Following the end of the November international break, Leeds United manager Marcelo Bielsa was looking for another three points as we made the trip to Kenilworth Road to face Luton Town earlier today.
And take the three points we did, but it was a difficult afternoon despite us having our now usual greater possession and far greater chances. After a scoreless opening 45 minutes, Patrick Bamford gave us the advantage six minutes after the restart but the hosts quickly levelled themselves.
With us still putting the pressure on, a late own goal in the 90th minute of the game sent the win and the points our way and although it was nothing less than we deserved, there will be those who feel we stole that at the death.
Speaking to the BBC following the full time whistle, our Argentine gaffer said of our efforts on the day.
“We had 15 chances to score, I don’t link the possible foul with the possibility of scoring, you can interpret it like that, but the possible foul was 80 metres away from the opponents goal. In those 80 metres, happened a lot of things that aren’t linked with the beginning of the action and the development and the finish of the chance, but I can understand the opponent and maybe the supporters can link both situations. I think the result was fair, it was a good performance from the team. In the first half, it was a little bit easier for us, but in the second half we had to fight a little bit more. It’s very difficult to win if you don’t fight you don’t have a good condition to play, and if you want to win, you have to fight, if not you cannot.”
