LUFC Fans view v Doncaster Rovers

LUFC Fans view v Doncaster Rovers

King Billy was in the hot seat on Friday night and gives us his player ratings in the win over Doncaster Rovers.


Lonergan 6
For the first time this season he had little to do. Made one mistake from a cross and ended up dislocating his finger. He must be a doubt for Tuesday night.

Connolly 7
It is hard to score players when they had little to do. He controlled his side of defence so deserves a decent mark.

Lees 8
He looked a good full back. He looks an excellent centre back. I don`t think it`s a coincidence that Leeds have looked more solid and kept two clean sheets since he moved to centre back. Also great that he chipped in at the other end with a goal.

O`Dea 7
He is another player who suddenly looks a whole lot better. Troubled very little and he was in a tough battle with Jon Parkin.

White 7
He looks an assured left back. Defending well and also bombs forward to help out in attack.

Snodgrass 7
Two quality balls into the middle for the goals and worked hard all evening. Not one of his nights for going past players but he worked hard for the team.

Howson 7
I thought in the first half he controlled the midfield. In the second half I didn`t see as much of him.

Clayton 7
Probably his most quiet game for Leeds this season. He didn`t play badly it`s just he`s been so good in the other games. I did think he was very quiet in the first half.

Pugh 7
Another goal for Pugh and he`s certainly added something on the left hand side, both going forward and defensively.

McCormack 8
Another tireless display from McCormack. Him and Keogh are a fantastic partnership. What a great goal from a player on top form.

Keogh 8 Star Man
Keogh and McCormack lead from the front and their hard work in attack helps out the rest of the side. He seemed to pop up everywhere in the game. So unlucky to not score the goal he deserved.

Subs
Becchio 5

There is no way he is going to get back in the side at the moment with the form of McCormack and Keogh which is great for Leeds. His usual hard working bustling displays in attack are actually being overshadowed by Keogh at the moment which tells you everything.

Rachubka 5
Only had a staright forward save to make at the very end. I think we will see him playing on Tuesday. Can he take his chance?

Vayrynen 5
Not on long enough to make much impression. I think when he gets the chance he is going to be very good for Leeds.

Summary
A great win on what everyone was thinking would be a tricky game before hand. The whole side is now working very hard as a unit. Hard to pick a weak link which is something we haven`t been able to say for a very long time.
Into the top six, even if it is just for 24 hours but we are definitely moving in the right direction. Let us take this performance into Tuesday.
