With poor recent form, Leeds United are back on track as we built on our earlier draw by taking a 1-0 victory over Bristol City at the weekend.

Luke Ayling’s solitary goal 16 minutes into the tie was enough to return all three points as we narrowed the gap on Championship leaders West Bromwich Albion.

In 1967, goalkeeper Gary Sprake unfortunately gifted Liverpool a goal as he threw the ball into his own net - which defender was he actually aiming for?

With our customary control of the game given manager Marcelo Bielsa’s preferred style of play, statistics website Whoscored surprisingly didn’t have great over all ratings for the players, but 28-year-old Ayling took their star man award for Man of the Match with a score of 8.09.

Skipper Liam Cooper followed closely behind in second place with a score of 8.00. Completing the top five best performers on the day in their eyes were Kalvin Phillips (7.75), Helder Costa (7.14) and Mats Klich (7.13).

Onto Reading, hopefully another three points and a win and then we see if Lee Johnson’s Robins can do us a favour when they face Bristol City themselves this coming weekend.

Was Ayling The Right Choice Here?
