Leeds United   3 - 1   Bristol City

Highlights - Leeds 3-1 Bristol City

Leeds 3-1 Bristol City

Substitute Luciano Becchio scored a second-half hat-trick as Leeds beat Bristol City to record their first home league win in five matches.

Becchio, a second-half replacement for Davide Somma, headed Leeds into the lead but this was cancelled out by Jon Stead's close-range finish for City.

Two minutes later, Leeds regained the lead when Becchio slammed home after Lloyd Sam's shot was parried.

The Argentine completed his treble late on through another header.

Leeds have now taken 10 points from their last four matches, but had not earned maximum points at home since a 2-1 win over Sheffield United on 25 September.

City came into the game on the back of a five-game unbeaten run and for much of the game, they matched the home side.

Somma had a shot saved by City keeper David James and Bradley Johnson shot wide for Leeds, but at the other end City could have taken the lead had Jamal Campbell-Ryce been more accurate with a volley.

Becchio's introduction made all the difference to the home side and in the 66th minute he headed home Robert Snodgrass' cross to give them the lead.

But, two minutes later City were level when Albert Adomah's cross from the right caught the Leeds defence flat-footed and Stead swept the ball home from six yards.

However, with their very next attack Leeds regained the lead when James could only parry Sam's 20-yard drive and Becchio was on hand to fire home.

On-loan Sunderland defender George McCartney provided the cross for Becchio to head in his third and secure all three points for Leeds.

The two-goal advantage was preserved by a superb save from Kasper Schmeichel late on when he tipped over Steven Caulker's header and also denied City substitute Brett Pitmann.
