Leeds United secured back-to-back victories for just the second time this season after a 2-1 win over Plymouth Argyle at Elland Road.

The Whites stunned Sunderland with a 3-2 win on Boxing Day, but were a shadow of the side that came away with all three points from the North East.

Leeds' fans wanted a quick start but were frustrated by The Pilgrims, who played with five midfielders, in the opening 45 minutes in West Yorkshire.

After a dire first half the visitors gave Leeds a helping hand when David Healy's left wing cross was turned into his own net by Peter Gilbert.

Plymouth came close to equalising but Frazer Richardson made a superb last ditch tackle to deny David Friio as the home side opted to hit Argyle on the break.

Healy (pictured) made sure of the points when he lobbed Romain Larrieu in the closing stages, but that was not the end of the drama.

There was still time for Stephen Crawford to get his name on the scoresheet, however it proved nothing more than a consolation.
