Leeds edge closer to pro­mo­tion

The Irish Times - Monday - Sport - - Soccer -

Pablo Her­nan­dez moved Leeds closer to the Premier League as his late strike against his for­mer club Swansea gave United a 1-0 vic­tory at the Lib­erty Sta­dium.

Her­nan­dez spent two years at Swansea be­tween 2012 and 2014 and was a pop­u­lar fig­ure there. But the Spa­niard has prob­a­bly not scored a more im­por­tant goal than the one that he man­aged in the 89th minute, con­trol­ling Luke Ayling’s cross to roll the ball home off a post.

It was a goal that moved Leeds three points clear of sec­ond-placed West Brom, and more im­por­tantly six ahead of in-form Brent­ford in third.
