Tim Ream's Fulham tops Jack Harrison's Leeds in battle of English Championship giants

In a battle of two of the top teams in the English Championship, a former New York Red Bulls player helped lead his team over an ex-New York City FC standout.

On Saturday, Tim Ream, a Red Bulls defender before a transfer to Bolton Wanderers in 2012, helped lead Fulham to a 2-1 victory over Leeds United, which features Jack Harrison, who was a rising star with NYCFC before his transfer to Manchester City in 2018.

The 32-year-old Ream, a regular on the US men’s national team, played the full 90 minutes for Fulham, which raced in front on an Aleksandar Mitrovic penalty kick in the seventh minute.

Harrison also went the full 90 minutes for Leeds, which leveled through Patrick Bamford in the 54th minute before Josh Onomah netted the winner 15 minutes later.

Leeds are second in the Championship table, three points behind leaders West Brom, while Fulham are fourth, one point behind surging Sheffield Wednesday.
