Watford v Leeds United: Championship – live | Championship

Key events

And it’s all over at Ewood Park, with Ipswich winning 1-0 to go top of the Championship table. Leeds will have to win tonight to go back to No 1.

Here’s everything that’s been happening elsewhere in the Champo. Ipswich are still 1-0 up against Blackburn, with not long left.

Of course, worth noting that there are a few names in that Leeds line-up who suffered heartbreak during the internationals: Joe Rodon, Ethan Ampadu and Dan James all featured in Wales’ playoff loss to Poland, with James missing in the penalty shootout. A tough one to get over, sure, but Rodon and Ampadu have been a sparkling pair at the back together while James has 12 goals this season. Here’s to what’s next.

The teams

Here they are …


Hello, hello, hello and welcome to coverage of Leeds United’s trip to Watford. It’s all going rather well for the boys from Elland Road, having gone 13 games unbeaten in the league, 12 of those wins, overturning Leicester’s 17-point lead at the top in the process. Wild.

Meanwhile Watford have been doing what Watford do best: sacking the boss. Valérien Ismaël is their latest managerial departure, with Tom Cleverley in as interim – that’s one to make you feel old. Cleverley began his stint in charge with a 1-0 win over Birmingham but his first game at Vicarage Road isn’t going to be easy. Leeds won the reverse fixture earlier in the season 3-0 and Daniel Farke seems to love winning the Championship; he won’t settle for stopping at 13.

Kick-off is at 8pm GMT (BST, can’t wait to see you boo). Drop me a line with your thoughts, worries, weekend plans, whatever. Cheers!
