Lee Erwin mocks team-mate on Twitter after Reading victory

It's been a productive weekend for Leeds-based teams and sports personalities.

Leeds United recorded their second successive win by beating Reading 3-2 at Elland Road on Saturday afternoon.

Chris Wood, who had scored the Whites' second to put his side 2-1 ahead, then grabbed himself an 86th-minute winner to down the Royals and propel United up to 12th in the Championship table in the process.

It was a fitting end to a positive week for Steve Evans's side, who beat Birmingham City at St Andrew's in midweek for what was their first victory in five Championship outings.

Away from football, it has been a successful weekend for Leeds-based teams and sportspeople on the whole, with boxer Josh Warrington beating Japan’s Hisashi Amagasa in a unanimous points decision, while rugby league side Leeds Rhinos managed a 20-18 win over Hull FC on Friday evening.

United defender Liam Cooper tried to acknowledge the city's recent sporting achievements on Twitter, but soon ran into jovial opposition in the form of striker Lee Erwin.

Back to football and Evans, who is bidding to earn a new contract, has seen his side move three points behind 10th-placed Preston North End as they aim for a top-half finish.
