Leeds end mini slump

Leeds United ended their mini-slump with a 3-1 success over Coventry City at Elland Road.

The Sky Blues had the better of the first half, but The Whites led at the interval thanks to Jonathon Douglas' crisp volley.

The visitors levelled matters just before the hour mark through Don Hutchison, his second goal at the ground following his effort for Millwall earlier in the season.

However, the goal only galvanised the home side and just minutes later the industrious Robbie Blake had restored Leeds' advantage.

Richard Cresswell wrapped up the points with a third late on, his first for the club in The Championship, with a low shot.

Coventry should have pulled one back, but Gary McSheffrey, who netted the winner at QPR, saw his penalty hit the crossbar.
