With Leeds United enjoying a busy summer transfer window, even if most deals were of an outward bound, once Thursday’s deadline was over it was all eyes to Saturday’s Elland Road based clash against Nottingham Forest.
Manager Marcelo Bielsa selected an unchanged side for the game following our opening Championship win of 2019/20 against Bristol City, and as has become usual under the Argentine gaffer, we utterly dominated possession and chances on the day – but we still weren’t as clinical as we’d have liked – waiting until the 59th minute before a nice move saw the ever reliable Pablo Hernandez sweep through the middle of their defence to open the scoring and give us the advantage.
With the game drawing to a close, Forest did scramble an equaliser from a corner and although in some ways they were fortunate, I doubt very much that our gaffer will be pleased with the way we defended it.
1-1 was how it finished with Patrick Bamford hitting the bar, and with us also not benefiting from a decent penalty shout.
Onto the next one, four from six in the opening two is decent enough for me.
