United keeper Casper Ankergren made two fine saves in the first half hour from recalled Yeovil striker Jon Obika.[LNB]Yeovil, unbeaten in their previous six matches, then had a 36th minute penalty claim rejected when Obika went down under the weight of an Andrew Hughes challenge before the home side seized a 42nd minute advantage through a fortuitous Bradley Johnson goal.[LNB]The winger crossed the ball towards the near post where Beckford narrowly failed to get a touch, but Glovers goalkeeper Alex McCarthy allowed the ball to zip through and into the far corner for Johnson's seventh goal of the season.[LNB]Substitute Max Gradel underlined Leeds' second half improvement by taking a pass from Leigh Bromby on the right and scoring from a narrow angle with 20 minutes remaining[LNB]Beckford was twice denied by an offside flag but his patience was rewarded when he pounced on a mistake by Terrell Forbes and shot into the top corner in the 79th minute. Two minutes later Robert Snodgrass' cross allowed substitute Tresor Kandol to head in Leeds' fourth.[LNB][LNB]
