Leeds United’s Samuel Sáiz hits swift double to halt Bristol City’s charge

A wet and windy West Country afternoon could not deter the Bristol City faithful. The 25,000-strong support came in expectation rather than hope as Lee Johnson’s high-flying Robins looked to see off another Championship heavyweight on their dream run towards the automatic promotion places. But Samuel Sáiz rained on their parade and put fresh force into Leeds’s bid to return to the Premier League after 14 years.The former Huesca midfielder has risen from obscurity to play a starring role for Thomas Christensen and here he scored two goals inside the first 15 minutes to end his sides’s three-game losing streak. The result was put beyond doubt when the Hamburg loanee Pierre-Michel Lasogga glanced a header home in the 68th minute.
