Leeds saw off the Sky Blues in dramatic circumstances with a 3-2 victory as Kun Temenuzhkov struck in extra-time to seal a spot in the final.

Birmingham, who finished second behind United in the north, made light word of Ipswich Town as they ran out 3-0 winners to earn their shot at the PDL title.

United are yet to beat their counterparts this season having fallen to a 3-0 defeat at Thorp Arch before a 96th minute Izzy Brown goal earned a 2-2 draw in the reverse fixture.

The Whites welcome the Blues to Elland Road on Monday lunchtime with free entry for any supporters wishing to attend.
