Leeds beat Blackburn to stretch led at top of Championship

Leeds have now won seven of their past nine Championship matchesLeeds United strengthened their position at the top of the Championship table with a resounding victory at Blackburn Rovers.The visitors took an early lead when Mateusz Klich tackled Lewis Travers 30 yards from goal and slipped the ball through for Patrick Bamford to slot home.Lewis Holtby thundered an effort against the post for Rovers before Kalvin Phillips curled in a superb 25-yard free-kick to give the Whites a 2-0 lead at the break.
Adam Armstrong halved the deficit soon after half-time with a wonderful free-kick of his own, but Klich quickly restored the two-goal advantage with a shot that Rovers keeper Christian Walton probably should have done better with.
Relive Saturday's EFL action
Leeds, who remain six points clear of third-placed Brentford, had been frustrated in Tuesday's 1-1 draw with struggling Luton Town but took an early lead through Bamford's 15th of the season.Sam Gallagher wasted a brilliant chance to quickly level after Elliot Rothwell played him in with a well-measured pass through the defence and, moments later, Holtby saw his effort come back off the post following Gallagher's clever ball.In an open first 45 minutes Bamford's low effort came back off the post and Luke Ayling drew a good reaction save from Walton after a Barry Douglas corner.Phillips put Leeds in total control shortly after with a beautifully-struck free-kick.Armstrong's 14th of the season briefly got Tony Mowbray's men back into the match but Klich's effort from the edge of the area went through Walton's dive just five minutes later to end any hopes of a Rovers fightback.Douglas forced a fine low save from Walton with another free-kick as Leeds comfortably saw out the rest of the game.A third successive defeat for Blackburn leaves them eight points adrift of the play-off places.
