It was another mixed night for Leeds United and manager Marcelo Bielsa as we simply couldn’t make our dominance pay as we headed to Deepdale for Tuesday evening’s Championship clash with Preston North End.
22 efforts on goal in total only produced three that tested the goalkeeper, and Preston predictably took the lead given their far fewer chances. Late substitute, Eddie Nketiah, did himself no harm as he came on and salvaged a point with three minutes remaining in the game but few will look at the match as anything other than two points dropped.
Statistics website Whoscored only had two players with a seven plus score after that 90 minutes, so Kalvin Phillips again takes Man of the Match with 7.48.
Goalscorer Nketiah took second spot despite only having seven touches and 14 minutes as he picked up 7.20, and completing the top five best performers on the night were Mats Klich (6.95), Luke Ayling (6.77) and Ben White (6.76).
Two points dropped but we stay in second spot, two points shy of West Bromwich Albion.
