Hows that for Leeds

11 December 2010 06:00
Jonny Howson struck a superb late goal to seal a stunning fightback for Leeds, as they came from two goals down to win 3-2 at npower Championship rivals Burnley. Leeds skipper Howson curled home a low shot in off the post following a fine run in the 85th minute to clinch Leeds' fifth away win in the league this season and extend their unbeaten run to eight matches. Burnley went in at the interval with a two-goal cushion following goals from Brian Easton and Jay Rodriguez, who capitalised on some poor defending from United to seize control of the match. But Max Gradel sparked the Leeds comeback with an emphatic finish seven minutes into the second half, angling a shot into the bottom corner from 12 yards. Luciano Becchio hauled the visitors level with his sixth goal in five matches in the 66th minute after good work down the right between Paul Connolly and Gradel allowed the Argentinean to sweep home from close range. And the comeback was complete when Howson carried the ball to the edge of the area and struck a brilliant low shot in off the far post to snatch all three points for his side.
