Leeds ready to join Europe's elite - Daniel Taylor

Copy from Football Unlimited of 04/05/2000.

Leeds United have rediscovered the art of winning with an impeccable sense of timing. Although seldom illuminating, they did enough to outshine limited opponents here last night while bloodying Liverpool's nose in the skirmish for European places.

Whether David O'Leary's youthful team will qualify for the Champions League or the Uefa Cup remains to be seen, but at this juncture they can harbour serious aspirations of rubbing shoulders with Manchester United et al in Europe's premier competition next season.

An ultimately comfortable victory, achieved through Michael Bridges' 20th goal of the season, Michael Duberry's first since November 1996 and Darren Huckerby's first in six months, hoists Leeds back into the Premiership's top three courtesy of Liverpool's failings against Leicester City.
