Well, that certainly was a tough one, wasn’t it?
Another win under the belt, still undefeated and top of the table by virtue of goal difference. A pessimistic person would say that it’s all downhill from here.
Leeds started off the game as the much more dominant side, creating plenty of chances for themselves, but sadly they couldn’t convert any of them.
Need a striker who can put the half chances away not like Bamford

Thankfully though, there wasn’t much panic about the visitors making the breakthrough as the United defence kept them at arm’s length not just in the first half, but throughout the entire game.
Why does it never feel like that when the game is on ?????

Great defence at the moment. Hopefully Dallas not out too long as he was superb again last night. As for White & Cooper – brick walls!

The second half went more or less the same way as the first, with the home side huffing and puffing at the Brentford door, however they just couldn’t break the door down, and Leeds fans were starting to get nervous.
Cmon lads. Someone run at them in the area. Take em on

However, just as it seemed like Leeds were set to drop points at home for the second straight game, on-loan forward Eddie Nketiah jumped off the bench and having made a beautiful run into the box to get on the end of fellow substitute Helder Costa’s cross to fire into an empty net and give them the lead.
About time we had a goal. Should have been at least 3-0 by now.

With the defence keeping their opponents at bay, all that was left was for the home side to see out the game and collect the three points.
Yesssssssss sexy Eddie with a lovely tap in after Pontus gets megged. Thanks very much. Goodnight.

He was only on the pitch for 4 minutes and scores. He's gonna be lethal this season!!
