Plus links for the day

This will be a match that will be remembered for a long time. A long, long time.

Leeds pull out an improbable victory over Blackburn Rovers in the final minute of stoppage time to extend their lead at the top of the table. Leeds are now three points ahead of Norwich City, who had their own stoppage time madness against Nottingham Forest, and six vital points ahead of West Bromwich Albion. Leeds are also a mind-boggling 14 points away from 7th placed Birmingham City after Boxing Day.

This season is delightful madness, may it continue.

On to the links.
