New predicted final Championship table after Leeds United win v Leicester and Ipswich Town twist
Daniel Farke’s third-placed Whites headed to Friday night’s clash at leaders Leicester sat 14 points behind the Foxes but closed the gap to 11 points as Georginio Rutter’s close-range finish sealed an impressive 1-0 victory.
The triumph also brought Leeds to within six points of the division’s automatic promotion places and second-placed Ipswich Town who then looked destined to suffer just a second league defeat of the season when trailing 2-0 at Saturday’s hosts Birmingham City.
There was, though, a late twist in the tale as the Tractor Boys recovered to bag a 2-2 draw but Leeds still ended the weekend two points closer to Ipswich than they were. The Whites are now seven points adrift although Ipswich have a game in hand on both Leeds and Leicester who are four points clear at the top.

With the US diplomatic backing, and with more of its ammunition supplies being shipped to Israel, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has made it clear that to achieve his goals of rescuing hostages - but more importantly, in reality, the destruction of Hamas - then a ceasefire is a non-starter. Despite their admirable work, in truth they won't get very far for the time being because neither of the protagonists - Hamas and Israel - seem awfully interested in a ceasefire anyway.
We need to talk about Ukraine. While the world’s attention has been focused on the war between Israel and Hamas, grim tremors have been shaking that rich, black soil. Ukraine’s counteroffensive has failed – or, in Volodymyr Zelensky’s words, “did not achieve the desired results”.
