Leeds produce late comeback to beat Leicester

2024/02/23 22:21

Leeds United made a remarkable comeback by scoring three late goals to defeat Championship leaders Leicester City 3-1 at Elland Road and secure their ninth consecutive league victory.

The visitors took the lead in the 15th minute when Wout Faes headed in from a corner, courtesy of Archie Gray's strike.

Although Leicester continued to dominate at the start of the second half, with Stephy Mavididi and Patson Daka both coming close to scoring, they were unable to extend their lead. 

However, Leeds, who had struggled to create chances earlier in the game, dramatically turned the tide. 

Substitute Connor Roberts scored his first goal for the club in the 80th minute, followed by a fortunate goal three minutes later from teenager Archie Gray, whose shot deflected off Hamza Choudhury and Faes before finding the net.

In stoppage time, Daniel James sealed the victory for Leeds with a stunning 20-yard free-kick. 

This win marked Leeds' ninth consecutive league victory and brought them within six points of Leicester in the Championship table.
