Watch: Conor Shaughnessy Provides Sublime Assist As Leeds Just Keep Winning

Leeds United continued their extremely promising run of form with a 3-2 win over Ipswich Town on Saturday evening to remain on the top of the Championship.

Thomas Christiansen's men are ahead of Wolves and Cardiff on goal difference and there is a noticeable air of confidence around Elland Road these days which is encouraging some attractive football.

A good example of this can be seen by a certain 21-year-old Galway man bringing the ball out of defence and laying on an excellent assist for the opening goal of the game.

Conor Shaughnessy was rewarded for his meteoric rise up the ranks this season with a new contract during the week, and he wasted no time in showing the Leeds fans exactly what they hope to see more of as he parted Ipswich's defence with a through ball for Pierre-Michel Lasogga to finish.

Now that is very encouraging to see.

As much as we're all aware that Ireland need options up front, we could also do with some bodies at the back, particular ones who can actually bring a ball out of defence and pick a pass.

Without wanting to put any pressure on the young man's shoulders, he is someone to keep an eye on this season and we're sure that Martin O'Neill will be well aware of his progress.

Great stuff from Conor Shaughnessy, hopefully it's a sight we get used to seeing this season.
