Leeds United v Fulham preview, fixture played at Elland Road

United We Stand

So much talk before the game was how Leeds United could fall out of the automatic places on Saturday.

Instead, we ended the game 3 points clear of third and the only side in the top 7 to win.

Some said we were in crisis and falling apart again. Well if we were, we managed to put ourselves back together without falling below second spot!

From kick off yesterday we looked up for this one and it was possibly the most dominant 1-0 win I have seen. If you didn’t see the score line, you would be forgiven for thinking it was 5-0. We had 69% of the possession and 21 shots.

That’s not to say Saturday was without nerves, the final few moments were watched with bated breath.

It would have been a more relaxed end had one of those chances gone into the back of the net, but this is Leeds United we like a little drama.

It could have easily been 2-0 in the first 10 minutes with chances falling to both Helder Costa and Liam Copper. However, it was Luke Ayling who broke the deadlock with his goal on 15 minutes.

We outplayed Bristol for most of the game and they just didn’t have an answer. Kalvin Phillips in particular was outstanding and showed once again why he is being talked about in the England circles.

Patrick Bamford was unlucky not to score yesterday and deserved a goal for his performance, his work rate was something we missed when Jean-Kevin Augustine came on who just seems to be lacking match fitness at the moment.

The atmosphere was phenomenal inside Elland Road and the players responded.

13 games to go.

United we stand.
