Fourth place in the league! I need to readjust my TV set to make sure I am seeing things right. I pinch myself to make sure I’m not dreaming and naturally check social media to make sure I have not slipped into some other dimension.
Turns out it is all true after Leeds’s win over Aston Villa on Saturday, and what a win it proved to be.
Steve Bruce has worked wonders since taking over a dismal Villa side struggling to adapt to the rigours of the Championship.
Bruce, has steadied the ship since taking over and proved that they do have the quality in the squad needed to push for promotion after going unbeaten until their trip to the mighty whites on Saturday evening.
Two second half goals secured an impressive win for Garry Monk’s side as Leeds looked in relative control throughout the match.
Kemar Roofe raised the (ahem) Roof after netting his first goal since his transfer from Oxford Utd in the summer and Chris Wood slid in for his tenth league goal of the campaign late on in injury time after some great work from Sacko opened up the Villa defence.
Albert Adomah and Ashley Westwood had chances for the visitors but could not capitalise as Leeds defenders Pontus Jansson and Luke Ayling look a pairing stronger than Fort Knox.
Leeds move up to fourth in the table and face second place Brighton on Friday night in another test to see if the whites can cut the mustard but results like this make us all believe that the good times could not be too far away.
Thank goodness Leeds owner Massimo Cellino did not give Monk the boot after his shaky start to the season.
