Blackburn Rovers 1-2 Leeds United

Leeds United celebrate

Leeds have won all three matches they have played since a 4-0 defeat at Brighton on 29 February

Leeds United secured a third successive Championship victory as they denied hosts Blackburn Rovers a fifth league win in a row at Ewood Park.

Leeds captain Sol Bamba volleyed in Alex Mowatt’s corner on 34 minutes for his second goal of the season.

Mirco Antenucci made it 2-0, running clear on the counter-attack before lifting the ball over Jason Steele for his fourth goal in three matches.

Simeon Jackson scored late for Rovers after Leeds failed to clear a corner.

Steve Evans’ side have responded brilliantly to their 4-0 thrashing at Brighton on 29 February, taking maximum points from games against Bolton, Cardiff and Blackburn to banish any fears of being dragged into a relegation battle.

Rovers had scored 10 goals during their four-match winning run at home but while Paul Lambert’s side enjoyed spells of pressure, they struggled to create many clear opportunities.
