Leeds In To 7/4 After Bamford Boost

Leeds United are back on top of the Championship after a second-half goal from fit-again striker Patrick Bamford gave them a 1-0 win at Bolton. Marcelo Bielsa’s men have leapfrogged Norwich in the standings, with the Canaries being held to a 2-2 draw at Bristol City on Saturday evening.

In a fascinating promotion race, the two leaders have opened up a gap at the top, with West Brom five points behind Norwich in third place after their 2-1 win at fourth placed Sheffield United on Friday.

Derby, in fifth, host seventh-placed Nottingham Forest in what promises to be a fierce local derby on Monday night.

The pick of next weekend’s action sees Leeds go to Aston Villa, who currently sit in eighth place and need a win to close the gap and maintain their hopes of forcing their way into the automatic promotion picture.

Leeds have been cut to a best price of 7/4* with Bet365 to win the title, with Norwich now a 7/2* chance with William Hill.
