Brentford 2-0 Leeds: Marcelo Bielsa’s men crumble to the delight of Norwich and Sheffield United

Leeds were dealt a potentially fatal blow in their bid for automatic promotion as they crumbled to a 2-0 defeat at Brentford.

Neal Maupay and Sergi Canos struck either side of half-time to leave Marcelo Bielsa’s men in need of a minor miracle to finish in the top two.

Maupay opened the scoring

They now trail second-place Sheffield United by three points with a significantly inferior goal difference and just two games remaining.

Leeds began the Bank Holiday weekend in second with a three-point cushion of their own – and their collapse will feel all-too familiar for the club’s supporters.

Today’s defeat follows the shocking loss to Wigan at Elland Road, after the struggling Latics came from a goal down to win with ten men.
