Leeds United lost 2-0 to Birmingham City this afternoon.

Leeds United have now lost three of the last four games after a 2-0 defeat to Birmingham City at Elland Road this afternoon.

The Whites went in to the game having lost 3-0 away at Middlesbrough last weekend, and manager Uwe Rosler was hoping for a much improved display as Birmingham City came to West Yorkshire.

However, he didn't get an improvement from his side, with winger Demarai Gray smashing Birmingham in front after half an hour.

Leeds, equipped with new signing Will Buckley, tried to get back in to the game, but Birmingham never looked in much trouble before scoring the second goal in added time.

Winger Jacques Maghoma picked up a loose ball, drove towards the Leeds goal and stroked the ball in to the corner of the net to give Gary Rowett's men another three points.

The Blues move up in to fourth place as they continue their unbeaten away record this season, whilst Leeds' second defeat in a row leaves them down in 16th place, giving manager Uwe Rosler plenty of work to do during the upcoming international break.
