[Bamford, James, Rutter]
Cardiff City
Leeds United

Saturday 13th January 2024, 3:00pm | Championship
Cardiff City Stadium | Attendance: 25,991

Manager: Daniel Farke | Referee: Oliver Langford

Leeds recorded their third consecutive 3-0 victory of 2024, against a Cardiff City team lacking any kind of bite, spirit or credibility. Traditionally, a trip to the Welsh Capital would normally have been a tasty affair, with plenty of blood sweat and tears, but not on this occasion! Confidence was low, the home crowd were quiet, and their Manager was clueless!

Leeds found themselves two-up at the break, curtesy of taps ins from Patrick Bamford and Dan James, but it could have been far worse had it not been for their keeper. Alnwick denied both Rutter and Bamford from one on one situations, and with the help of the bar, managed to thwart James' attempted lob.

It was more of less one way traffic in the second half too, with the post this time coming to the hosts aid after Summerville missed his spot kick, after Rutter was bought down in the box.

Leeds scored a well deserved third late on after James charged through the Cardiff defence before picking out Summerville, wide on the left of the Cardiff penalty area. Unselfishly, he tee'd up Rutter, who picked out his spot from 12 yards out.
