|Leeds United||Ipswich Town|
|Roofe (22), Cooper (66)|
Leeds United welcomed Ipswich Town to Elland Road for last night’s midweek Championship encounter.
On the back of the draw against Brentford and the defeat against Blackburn Rovers, there was some concern in the fanbase given we had lost our clinical touch and elements of play were becoming sloppy. Some even overly read into manager Marcelo Bielsa’s words of frustration and guessed a departure before the New Year were on the cards.
A 2-0 victory with Kemar Roofe getting back to scoring ways as well as a skipper’s performance from Liam Cooper as he knocked in the second should settle nerves though.
Despite poorer form recently, the three points have put us back to the top of the second tier table – even if the most cautious will say Ipswich are propping up the table and should’ve been there for the taking. In football, you can only beat what’s in front of you though and these matches are the league’s version of a banana skin but we avoided it.
The match stats show it was largely similar to what we’ve seen before, but as players return from injury and start to get their sharpness back, against Ipswich we were just less wasteful.
