LUFC Leeds fans view v Peterborough

LUFC Leeds fans view v Peterborough

Tiny T gives us his usual fans view from the games at Elland Road.

This time it is after a rare home win against Peterborough United.

Lonergan 6
Stood little chance with the goal and on recent performances a slight improvement but does not instil confidence. He is not the keeper who started the season well.

Lees 6
Solid enough and got in the cross for Paynter`s second goal, He does not look comfortable at right back.

Bromby 7
Reliable at the back and he was a problem for the opposition at set pieces.

O'Dea 6
He won most headers at the back, although he was troubled by pace at times.

Taylor 3
He was at fault for the goal. He needs toughening up and to improve his body strength.

Snodgrass 7
All over helping out where needed. He got forward well and involved in most things we did well.

Clayton 7
A good performance, but he likes to turn round too many times.

Pugh 6
Solid enough.

Rogers 5
Bright enough start but again injury struck. Will he play more than 10 minutes for us?

McCormack 7
Two good finishes and he stuck to the wide man`s task well. He worked hard in front of Lees.

Paynter 7 Star man
Comes in from out of the wilderness and gets his first goals at home. A hard working game.

Subs
Webber 4

He was largely ineffectual. Another at fault for the goal. Why did he go back towards goal?

Robinson 6
He was solid with a crunching tackle.

Becchio
Not on long enough

Summary
A rare win for Warnock at home, though this was a poor Peterborough side and it is easy to see why they conceded so many goals.

With the exception of the goal, we were on top for most of the game and could have been three up after 20 minutes, though bad finishing and the wrong decision saw we weren't.

Good finishing later in the game and woeful keeping got us level and in then in front.

Rogers again unlucky with injury but looked lively for his 10 minutes and he was wanting the ball.

The sub of Taylor was harsh though not unexpected. He will learn from this. He was at fault for the goal and struggled but was offered no protection from Webber who should have been helping him out but too often was out of position.

I did not like to see Clayton having a go at Taylor before half time. Yes he was having a bad game but so has Clayton on numerous occasions and nobody has had a go at him. (Maybe they should have done).

Graveyard humour was amusing. We are winning 3-1 and the Kop signing ' what the F**k is going on.`

Looking forward, three welcome points now let us go to Blackpool and get another three points.
