Bristol Rovers   0 - 4   Leeds United

Bristol Rovers v Leeds Utd

Tottenham 2-0 Everton

Jermaine Beckford scored two as League One leaders Leeds condemned Bristol Rovers to a fourth consecutive defeat.

The striker latched on to Michael Doyle's pass to fire in the first, then on-loan Welsh international Sam Vokes added a second from close range.

Beckford wrong-footed Byron Anthony to make it 3-0 with a drive on 64 minutes and substitute Tresor Kandol completed the rout with a tap-in late on.

Rovers' Stuart Campbell hit the bar early on, but they were second-best.


Bristol Rovers boss Paul Trollope told BBC Radio Bristol:

"We're bitterly disappointed with tonight but there are a few areas of our play that were exposed by some very good individual players.

"We tried to be bold in the game after the results we had - by playing two strikers and another striker out on the right we showed our intentions.

"That was the philosophy we took, it didn't work and I'll take that on my shoulders and maybe food for thought for further games.

Leeds boss Simon Grayson told BBC Radio Leeds:

"It was a brilliant result for us - we asked the players for a performance and a reaction from the defeat at the weekend and we got that.

"We started the game brightly and got the goals but I think tonight epitomised our work ethic and quality, and there isn't much to complain about the performance and the result.

"We asked the players to crank it up a bit with our work ethic and creativity and they did that."
