- Stuart Dallas saves Leeds from defeat against bottom side Luton
- Brentford keep pressure on top two with fourth successive win
The Championship leaders Leeds needed a Stuart Dallas equaliser to earn a point against the division’s bottom side Luton. Harry Cornick gave the visitors the lead early in the second half with a superb strike to spark hope of a shock victory at Elland Road.
However, 13 minutes later Dallas calmly slotted past Simon Sluga in the Luton goal to secure a draw that extends Leeds’ lead over West Brom at the top to four points – Albion face Sheffield Wednesday on Wednesday.

Aleksandar Mitrovic left it late to ensure Fulham maintained their promotion challenge with a 1-0 win against Swansea, having missed a penalty minutes earlier.
The Serbia striker connected with Aboubakar Kamara’s right-wing cross four minutes into injury time to deliver his side’s first win in four games and boost their hopes of breaking into the top two. But a few minutes earlier it appeared as though he would be the villain when he was denied from the spot by the goalkeeper Freddie Woodman after Neeskens Kebano had gone down under a challenge from Connor Roberts.

- Tue, 11 Feb 2020 15:30:07 +0000: Why Premier League clubs are turning to an Australian bank in big numbers - Swansea City | The Guardian
Teams in England’s top two divisions are taking sizeable loans from Macquarie, at times mortgaged against future TV earnings
It was once dubbed the “vampire kangaroo” and accused of “feasting on Britain’s creaking infrastructure” after investing in companies such as Thames Water and avoiding tax through a legal but controversial web of subsidiaries in Luxembourg and the Cayman Islands. But Macquarie Group Limited is a growing influence on English football, underlined on one day last month by Leicester and Wolves extending sizeable loans with the Australian investment bank that are mortgaged against future TV earnings.
Now with a portfolio that also includes Bournemouth, Crystal Palace, Middlesbrough, Sheffield United, Southampton, Swansea City, Watford, West Brom and Wolves, a company estimated to manage almost £288bn worth of assets has emerged as the second-biggest lender, behind Barclays bank, in an industry where owners continue to chase the dream. Since 2013, and encouraged by increased transparency in the game following the introduction of Uefa’s financial fair play regulations, Macquarie estimates that it has completed more than $1.5bn in loans across Europe’s major leagues, specialising in “transfer financing” and “media and sponsorship rights monetisation”.

- Sat, 08 Feb 2020 17:30:18 +0000: Tom Lawrence completes fightback for upwardly mobile Derby against Swansea - Swansea City | The Guardian
Things seem to be clicking for Derby County at just the right time. Phillip Cocu’s side continue to creep up the Championship table after Tom Lawrence lashed home the winning goal in a topsy-turvy game to earn their first away league win since the opening day.
This season has been a slow-burner for Derby but, after a victory at Swansea in which they fought back from 2-1 down, they are poised for a late play-off push. As Cocu acknowledged, it is no coincidence that their upturn in fortunes corresponds with Wayne Rooney’s arrival last month, having won six of their nine matches since the former England striker pulled on a Derby shirt for the first time

- Thu, 30 Jan 2020 10:20:52 +0000: Swansea’s Conor Gallagher: ‘Heart surgery made me not take anything for granted’ - Swansea City | The Guardian
The 19-year-old, on loan from Chelsea, discusses Frank Lampard, his future at Stamford Bridge and his brothers’ support
End-of-season awards can be deemed trivial but, at Chelsea, the academy player of the year accolade carries considerable weight. Just ask Conor Gallagher, the latest recipient of that prize. “The previous three winners all play for the first team now, so there’s a bit of pressure,” the 19-year-old says, his smile broadening, referring to Reece James, Mason Mount and Fikayo Tomori, fixtures of Frank Lampard’s squad after spending last season on loan in the Championship. “I was buzzing when I heard I had won, knowing the players that have won it and what they have gone on to do.”
For Gallagher, who joined Swansea on loan a fortnight ago having shone at Charlton in the first half of the season, that award was a welcome addition to an already handsome silverware collection. Three years ago Gallagher won the Under-17 World Cup with England under the now Swansea head coach, Steve Cooper and, last season, the teenager picked up a Europa League winner’s medal, having been an unused substitute as Chelsea beat Arsenal in Baku. “They are in a drawer at home,” he says. “They’re safe, don’t worry about that. I’ve got all the ones from Chelsea Under-18s as well. My World Cup shirt is framed, which is always nice to see because it always brings back good memories. It’s where everyone can see it when they walk in the house.”
