What Leeds did for first time in over three years on Saturday

Leeds United have now won three consecutive away league matches for the first time since 2011.

Leeds United are on a run few would have expected just a few short months ago. But this club is different to most, and under manager Neil Redfearn they are proving the doubters wrong in impressive style.

On Saturday, Leeds made it five wins from their last six matches as they overcame then-league leaders Middlesbrough 1-0 at the Riverside Stadium.

Alex Mowatt was once again the goal-scoring hero, but in truth Leeds had their entire team to thank for a victory that not only sent them up to 11th in the table but also ensured they achieved something for the first time in more than three years.

Leeds' away form needed to improve, and it has done just that, in dramatic style; and now Neil Redfearn's side have managed what no Leeds side have done since November 2011.

As pointed out by Whoscored.com's official Twitter account, Leeds have now won three consecutive away matches for the first time in more than three years.

Back then, they defeated Leicester City, Burnley and Nottingham Forest in quick succession, before seeing their record end with a 1-1 draw away to Watford at the start of December.

This time Leeds have the chance to make it four away wins on the bounce when they take on Brighton & Hove Albion on Tuesday, and if they do that, a late surge into the play-off places may suddenly be a little more likely.
