Leeds triumph in the Yorkshire Derby to get their first win of the season. First half pressure fails to bring any goals as Ian Baird (twice), Bobby Davison and Noel Blake are all denied. The best chance comes when Davison heads against the bar but it's he who opens the scoring when he's given a simple finish after David Batty's shot bounces up off a Barnsley defender. Three points are sealed when Vince Hilaire finishes off a good move involving Batty and John Sheridan.
