It has taken 38 games but Leeds United have finally overhauled Leicester City to go top of the Championship table, after beating Millwall at Elland Road.

Kaiser Chiefs bassist Simon Rix told BBC Radio Leeds' Don't Go To Bed Just Yet podcast it was a "professional" performance from Daniel Farke's side:

"Another win! It was nice, wasn't it?

"It was quite professional and another one where you felt a bit nervous going into it. given it was Millwall and they are on a good run. Neil Harris is back too. Saying that, I actually predicted it would be 2-0, and it was, so I'm happy.

"As long as we got the first goal, I was confident. There was that little period at 1-0 where they made us feel really awkward, because it wouldn't be Leeds United if we didn't!

"Overall I thought it was very professional."

BBC Radio Leeds' Adam Pope added: "Honestly, I took an inordinate amount of pleasure from that game. I don't know if it is because it was Millwall and Harris, and we've seen so much stuff go on in the past, but I just thought the way they went about it was very professional.

"It never felt like it was going to get away from them. There was a little moment when I thought, 'It could go 1-1 here' but the way they handled the game was superb. They just didn't get involved in that fight.

"If this season goes the way we want it to go, that sort of game is the one where you think, 'Yes, this side knows exactly what they are doing, the manager knows exactly what he is doing, and they are really mature and know how to go about it'.

"At no point did I really fear for them. This clean sheet record is ridiculous now - I think it's nine in the past 12 games for [Illan] Meslier."
