It was another hard pill to swallow as the boys in White were taken down once more while playing...hold up...we won?

Wait...this can't be right. Let me double check.

Wow. How about that. They did it. They actually did it.

In a stunning turn of fortune, Leeds United pocketed 3 points Saturday against Bolton Wanderers in front of the loyal fans at Elland Road, ending a five game winless streak in Championship play. All of this attributed to the fortunate foot of Micro Antenucci who put the white orb in the back of the web twice and gave fans something to stand for besides the fake funeral precession at the beginning of the match.

Bolton keeper Paul Rachubka could not stop Antenucci as he placed Mustapha Carayol's corner on the other side of the line (39') and returned for an encore with a goal curled from the far corner (62').

Bolton had a wisp of hope as Dean Moxey crossed to substitute Kaiyne Woolery who sent the ball home(74'). However, that hope was shattered with the final whistle.

This win does nothing to help the struggling club escape the clutches of Championship play, but it did offer the first taste of victory since January against Bristol City. Unfortunately for Bolton, this loss pushes the Wanderers even deeper into relegation territory.
