LUFC Leeds Fans View v Ipswich Town

LUFC Leeds Fans View v Ipswich Town

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

This time he gives his marks to the players after the 2-0 win over Ipswich Town.


Kenny 6
Some good saves at crucial times; his distribution is his weak point though.

Byram 7 Star man
Defended well and one timely tackle in the second half. He got forward well and he is the find of the season and he is one of ours.

Lees 7
Again, accomplished defending and he is fast becoming irreplaceable at the heart of defence.

Tate 6
Much better performance and he helped keep the clean sheet. He battled hard on the left with Peltier having another poor game.

Peltier 3
Struggled most of the afternoon, seems to switch off for periods.

Green 7
Another strong game. A great finish for the second goal and the understanding with Byram is good to watch.

Norris 7
Got stuck in and he seemed to pop up everywhere when needed.

Tonge 4
Occasional good moment, but he goes missing, never where he is needed and his tackling was poor today.

Thomas 6
A cheeky flick for the opener and he set up the second. He had to help out more defensively than he should.

Diouf 7
A good first half when he was really involved but weaker in the second. HE slipped quite a bit - he needs longer studs.

Becchio 6
How did he miss? Hard working as usual.

Subs
Brown 5

He kept a hold in the middle.

McCormack 5
Useful touches, I would have given him a little longer though.

Varney
Brought on to wind down the clock

Summary
We had the better of the first half; they had the better of the opening 25 minutes in the second. Worryingly they opened us with quick balls in behind down the left.

Thomas provided the first half lead, diverting the ball past the keeper after Lees headed towards goal. The second was a quick break feeding Thomas who turned inside to knock the ball across to Green who steered the ball home, his third in five games.

Solid defending and some good saves by Kenny ensured the clean sheet.

Byram's saving tackle in the second half after the Ipswich player was clean through but dallied shows the confidence he is playing with. He and Green have a good understanding and support each other at the back and going forward.

A disappointing attendance but those there created a good atmosphere. No doubt the 'REAL FANS` will be there on Wednesday night.

Looking forward - with the additions of a few in the January transfer window, we could be there or thereabouts come May.

Warnock needs to ditch the idea of signing Tonge; we already have Brown on the books. We need pace in the side, as well as Rodolph Austin back.
