    Background: LEEDS RETAINED THEIR HOLD ON THE TOP-OF-THE TABLE POSITION TODAY WITH A FIGHTING 20 WIN AGAINST MANCHESTER CITY. SECOND HALF GOALS BY JOHNNY GILES AND JACKIE CHARLTON CARRIED LEEDS' UNBEATEN RUN TO 22 GAMES.

    BEFORE TODAY'S PROGRAMME, LEEDS, MANCHESTER CITY AND MANCHESTER UNITED HELD THE TOP THREE PLACES IN THE FIRST DIVISION, SEPARATED ONLY BY GOAL AVERAGE. TONIGHT, LEEDS SUPERIOR GOALS TALLY KEPT THEM ON TOP, BUT MANCHESTER UNITED MOVED INTO SECOND PLACE.

    MANCHESTER CITY, DESPITE THEIR FAMOUS ATTACKING FAIR, FAILED TO MAKE THE MOST OF MANY GOOD CHANCES. THEY PLAYED BRILLIANTLY FOR THE FIRST HALF HOUR OF THE MATCH, AND MIGHT WELL HAVE BEEN IN THE LEAD DURING THE 12 MINUTES IN WHICH LEEDS DEFENDER BREMNER WAS OFF THE FIELD INJURED.

    BUT BREMNER RETURNED, AND AFTER HALF TIME LEEDS WENT AHEAD AS GILES RACED THROUGH UNMARKED TO TAP THE BALL PAST MULHEARN.

    LEEDS HELD ON TO THEIR INITIATIVE AND PUT THE SEAL ON A SPLENDED MATCH IN THE SECOND HALF WHEN JACKIE CHARLTON PUT IN A TYPICALLY ACCURATE HEADER AFTER GILES HAD PUT A HIGH BALL ACROSS THE CROWDED MANCHESTER CITY GOALMOUTH.
