Leeds United crowned Championship champions after Brentford lose at Stoke City

Brentford’s surprise defeat to Stoke Citymeans Leeds United cannot be caught atthe top of the Championship.

Leeds United have won the Championship title as a result of Brentford’s 1-0 loss to Stoke City on Saturday.

Marcelo Bielsa’s side saw promotion to the Premier League confirmed on Friday after West Brom were beaten 2-1 by Huddersfield Town.

Victory for Brentford would have lifted them above the Baggies into second place and closed the gap to Leeds to three points.

However, a first-half goal from Lee Gregory secured a win for Stoke at the bet365 Stadium, guaranteeing the Potters’ survival and crowning Leeds as champions a day before they face Derby County in their penultimate game of the season.

The result also means Brentford stay third, a point behind West Brom, with just one game to go.
