Leeds United’s recent efforts in fighting back from behind in matches caught up with us as despite dominating the game against Hull City last Saturday, we ended 2018 with defeat.
Hull scored with two of their three chances on target to take a 2-0 victory and all three points, but we really should’ve come out of the game with something with 22 chances overall and seven between the sticks.
All that was missing was that clinical touch, but most fans knew we’d have days like this but the clear positive is recent efforts still see us top the Championship table and we still have a three-point lead over Norwich City.
Statistics website Whoscored had a clear Man of the Match for us in their system of ratings and that was usually reliable Pablo Hernandez with a score of 7.76.
Completing the top five best performers on the day were Adam Forshaw (7.22), Mats Klich (7.04), Jack Clarke (6.75) and Ezgjan Alioski (6.72).
Had we found the net or taken a point I’m sure those scores would’ve been higher as the opposition clearly got a boost, in general, following their defensive efforts.
