Che Adams brace causes Marcelo Bielsa’s first league defeatPeterborough turn it around to go top of League OneChampionshipDespite enjoying over 70% of possession at Elland Road, Leeds lost 2-1 to Birmingham and their undefeated league record under Marcelo Bielsa in the process thanks to two first-half goals from Che Adams. Goalkeeper Bailey Peacock-Farrell should have kept out the opener as he was beaten at the near post but he could not do anything about the second, a counter-attack which resulted in a cool Adams finish. Ezgjan Alioski gave Leeds hope with five minutes left on the clock but it was not enough to maintain their undefeated record but they do remain top as Middlesbrough could only draw 0-0 at home against Swansea.
