Leeds returned to winning ways with a much improved performance at Elland Road. In a match between two teams hopelessly out of form, it was the home team that came away with the spoils.
Lu ke Murphy was the first man with a chance-denied by a last ditch tackle, but the former Crewe midfielder wasn't to be denied for long-midway through the half finishing well from McCormacks pass. Blackpool had their chances, but it was Leeds who deservedly led at the break.
The second half saw Leeds continue to press-McCormack going close, before Murphy grabbed his second of the game, sinking home after Noel Hunt's flick on.
The double were Murphys first goal since the opening day of the season when he scored a last minute winner against Brighton, and it was by some distance his best Leeds performance so far-showing why The Whites paid £1 million for him last summer.
With a 2 goal cushion, there was only one winner, as the visitors looked short on confidence, and desperately seeking the end of the season.
Three big points today, and a much improved performance, but this needs to be matched for the remaining few games..
