​Leeds United moved into 4th place in the EFL Sky Bet Championship table on Saturday following an impressive victory over automatic promotion chasers Brighton & Hove Albion at Elland Road.

The league's runaway top goalscorer, Chris Wood, was on hand with both goals for the home side, finding the back of the net with a penalty and a looping header to had the Whites all three points.

Wood's goals against the Seagulls means that the New Zealand international striker has now scored against 18 different teams in the second tier of English football already this season, leaving just five Championship sides that he hasn't found the back of the net against.

The 25-year-old former West Bromwich Albion and Leicester City man is on fire at the moment and his brace on Saturday has put Wood at the top of the scoring charts in the Championship with 23 goals, two more than Newcastle United's Dwight Gayle.
