Blake double sees off nine-man Watford as Leeds leap to third - David Hopps

Copy from Football Unlimited of 15/02/2006.

As any West Yorkshire accountant will tell you, it is not often of late that the numbers have fallen in Leeds United's favour but they did with a vengeance last night as the dismissal of Watford's goalkeeper Ben Foster and their striker Darius Henderson gave the home side a two-man advantage for the last half-hour of a pulsating affair.

Leeds finally made the advantage pay nine minutes from full-time. Jay DeMerit's slip allowed Richard Cresswell to scamper down the left and, although David Healy's initial shot was blocked, Robbie Blake's second goal of the night allowed Leeds to leapfrog Watford once more as the closest challengers to Sheffield United.

Ken Bates, the Leeds chairman, was in Monaco and had come over all romantic. "What a pity this game clashes with Valentine's night," he noted in the programme.
