Leeds United boss Simon Grayson was once again a delighted man after seeing his side come from behind to take all three points against Swansea City.
Speaking on the BBC Football League Show, Grayson said, "I`m delighted we`ve shown resilience and character to come from behind and win another game."
Leeds turned around a half time deficit thanks to two goals in eight second half minutes to remain in the Play off places in the early stages of the new season.
After falling behind in the opening fifteen minutes after a mistake by Richard Naylor that allowed in Stephen Dobbie, the home side hit back when firstly, Bradley Johnson blasted into the roof of the net and then after a number of near misses Luciano Becchio was on hand to tap in a second.
It`s the second home game in a row that Leeds have gone behind to hit back and claim all three points and the boss would sooner see his side not have to do it the hard way, "It`s obviously something we don`t want to be doing to often," he continued.
Leeds have now come from behind to claim seven points in three of their five games so far this season, a total not matched by anyone else in the Championship.
Goalkeeper Shane Higgs came in to deputise for the injured Kasper Schmeichel and made three great stops when the game was still at 1-0 to keep Leeds in it.
Simon Grayson can now get his side ready for a battle of the white rose with three Yorkshire derbies coming up in the space of eleven days starting with a trip to Oakwell to face Barnsley on Tuesday night.
