The white club defeated Stoke City 5-0 and is closer to the Premier. Ian Poveda did not play.

The fight for the promotion to the first division of football in England gradually comes to an end. The club led by the Argentine Marcelo returned to be the leader of the Championship and in the absence of four dates for the end of the competition, they dream of promotion to the Premier League.

With the English-Colombian Ian Poveda on the bench for the entire match, the white team defeated Stoke City 5-0 and is running as one of the clubs that will get direct promotion at the end of the season.

Mateusz Klich (44 ‘), Helder Costa (47 ′), Liam Cooper (57’), Pablo Hernández (72 ‘), and Patrick Bamford (93’) were in charge of scoring for the home team, whose victory left them in the first position of the table with 81 points, one more than its maximum pursuer West Bromwich Albion.

It must be remembered that the two teams that finish in the first position in the Championship are the ones that ascend directly to the Premier League, so the Poveda team is close to the goal, since four dates until the end of the season, Leeds maintains a six point difference with Brenfort, who is third overall.
