Keith Andrews shares what he has 'no doubt' about with Leeds after win v Bristol City
Keith Andrews has no doubt that Leeds United were the big winners in the Championship at the weekend.
Marcelo Bielsa’s side were the only one in the top seven to earn maximum points as they beat Bristol City 1-0 at Elland Road, courtesy of a goal by Luke Ayling in the first half.
Elsewhere, West Brom were held to a draw by Nottingham Forest, Fulham were surprisingly beaten 3-0 by basement boys Barnsley, Millwall beat Preston and Brentford drew with Birmingham.
Leeds have been very fortunate to not drop out of the automatic promotion spots in the last couple of months due to their awful form but it was about time that everything went their way at the weekend.
The results means that the Whites are now three points ahead of third-placed Fulham with a seven-goal advantage in goal difference and four points off league leaders West Brom.
Former Baggies midfielder Andrews is someone who often irks Leeds supporters, but he has admitted that the weekend was definitely one for the Yorkshire giants.
“Overall, you would have to say that, over the weekend with the way the results went, Leeds were the winners of the weekend – no doubt about it,” said Andrews on Sky Sports’ EFL Podcast.
“Them winning and everybody else not getting maximum points. And then when you factor in the performance against Brentford, we know they’re not very good on their travels in London, the performance against Brentford was very, very good.
“And then to back it up with a comprehensive victory, even though it was only 1-0 and it causes that little bit of uncertainty around at Elland Road that they don’t quite put teams away. But the performance was very, very impressive.”
Andrews is right, Leeds were the biggest winners in the Championship at the weekend.
It may have only been 1-0 but it was against a fellow promotion rival, who could have gone level on points with the Whites if they had won at Elland Road, and it was also a very promising performance.
Leeds appear to have finally turned a corner with their form.
Even though they drew at Brentford, the signs were there that a good result was to come and that momentum carried superbly into the clash with Bristol City.
Let’s hope that continues this weekend with Reading up next.
