Leeds dealt hammer blow by Collymore - David Lacey

Copy from Football Unlimited of 27/03/2000.

Leeds United's championship hopes may well have died here yesterday with "Leicester City" written on their graves. Where Manchester United had strolled to victory a week earlier David O'Leary's team stumbled to a defeat which has left them seven points behind the Premiership leaders with eight matches to play.

Anything in football is possible but it is hard to see Leeds overtaking Sir Alex Ferguson's side who, in addition to their points advantage, have a markedly superior goal difference. "The best team are winning the championship," O'Leary conceded afterwards. "Our target all along has been to finish in the top three for a Champions League place."

At least Leeds should satisfy that ambition, although their awareness of targets will need to show a distinct improvement on yesterday. Two shots from Harry Kewell, one hitting a post the other finding the net, were never going to be enough to get something from a fast, open game against a Leicester City team which had snapped out of its torpor of the previous weekend.
