It was a tale of contrasting fortunes for both Leeds United and Blackburn Rovers after their recent Championship game ended. The 2-1 win for Leeds saw them make another stride towards securing that important play-off place whilst Blackburn went one step closer to relegation into the third division of English football.
That being said, it wasn’t an easy win for Leeds. They left it right to the end to secure all three points and it took a bullet header off the head of defender and cult hero Pontus Jansson to get Leeds what Garry Monk described as a “priceless” victory for the side.
A fan recently posted a video of the winning goal on Twitter and to say it was amazing would be an understatement. Hernandez’s perfect corner combined with Jansson’s header and the whole stand erupting in celebration makes for surreal viewing, particularly from the angle captured in the video.
