With Christmas joviality behind us, Leeds United were looking to kick on even further in this years Championship campaign and hopefully boot West Bromwich Albion out of top spot as we tick into 2020 and that would begin with another three points from Boxing Day’s Elland Road clash with Preston North End.

With the Baggies dropping two points it was the perfect opportunity to close the gap but despite chances coming our way, we failed to get a single shot on target in the opening 45 minutes and unfortunately for us, the visitors had taken the lead 22 minutes in.

We stepped up our control of the game in the second period and huffed and puffed and finally got our reward as Stuart Dallas grabbed the equaliser in the 89th minute of the tie.

A point is better than nothing at all, but it was another wasted opportunity.
