A hat-trick for Jack Harrison proved decisive, although a late Jarred Bowen miss came close to sharing the honours in an exciting end-to-end encounter in west London.
However, two further injury woes appeared as both Adam Forshaw and Junior Firpo were forced off midway through the first half with hamstring injuries, handing Marcelo Bielsa further selection headaches with only one player older than 20 on his substitutes bench.

With Leeds so low on senior players at present, they will be very grateful to hear the latest news, and praying that he can indeed be fit for Saturday’s clash with Newcastle United, in a game that the visiting side need to win.
