Leeds Put Three Past Lowly Reading to go Top of the League
Leeds United are back at the top of the Championship table, although it may only last a day. They went away to Reading last night and won 3-0 to climb one point ahead of Norwich in the standing but The Canaries play tonight, so that could all change again. Sheffield United also won last night, they are the third team involved in the automatic promotion race and as the table stands right now, just two points separate all three clubs.
This was an impressive performance from Leeds, they took control of the game and never really looked back. All three goals came in the first half, and the team cruised through the second half to record the win. A combination of skill and mental toughness will get two of the three teams involved into the automatic promotion places and last night we saw both in abundance from the Yorkshire club.
Norwich host Hull tonight who are currently in the bottom half of the table and they will be looking to get three points on the board so they can claim back their position at the head of the table.
Leeds have a huge game in the Championship at the weekend, against Sheffield United. These two teams are battling it out for the top two places, and a win for Leeds would put a five point gap between themselves and United. A win for the Sheffield club though would put them above Leeds and in the driving seat. On top of all this, these two are local rivals to add even more spice to the encounter. Leeds are the favourites to win the game, priced up at 21/20, while Sheffield United can be backed at 27/10, and the draw is 12/5.
