Leeds United’s 3-2 win against Millwall at Elland Road on Saturday afternoon saw them return to second position in the Championship table.
Leeds’ front-man Pablo Hernandez put in a fantastic performance to help his side come from behind to secure the 3-2 win, and they leapfrogged Sheffield United in the race for automatic promotion to the Premier League.
Patrick Bamford, who joined Leeds from Middlesbrough last summer, took to social networking site Twitter early on Sunday morning to express his delight on the game. He tweeted:

Bamford had an opportunity to add another goal to his tally but missed a penalty in the first half, but the 25-year-old’s miss didn’t prove costly for the Whites, as they managed to earn all three points in the end.
Some Leeds fans responded to his tweet:

We need you firing mate for the last run in. You’ve had problems with injuries but everyone is behind you and these big games are the reason we signed you. Top player and prolific in front of goal when on form. Get your confidence up again and send us where we belong #lufc

Next up for Leeds is an away fixture at St. Andrew’s against Birmingham City, who have recorded five consecutive defeats, and the Whites should be able to earn another three points in their ongoing quest for promotion.
