LUFC - Player ratings v Southend United

LUFC - Player ratings v Southend United

Regular Vital Leeds contributor Tiny T once again gives us his player ratings for the team against Southend United.


Ankergren 7
Little to do for long periods, stunning double save kept the clean sheet for the team.

Hughes 4
Distribution poor and cannot defend, thank god we played a team who couldn't play on the weak link.

Naylor 7
Another composed display and a goal, untroubled and well organised in defence please let`s keep him.

Marques 7
Towering header for the first goal and another composed defensive display, what a difference Naylor makes to Rui, nearly back to his best.

Dickinson 6
Composed in defence but gets a nosebleed when he ventures over the half way line.

Robinson 7
Tricky and stylish but the final ball and decision making at times are poor.

Douglas 7 Star man
Followed on from Saturday with another good display.

Delph 6
Struggled to have an impact when Southend went to a five man midfield.

Johnson 7
Two assists with good balls into the middle and got stuck in, another whose final ball was poor.

Trundle 6
The ball spent too much time in the air for him to use his silky skills, but linked well with Beckford.

Beckford 6
Should have added to his seasons tally in the second half, sloppy and unlucky with his finishing.

Substitutes:

Snodgrass 5
Did nothing much during his spell on the pitch.

Howson 6
One or two good challenges and a shot charged down, needs more time on the pitch.

Becchio
Little time to have any influence though nearly had the third with a header.

Leeds had the game won after 11 minutes and should have gone on to score more as Southend are a poor side.

Leeds lacked control with too many flicks and woeful passing, they needed to keep the ball and be more patient with the final ball and everything seemed rushed.
Important thing was that we gained the three points gaining ground on the sides above and putting further ground between us and the teams below us.

Onward to Walsall next, lets hope for three more points.

Thanks Tiny for your frank and honest assessment on the players.
