LUFC - Player ratiings v Cheltenham Town
Vital Leeds member Tiny T gives us his player ratings for Leeds 2-0 victory over Cheltenham Town.
Stunning one on one save kept the score level at half time, occasional flap at the ball in the air, has improved his distribution.
Shouldn't have started if not fully fit.
Solid and steady.
As with Naylor but both had little opposition.
Good in defence and in attack good first half strike brought fine save from Keeper.
Tricky, still lacking in quality delivery into the box on a regular basis, corners though were good.
Probed and tackled his heart out, but lacks a spark perhaps a rest a la Becchio.
Howson 7 Starman
Two good goals, and tireless around the park, his name should be in the starting line up.
Played at right back for much of the game and unlike when Hughes plays there looked comfortable, his best game for me for a while.
On another day would have had at least two before half time, needs Beckford alongside him as he won nearly everything in the air but nobody had the brains or speed to get there.
Worked hard but final ball and decision making poor, Lorimer had him Man of the match, don`t know how?
Grella/Trundle not on long enough.
For me to say he had a reasonable game is a lot, but had the chances to strike but didn't.
A game we should have won by a country mile, could have been four at half time easily, Casper kept us in it as did the linesman`s flag.
Teams like this need to be finished off, poor finishing and some good Keeping kept the score down.
Another win and a tough game next weekend.
