Leeds United have maintained their good run of form with victory over Blackburn Rovers at Elland Road in the Championship this afternoon.

Marcelo Bielsa’s side headed into the match against Blackburn on the back of 2-0 win against Queens Park Rangers at Elland Road in the league.

The Whites were favourites to win against Blackburn, and the home team did pick up all three points from the encounter.

 

Patrick Bamford put the home team in the lead on the half-hour mark from the penalty spot, and Manchester City-owned winger Jack Harrison doubled the advantage just five minutes later.

Derrick Williams halved the deficit for Rovers on 40 minutes, but Leeds did not concede another goal and won the match.

Former Leeds striker Noel Whelan was following the match, and he has given his take on the win for the Whites.

Whelan said on BBC Radio Leeds at full time (4:57pm, Saturday, November 9, 2019): “It wasn’t the goalfest at all that was always going to be from the first half when we got the two goals in quick succession, but Blackburn made a game of it, but professionally seen the game out, maybe could have been a few more in the second half.”

Leeds will return to action on November 23 when they take on Luton Town away from home in the Championship.

It is great for the Elland Road faithful that the team will head into the two-week international break on the back of a win.
