Second-half goals by Bamford, Dallas and Raphinha lift Leeds up to 10th place
Second-half goals by Patrick Bamford, Stuart Dallas and Raphinha ensured Leeds United beat Southampton to move up to 10th.
Southampton started brightly, with Jannik Vestergaard heading wide after five minutes.
The visitors were awarded a penalty in the 33rd minute for a foul on Nathan Tella by Diego Llorente, but the decision was overturned following a VAR review.
Bamford put Leeds in front two minutes after half-time, latching on to Tyler Roberts’ through-ball before firing into the bottom-right corner for his 13th goal of the season.
Southampton goalkeeper Alex McCarthy denied Bamford a second before Dallas toe-poked home from the edge of the penalty area to double Leeds’ advantage with 12 minutes remaining.
Raphinha curled a low free-kick beyond McCarthy to score Leeds’ third on 84 minutes and seal the victory.
A run of eight matches without a win leaves Southampton in 14th, five points behind Leeds.
