Leeds 2-0 Millwall

Jermaine Beckford celebrates scoring a goal for Leeds
Jermaine Beckford has hit 23 goals for Leeds this season

Jermaine Beckford scored a goal in each half as Leeds defeated Millwall to boost their League One promotion hopes.

Millwall had the best chance early on when Gary Alexander's header was saved on the goal-line by Casper Ankergren.

But Beckford opened the scoring when he cut into the penalty box and curled a sublime left-footed shot into the top corner to cap a fine Leeds move.

Beckford wrapped up the win in injury time shooting past David Forde after a flick-on from Luciano Becchio.
