We beat automatic promotion hopefuls Leeds United 2-0 at home!
I certainly didn’t expect this, because for most of the first half our performance was pretty abysmal. We looked scared in possession, kept giving the ball away and were overrun in midfield. Leeds should easily have been 2-0 up quite early on and had a stonewall penalty that for some reason (known only to the ref) wasn’t given, yet we went in at half time 1-0 up. It was a quick breakaway goal, almost on the stroke of half time, with a great finish by Neal Maupay. We were better for the last 25 minutes of the second half and some nice interplay in their box saw Sergi Canos slot the ball home for our second. Then a short while later we had another break but this time a last ditch save by their keeper denied Canos after a great solo run. I was disappointed with
Leeds in the last 20 minutes as their crosses were poor and we gained more confidence and had better control in midfield.
