Leeds United boss Simon Grayson was a happy man after they closed the gap on the teams in the play off positions to two points.
Leeds beat fellow play off hopefuls Millwall at Elland Road thanks to two superb strikes from leading scorer Jermaine Beckford.
Speaking on the official site Grayson said “It was a big result against a good side.”
Leeds finally broke the deadlock just past the half hour when Beckford cut in from the right to give the Millwall keeper no chance with a curling left foot shot, Grayson was quick to praise his 23 goal leading goalscorer saying “That`s what he can do as a goalscorer, that was Jermaine all over when he can produce moments of quality like that.”
Beckford wrapped the game up in injury time with another sweet strike with his left foot, Grayson was delighted to take the three points and knew the significance, continuing he said “We knew the significance of the game, although you try and play it down. We knew we couldn`t afford to lose.”
Leeds now travel to West Yorkshire rivals Huddersfield Town on Saturday lunch time hoping to improve on their patchy away form.
