Christmas came early for Leeds United as they landed themselves back into the Championship’s top six spots with a 1-0 victory over Yorkshire rivals Hull City earlier today.
There were a few close chances for both sides in the closely-contested match, but the Peacocks managed to break the deadlock and got the lead just before the half-hour mark.
Hull goalkeeper Alan McGregor’s horrendous attempt at clearing the ball 30 yards from the goal went completely awry and the ball found itself at Pablo Hernandez’s feet.
The Leeds midfielder reacted with composure and beautifully lobbed the ball into the goal over McGregor’s reach to secure 3 points for the Whites.
Thomas Christiansen’s men are now sitting on the fifth spot on the table and will be travelling to Burton next week.
