The Limbs At Elland Road After Leeds Move Out Of Relegation Zone Were Incredible

Elland Road erupted into a cauldron of noise when a late Pascal Struijk header lifted Leeds United out of the Premier League relegation zone on Sunday afternoon.

It has been a tough campaign for the Whites, who have only won eight games in the league all season, but they somehow managed to scrape a 1-1 draw against Brighton, meaning they sit one point ahead of relegation rivals Burnley.

Things didn't get off to the best of starts for Leeds when former Manchester United striker Danny Welbeck opened the scoring for Graham Potter's side in the 21st minute.

It was a deserved goal for the visitors after a bright start but Jesse Marsch's side didn't give up and in the 91st minute, Leeds youngster Joe Gelhardt, who has been a shining light for the club this season, produced a moment of individual brilliance.

The 20-year-old forward somehow managed to dance his way past the Brighton defence before lifting a ball over to defender Pascal Struijk, who was waiting at the back post.

Struijk headed home and it sparked some incredibe scenes at Elland Road. Just look at how much it meant.

Leeds currently sit one point ahead of Burnley in 17th place, although the Clarets have two games remaining against Aston Villa and Newcastle.

That game against Steven Gerrard's side on Thursday could prove vital in their fight for Premier League survival.

Jesse Marsch knows they will need some luck on the final day of the season. "We are alive right now," he said in his post-match press conference.

"We need to fight for every point and any point gets us closer. Burnley and Everton have games in hand. We need some help and be ready for next weekend."

Do you think Leeds can survive?
