Stuart Dallas bagged a match-winning brace for Marcelo Bielsa's Whites who survived an entire half with ten men plus the closing stages of the opening period after captain Liam Cooper was sent off.
The victory took Leeds on to 45 points and Graham Smyth the YEP's chief football writer, hands out the scores.
