LUFC - Leeds v Millwall player ratings

LUFC - Leeds v Millwall player ratings

Regular Vital Leeds contributor Tiny T once again gives us his player ratings, this time it`s on a good note after Leeds 2-0 victory over Millwall on Monday night.


Casper Ankergren 7
Flapped at a couple early on but solid and dependable, good save in second half.

Andy Hughes 3
Liability at right back, hurry back Fraser or get someone in.

Richard Naylor 7
Solid and organised at the back, read the game well, had to give Hughes a rollicking on more than one occasion.

Rui Marques 7
Another solid performance, back to the Rui of old.

Carl Dickinson 7
Good defensively, need another like him on the right, can we clone him?

Robert Snodgrass 6
Worked hard for the team put in overtime defensively to support the inadequate Hughes, supplied Beckford for the first goal.

Fabian Delph 6
Worked hard but first touch poor at times, put in the graft defensively and would be better if allowed to get forward.

Jonathan Douglas 6
Toiled away but is a yard short of pace; we need some height in the centre of the park.

Andy Robinson 7 Star man
Must of the good came from Robbo, got forward well and supported Dickinson when required.

Lee Trundle 5
Ineffective for long periods, especially with the ball in the air, needed to hold the ball rather than the cute flicks, nearly lobbed the Keeper.

Jermaine Beckford 6
Two goals, first a stunner just when it was needed, got involved with the Keeper and may have to face the FA.

Substitutes:

Luciano Becchio 6
Should have been introduced earlier, set up Beckford for his second goal with a neat header. Earlier set Beckford up with a cute back header which Beckford should have hit the mark with.

Jonathan Howson 5
Brought on to wind the clock down.

Bradley Johnson 6
Came on and quickly got involved, would like to see him down the middle when Douglas is suspended.

Manager - Simon Grayson
Larry should have introduced Becchio earlier to put pressure on the defence and to win the ball in the air.

Overview:
From where I was stood their effort in the first half was over the line, but the Referee for the only time tonight gave in our favour.

The plus is we closed the gap, and kept a clean sheet, forward to Terrier land and the early KO on Saturday, another must win game.

Thanks Tiny T once again for your honest views.
