Patrick Bamford’s 88th-minute header gave Leeds United a 1-0 win at Sheffield United in a Yorkshire Premier League derby on Sunday.
Birmingham: Jack Harrison whipped in a superb cross from the left wing and Bamford rose well to score for the third straight game. The game was a story of excellent goalkeeping at both ends. Leeds’s French custodian Illan Meslier produced a superb save in the 29th minute, stopping a close-range effort from John Lundstram. Marcelo Bielsa’s side then threatened, but Sheffield goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale did well to keep out a lofted shot from Stuart Dallas. Bamford’s fine header, however, ensured that Leeds got its second win in three matches.
