Leeds one point from Premier League promotion after win over Barnsley

Leeds United are so close to the promised land now that they could be a Premier League team again before kicking another ball. This victory leaves them needing just a point to clinch promotion, and though there may be a repeat of last season’s feistiness when they go to Derby on Sunday in search of it, there is every possibility that West Bromwich Albion or Brentford will have blinked first in the meantime.As it stands Leeds are five points clear with two games remaining, so something cataclysmic will need to happen to prevent a return to the top flight after 16 years, even if there have been false dawns before and Derby and Charlton might not be the opponents Marcelo Bielsa would choose at such a nervy stage of the season.
