Beckford: Brace for Leeds

Beckford: Brace for Leeds

Jermaine Beckford made it four goals in two games as Leeds United came from a goal down to run out 4-2 winners over lowly Stockport County.

It looked ominous for Stockport as Leeds went in front in just the second minute. Robert Snodgrass made a break from midfield before smashing home into the top corner from 20 yards.

Stockport struck back 10 minutes later, though, when Carl Baker curled in a low free-kick from just outside the box.

The Hatters then shocked Leeds when they went in front on the hour mark. Baker crossed from the left and defender Johnny Mullins stooped to head home.

Struck back

However, Leeds struck back six minutes later as Beckford headed home his 18th goal of the season from Patrick Kisnorbo's cross.

Leigh Bromby's 25-yard screamer put Leeds 3-2 up in the 87th minute, before Jermaine Beckford's second goal of the game in stoppage time wrapped up victory.

Stockport winger David Poole was red-carded in the dying seconds following a lunge on Max Gradel.
