GOALS FROM SAM Clucas and Joe Allen helped Stoke upset Championship leaders Leeds today.

Clucas opened the scoring shortly after half-time, before Pontus Jansson’s sending-off on 76 minutes made life more difficult for the visitors.

Allen doubled his side’s advantage two minutes from time, before Ezgjan Alioski grabbed a last-gasp consolation.

It was the end of an eventful week for Leeds in which ‘spygate’ and its fallout dominated headlines.

Marcelo Bielsa’s side are now just a point ahead of Norwich at the Championship’s summit.

Elsewhere, Irish international Alan Browne scored his ninth goal of the season in Preston’s 4-1 win away to QPR.

Fellow Irish international Sean Maguire also started for Alex Neil’s side.
