the most unpredictable of divisions.

In short, a great day for Leeds and one Millwall - who remain in the bottom three - will want to forget.
