Sport: Leeds will face the winner of Southampton and West Bromwich in the final at Wembley on May 26.

After last year’s relegation, Leeds have had a good season in level two. The team still failed to beat Leicester and Ipswich in the battle for the top two places, but the hope of moving up again is still alive.

The white shirts secured a place in the final after they beat Norwich in the first leg of the second semi-final match.

Only five minutes had been played when Ilia Gruev tricked in a free kick to make it 1-0. Barely fifteen minutes later, Joel Piroe headed in 2-0, and just before the break the third of the game came. Georginio Rutter clinched the ball onto the crossbar and into the goal.

After the break, Crysencio Summerville made the final score 4-0. The first game was scoreless.

Norwich must settle for another season in level two. The club moved down from the Premier League in the 2021/22 season.
