Roofe bags brace as Leeds see off Rangers Ca­naries sit­ting pretty af­ter late Pukki strike

Sunday Independent (Ireland) - Sport - - SOCCER -

KE­MAR ROOFE scored twice as Leeds came from be­hind to beat QPR 2-1 and make it four straight Sky Bet Cham­pi­onship wins.

Leeds spurned a host of early op­por­tu­ni­ties and were made to pay as Nahki Wells put the visitors ahead af­ter 26 min­utes with a cool fin­ish.

Roofe was in the thick of the ac­tion in the open­ing stages and he even­tu­ally found a way past Rangers goal­keeper Joe Lum­ley on the stroke of half-time. NOR­WICH scored a last-gasp win­ner against Bolton to main­tain their lead at the top of the Cham­pi­onship.

Mario Vran­cic and Marco Stieper­mann put the Ca­naries 2-0 up but Bolton, who are still win-less in their last 11 league games, ral­lied through Sammy Ameobi and Mark Beev­ers’ 88th-minute equaliser to level at 2-2.

Ameobi was then sent off as the 90 min­utes ex­pired be­fore Teemu Pukki struck the win­ner three min­utes into stop­page time.
