West Bromwich Albion
Leeds United

Friday 29th December 2023, 8:15pm | Championship
The Hawthorns | Attendance: 25,409

Manager: Daniel Farke | Referee: Graham Scott

Leeds erratic form away from home continued as West Brom became the latest side to inflict maximum damage on Daniel Farke's Whites. Grady Diangana's 37th minute strike was all that separated the two sides in the end, and although the Whites spent large periods camped out in the Baggies final third, managed just one effort on target all night.

It's easy to point fingers at individuals, but in truth Farke's men have found it difficult all season, breaking down opposition when all ten men get behind the ball. Similarly, Leeds last line of defence has proved frail to say the least, with many managing to breach it at first sight of goal.

It didn't help that the referee missed a blatant penalty, when Gnonto was bought down in the box, yet even without the rub of the green; with the players at Farke's disposal, had more than enough to put the game to bed.

The result left Leeds now fourth in the table, six points shy of Southampton, and nine points away from Ipswich Town in second place.
