Leeds United remain top of the Championship table after the fourth round of fixtures, having beaten Brentford 1-0 on Wednesday night.

The Whites beat Wigan Athletic 2-0 on Saturday afternoon to make it two wins from three in the Championship this season, and it's now three wins in four.

Wednesday's game with Brentford was bigged up because of Pontus Jansson's return to Elland Road, his first trip back to Leeds since leaving the club in July.

 

Leeds ended up dashing Jansson's hopes of a clean sheet, as Eddie Nketiah pounced late on to snatch the late winner, tapping home Helder Costa's cross.

Leeds now have 10 points from four games, continuing their unbeaten start to the campaign, and they had a familiar face visit them on Wednesday night.

Former Leeds defender Matt Kilgallon took in the game, with the boyhood Whites fan posting on Twitter after the final whistle.

Kilgallon, who came up through the Leeds youth ranks before leaving for Sheffield United in the Premier League, admitted it was 'great' to see some staff at Elland Road who were there even when he was playing, and hailed the Leeds fans for turning out in their numbers, recording a 35,000 attendance on a Wednesday night.
