New predicted final Championship table after Leeds United win v Leicester and Ipswich Town twist
Daniel Farke’s third-placed Whites headed to Friday night’s clash at leaders Leicester sat 14 points behind the Foxes but closed the gap to 11 points as Georginio Rutter’s close-range finish sealed an impressive 1-0 victory.
The triumph also brought Leeds to within six points of the division’s automatic promotion places and second-placed Ipswich Town who then looked destined to suffer just a second league defeat of the season when trailing 2-0 at Saturday’s hosts Birmingham City.

The Whites are now seven points adrift although Ipswich have a game in hand on both Leeds and Leicester who are four points clear at the top.
