Good Morning. It's Monday 25th November, and here are the latest Leeds Utd headlines...
Leeds leave it late
Lady luck shone on the Whites (for once) as an injury time own goal helped catapult them back to the automatic Promotion places. It was no more than Leeds deserved having dominated three quarters of the possession, and recording 21 shots, half of which were on target; largely down to heroics from Hatters stop stopper James Shea.
Leeds opened the scoring on the break. Former Leeds loanee Izzy Brown looked like he was taken out by Phillips, but the referee waved play on. The ball was fed to Bamford at the left hand side of the penalty area, and the number 9 fired it past Shea from an acute angle. Izzy Brown was instrumental in Luton's equaliser as he delivered an inch perfect cross to Collins at the far post, for the Republic of Ireland International to head across goal.
Leeds continued to press and were rewarded in injury time when Harrison latched on to a through ball from the far right hand side, and sent a low cross in Bamfords direction who was waiting at the near side of the goal. The pressure from our leading scorer caused West Yorkshire born and bred Matt Pearson to glance the ball into his own net at the dismay of 10,000 Luton fans.
Leeds completed the most passes in the Championship last weekend (540) and were second with the amount of tackles (23). The Whites also led the rest of the Championship with shots on target, possession and passing accuracy.
What could Leeds do with Izzy Browns creativity
Who was impressed by Izzy Brown? Excluding setting up the equaliser, the 22yo, alongside Cormick dominated proceedings for the Hatters. Only poor finishing from Luton denied the Chelsea loanee from collecting two or three assists. Given the chance, who would have Izzy Brown in our squad?
