Pirates Gift-wrap 2nd Place!

Leeds United's hopes of promotion were dealt a massive boost this evening as Bristol Rovers outplayed Charlton in an entertaining game at The Memorial Stadium. A goal in each half was enough to secure a deserved 2-1 victory for the Gasmen, a result that flattered the Londoners, who were second best throughout. A brutal match that saw Charlton lose a man inside 30 seconds with a broken leg continued in the same vein for all 103 minutes. The Addicks hit a consolation in the dying seconds.

The result leaves the South London outfit 5 points behind The Mighty Whites, having played 2 games more and with an inferior goal difference. Focus now turns to Leeds, with Walsall the visitors to Elland Road tomorrow night, the first of a triple header of home games, one would expect that gap to be stretched further. 

The importance of this week's games has just been amplified, hopefully the lads can find their shooting boots that were seemingly left at Thorp Arch for the weekend trip to Orient. A maximum return would make Leeds red-hot favourites for a top-two spot come May!

I've said all week that these next 3 games will go a long way to deciding the outcome of this season, with a potential 10 point gap over Charlton and 9 point gap over Colchester the prize, lets hope Leeds don't disappoint!
