Patrick Bamford
Patrick Bamford’s opener helped ensure Leeds will finish in the top half of the Premier League table

Patrick Bamford’s 16th Premier League goal of the season helped Leeds United defeat Southampton in front of 8,000 fans at St Mary’s Stadium.

Bamford, who had earlier missed a chance when he only had goalkeeper Alex McCarthy to beat, flicked the ball into the net following Rodrigo’s ball over the Saints defence.

Leeds added a second in injury time when they countered and Bamford’s strike was parried by McCarthy, with Tyler Roberts blasting in the rebound.

Southampton’s best chance came early on but Che Adams’ header was tipped over by Leeds goalkeeper Kiko Casilla.

The victory takes Leeds up above Arsenal and Everton into eighth and guarantees Marcelo Bielsa’s side a top-10 finish.

Southampton remain 14th in the Premier League with one game of the season remaining.
