LUFC Nunez strike maintains unbeaten run

LUFC Nunez strike maintains unbeaten run

Leeds maintained their unbeaten run in pre season with a draw in Norway against Sandefjord.

The game finished 1-1 after both sides scored inside the final five minutes.

Sandefjord took the lead only for Nunez to equalise with a long-range effort.

Simon Grayson named just a seventeen-man squad with trialist Alexandre Mendy again in the starting line up.

There was no place in the squad for fellow trialist Boldiszar Bodor who played at Sheffield Wednesday who was supposed to be making the trip.

Ross McCormack had Leeds first effort on goal but his shot went wide of the post.

McCormack should have opened the scoring after he was fouled inside the box.

The striker stepped up and fired his penalty kick wide of the post, his second miss from the spot in pre season.

Mendy had the final chance of the first half but headed over.

Ramon Nunez was the first substitution of the evening replacing Michael Brown ten minutes into the second half.

Nunez quickly made an impact seeing a shot go just wide of the post.

Adam Clayton had a decent effort tipped over the bar as Leeds controlled the game.

Tom Lees had a great chance from a corner when he sent a header over the bar when free inside the area.

Max Gradel replaced Ross McCormack inside the final five minutes and he was quickly involved, firing a shot over the crossbar.

The home side scored in the final minutes of the game when Stokke fired in from close range.

Leeds still had time to find an equaliser when Nunez fired home from distance with the assistance of a deflection.

It was to prove the final meaningful action of the game as Leeds maintained their unbeaten pre season.

Leeds now prepare for their final pre season game of the summer when they entertain Newcastle on Sunday.
