With Bradford City out of the FA Cup, just Huddersfield Town and Leeds United were in action this weekend from West Yorkshire.
Ross McCormack, recently named Championship Player of the Month, scored once again for Leeds United, but a late Troy Deeney goal denied United all three points. Watford started the game brightly, with Deeney opening the scoring after just 12 minutes. Cristian Battocchio’s goal on the stroke of half-time saw the Hornets go 2-0 up, and Brian McDermott had to find a way of rallying his troops, and getting a response from Leeds in the second half. United’s response was almost immediate, with Danny Pugh’s goal from a tight angle a couple of minutes after the restart grabbing a goal back for the Elland Road side, and Matt Smith equalised in the 56th minute, with a close range header.

Leeds sit just one point off the play-off places, in eighth, but with McCormack’s impressive form continuing, there is every possibility that Leeds can move up into the play-offs this weekend.
Huddersfield Town suffered defeat in a close game away at Ipswich Town, to end their streak of three consecutive wins. James Vaughan, strongly linked with Celtic this week, missed a penalty for the Terriers midway through the first half, but Danny Ward scored after 35 minutes to give the visitors the lead. The lead lasted just 15 minutes, however, with Ipswich striker David McGoldrick equalising for the Portman Road side. There were chances for both sides, in what was an evenly contested game, but it was to be the home side that grabbed all three points, with Daryl Murphy heading home from a free kick in the 89th minute, to send the Terriers home empty-handed. Defeat for Huddersfield sees them sit 11th in the Championship table, 5 points off the play-offs.
