Michael Sollbauer’s own goal secured awin that puts Leeds United on the brinkof promotion to the top flight.

Leeds United need one more point to secure a long-awaited return to the Premier League after beating rock-bottom Barnsley 1-0.

Michael Sollbauer’s own goal proved the difference in a tense clash at Elland Road on Thursday, putting Marcelo Bielsa’s men on the brink of promotion.

In the face of a relentless challenge from Brentford, Leeds – relegated from the top flight in 2004 – now have a six-point cushion over the third-placed Bees, with a trip to Derby County coming up on Sunday.

Barnsley, meanwhile, must now win their final two matches to have any chance of staying up.
