LUFC Redfearn - It was a professional performance

LUFC Redfearn - It was a professional performance

Caretaker manager Neil Redfearn felt it was a professional performance as Leeds United started life without Simon Grayson with a 3-0 win at Bristol City.

Bristol had the upper hand for the first thirty minutes with Leeds goalkeeper Andy Lonergan making one great save to keep the scores level.

The game changed on its head in the space of a couple of minutes just before half time. Robert Snodgrass gave Leeds the lead with their first real effort on goal and moments later, last man James Wilson was sent off for the home side after pulling back Ross McCormack.

Redfearn admitted the first thirty minutes were tough but the resilience by the Leeds side paid dividends in the end.

Speaking on Yorkshire Radio, Redfearn said, "I thought it was a tough game. For thirty minutes, I thought Bristol were the better side if I am being honest.

"In that half hour, I thought we were resilient, worked hard, worked hard on our shape, we looked after one another, we watched on another`s backs, covering up and down the pitch and if you look at Bristol City they are one of the form sides in the division.

"It was always going to be a difficult game and the conditions made it worse. Bristol made a great start but after we got the goal I thought there was only ever going to be one winner. It ended up a really professional performance."


Bristol were reduced to nine men early in the second half when Yannick Bolasie was dismissed for two yellow cards in the space of two minutes and from then on Leeds were in total control of the game.

McCormack saw three efforts ruled out for offside before he eventually made it 2-0 with just over ten minutes remaining and Luciano Becchio added a third to wrap things up for Leeds.
