Leeds led the do or die day, who needed help from Newcastle at Burnley.

The Magpies did their job so Leeds needed to scramble for safety in the last hour to avoid defeat.

And they were still at 0-0, thanks to Mbeumo’s lapse in the 56th minute.

There were golden opportunities on either side of half-time – and both had terrible endings.

And then came bees keeper David Rae, with one of the most important moments in the recent history of Leeds.

A cock of the highest order, without any pressure he swung Whites winger Rafinha straight into the top of the box.

The silky Brazilian then eliminated Raya before the Spaniard’s left side slid down Rafinha.

punishment, and a chance for salvation.

Rafinha departs from a distance of 12 yards – but the job is not done yet.

Burnley made it 2–1 at Turf Moor shortly after Brentford’s Sergi Canos drew 1–1 in West London.

A claret equalizer and the leads will be down – unless the whites have a late winner,

Brentford found himself under nine men in no time when Canoes was sent off for two quick yellows before Christopher Eager was injured, leaving no further subtotals to use.

A two-person advantage didn’t make it easy on the nerves.

But then Jack Harrison proceeded to fire the Leeds forward from the edge of the box in injury time and through a heavy deflection to safety.

He suffered a major setback before kick-off when Marsh revealed that the Patrick Bamford striker was out after testing positive for Covid.

The striker has played only nine games of the injury-prone season but was “fit and well” for this crunch clash on Friday.

A calm mind was needed – but Leeds could have been behind by ten seconds!

Diego Llorente gets the kick and tries to launch it overhead but breaks it straight into Tony, who was inside but had to settle for a corner.

A jumble of nerves from front to back, players running into each other, passing simple passes for throw-ins, and it looked like a long afternoon.

Then, in the 19th minute and on the news of a Newcastle penalty at Turf Moor, there was a huge roar from the far end.

Seconds later and when Gellhart pounced on Jack Harrison through the ball and slammed home, there was a stir among the Pyros.

Callum Wilson buried a spot-kick for Toon and the great escape continued until VAR intervened.

Gellhardt was inches offside, leaving home fans taunting ‘Leeds are falling apart again’.

But with Burnley down 1-0, a draw for Leeds would be fine.

The Whites began to dominate Brentford’s shortfall, but were accompanied by death in the rear.

Brian Mbumo skinned left-back junior Firpo and set up Mathias Jensen, who was rejected by Meslier.

And then a heavy touch from skipper Liam Cooper just before the break saw Mbumo play without any pressure, only to widen a huge opportunity for the forward.

A sweeping move cut Leeds off shortly after the break but Mbumo flashed his lines again, firing at Messlier for all the time in the world.

At the other end, Rafinha sets up Rodrigo to fire the desperate visitors ahead, only for Raya to get down to his right of refusal.

Fifty-six minutes in and Raya delivers a moment of madness that no one in Leeds will ever forget.

A howler of epic proportions, his underhit pass fell directly on Rafinha, who rammed into the box, took it to Raya and then got screwed over by his extended leg.

The Brazilian got up to pick up the pen, stopped and left on approach to send Raya the wrong way and slipped it to his right.

Leeds fans were in a tizzy, and doubled down when Callum Wilson fired Newcastle into a 2–0 lead at Burnley.

It was still time to scream, however, knowing Brentford’s victory would dishearten them.

, And they were collectively bricking it when the Canoes headed to Brentford level before Harrison settled it to death.
