It’s another quick turnaround in fixtures for Leeds United and manager Marcelo Bielsa as fresh from Saturday’s 2-0 victory over rivals Huddersfield Town, Tuesday evening saw us back in action at Elland Road as we welcomed Hull City for the midweek Championship clash.
Following goals from Ezgjan Alioski and Pablo Hernandez, we made it six wins on the spin (and unbeaten in nine) so there was every reason for confidence ahead of tonight’s clash that we would again do enough to take all three points and return ourselves to the top of the second tier table, with West Bromwich Albion not in action until Wednesday evening.
Despite dominating and having plenty of efforts on target (I’m typing that every match) it was a poor first half from Leeds and we failed to get a single effort on target. Second half that changed as we kept plugging away and after Helder Costa saw an effort ruled out, a de Wijs own goal with 17 minutes remaining gave us the advantage, and substitute Alioski made it two in two with eight remaining to secure all three points.
Advantage is ours…again…and seven wins from seven.
