Leeds United went into Saturday’s game against Sheffield Wednesday not only looking for bragging rights, but also seeking to take advantage over Sheffield United in the chase for the Championship automatic promotion spots.
A single goal from Jack Harrison in the second half returned all three points for manager Marcelo Bielsa’s side and we’ve opened up a three point gap on the Blades, and with Norwich drawing in Sunday’s fixture, we’re only four points off top spot now.
Statistics website Whoscored credited our dominance in the game with some favourable player ratings, but right back Luke Ayling took their star man award to lift Man of the Match with a rating of 7.88.
Completing the top five best performers on the day in their system was Ezgjan Alioski (7.77), Jack Harrison (7.65), Pablo Hernandez (7.55) and Pontus Jansson (7.36).
An extra mention for Tyler Roberts who also received a plus-seven score for his efforts on the day.
Now we’ve got our nose back in front, we just have to stay there and see if we can chase down Norwich now.
