Leeds United's improvement continued following a 3-1 win over out of form Reading at Elland Road.

Rob Hulse capped a superb debut for The Whites with a brace while David Healy notched his seventh goal for the club.

The visitors began the brighter of the sides, but it was Leeds who took the lead when Healy collected Aaron Lennon's through ball before finishing past Marcus Hahnemann.

Leeds have so often failed to finish off opposition of late at Elland Road, but there was no chance of a repeat thank to Hulse's second half brace.

The on-loan West Brom ace opened his account for his new club with a superb strike from 20 yards from Jermaine Wright's lay-off to end the visitors' resistance.

Hulse added a second shortly after to wrap up the points, but that was not the end of the scoring in West Yorkshire.

Lloyd Owusu pulled a goal back for Reading in the final minute, however it was nothing more than consolation.
