Leeds United were forced to fight back from behind to secure all three points against Wigan Athletic on Sunday, a victory which sees the Peacocks return to the summit of the Championship.
Marcelo Bielsa’s side fell behind after just six minutes but Pablo Hernandez soon levelled the scores, with Kemar Roofe then netting the match-winning goal in the second half.
Currently facing a host of injury problems in defence, Bielsa called upon Stuart Dallas to fill in at right-back against the Latics and plenty of fans took to social media to state they were impressed by the winger’s performance filling in at an unfamiliar role.
Many supporters have been critical of Dallas in recent weeks and have since backtracked on those claims since, stating that their criticisms have been answered by the 27-year-old’s most recent display.
We have gathered some of the best reactions below.
He was outstanding ????

With a few more games under his belt at RB, and more familiarity with the position, Dallas can do a fine job there until Ayling is back. #lufc

In bielsa we trust. If he says Dallas can do a job at rb I put my full faith in him. People on Twitter talking like they know best, it’s a joke.

I haven’t always been his biggest fan but considering he isnt a right back he’s certainly put in a top performance and long may it continue. Well done
