Following the September international break, real football returned for Leeds United as the Championship fixture list gave us a trip to The Den to face Millwall on Saturday afternoon.

Manager Marcelo Bielsa’s unbeaten start to life in the second tier continued as on-loan Manchester City youngster Jack Harrison scored in the final minute of regulation time to draw us level as we trailed to a second-half goal from the hosts.

Having gone behind in the 55th minute to Jed Wallace’s opener, a point was the least we deserved from the game as opportunities did come our way in the opening 45, we just couldn’t make the breakthrough.

With plenty of on-pitch talking points following the match, Bielsa’s confrontation with the Millwall bench towards the end of the game will keep the papers busy on Sunday as he reacted to some time wasting as they tried to see the 90 minutes out, but having been forced into changes following the double injury blows to Patrick Bamford and Kemar Roofe in particular ahead of the game, I think he’d be largely pleased with the performances of those who came in, but there is room for further improvement obviously.
