Watford 2-2 Leeds United

Championship

Leeds secured a late 2-2 draw at Watford on Good Friday but missed the chance to reclaim top spot in the Championship.

After Ipswich’s 1-0 win at Blackburn saw them move above Leicester and Leeds to the summit, Daniel Farke’s side needed a victory to reclaim their previous position of league leaders.

But they faced a well-drilled Watford – especially in the first half – and the hosts deservedly took the lead through Vakoun Bayo (30).

Leeds replied in style though as Crysencio Summerville curled home a stunning effort (37), but this was matched by Emmanuel Dennis (44) as Watford went into the break ahead

The visitors dominated the ball for much of the second half without creating too much. However, after being on the field for just 25 seconds, Mateo Joseph (85) secured a much-needed point for Leeds.

Ultimately, Farke’s side missed the chance to go top of the Championship – although remain unbeaten in 2024 – now a point behind Ipswich and one ahead of Leicester – who lost to Bristol City earlier on Friday. Watford are also unbeaten in their first two games under interim manager Tom Cleverley and remain in 14th place.
