Leeds United are soaring up the table with their recent form.

Leeds United's excellent form seems to show no signs of abating. They defeated title chasing Middlesbrough at The Riverside yesterday afternoon to push themselves up to 11th in the table and seemingly clear of the relegation battle.

Neil Redfearn has turned around heir fortunes recently and this was the club's third clean sheet in a row, with just one defeat in their last five fixtures in the Championship.

There were several top performances that made that possible. First of all Marco Silvestri was sensational in the sticks. He made ten saves in the game to deny Boro in what was something of a backs to the wall performance from Leeds. Sol Bamba and Giuseppe Bellusci were colossal at centre-back, especially the former. Meanwhile Rudolph Austin, Lewis Cook and Alex Mowatt were superb in midfield.

After the game of course Leeds' players were all in good spirits. The likes of Liam Cooper, Mirco Antenucci, Charlie Taylor, Alex Mowatt and Lewis Walters all took to social media to share their joy on yet another win and clean sheet as their top form continues.
