Crysencio Summerville scores the penaltyCrysencio Summerville fought off Joel Piroe to take Leeds United's late penalty to send them 2-1 up against Hull City

Late goals from Crysencio Summerville and Dan James ensured Leeds United stayed in the Championship's automatic promotion places after a 3-1 win over Hull City at Elland Road.

Sam Byram headed Leeds ahead early on after Summerville's shot had been saved, but Hull drew level thanks to an excellent Fabio Carvalho finish.

Leeds missed some excellent chances before the break as Hull posed a threat in the early part of the second half.

Mateo Joseph hit the Hull post with 12 minutes to go before Summerville found the net from the spot after he was fouled by Regan Slater while James sealed victory with a remarkable long range shot.

The win keeps Leeds in second place after leaders Ipswich Town's late win over Southampton and Leicester City's victory over Norwich earlier on Easter Monday.

Daniel Farke's side are a point behind Ipswich and one ahead of Leicester, who have a game in hand.

Hull remain in ninth place and are six points off the play-off spots as their winless run extended to six matches.

Leeds wrapped up the win in emphatic fashion as they worked the ball to James on the counter from a Hull corner, with the Wales international then firing home from just past the halfway line.
