Leeds United made it three Championship victories in a row with a 2-1 win away at Blackburn Rovers on Saturday afternoon.

The Whites recorded consecutive wins over Bolton Wanderers and Cardiff City, and now a third win in a row takes them up to 12th place in the Championship table.

Sol Bamba put Leeds in front with a volley from Alex Mowatt's corner, before Mirco Antenucci made it 2-0 with a deft finish on the counter attack. Rovers hit back with a late goal through Simeon Jackson, but Leeds managed to hang on and claim a 2-1 win.

Steve Evans is now putting together a real run of form, and Leeds now sit 12 points away from the play-off places, and a comfortable 11 points away from the relegation zone.
