LUFC Austin - It was a good team performance

Leeds United captain Rodolph Austin felt it was a good team performance after the side hammered Birmingham City at Elland Road.

Austin produced a man of the match performance on his return from international duty as Leeds put Birmingham to the sword, with Austin also getting on the score sheet with Leeds second goal.

Austin told Sky Sports "It was our best performance. It was a very good display by the team and we are thankful for the win..

"We needed a win badly and you could see the boys were hungry and we produced a good performance."

Austin led by example as captain of Leeds, something he considers an honour and privilege. The Jamaican international, who netted for his country in midweek, was certainly not suffering from jetlag as he battled, chased and harried in the Leeds midfield.

"I am honoured to captain Leeds United and it is always a pleasure to represent the club and today we produced a very good team performance," continued Austin.

The win was crucial for Leeds, after the disappointment of five defeats in seven games prior to this had seen them slip to fifteenth in the championship.

The win never looked in danger as Leeds ran the game from the first whistle. Ross McCormack was a constant threat and he could have scored twice before he opened the scoring on 18 minutes.

Austin headed home a second from close range and Matt Smith marked his first start for Leeds in the championship with two goals to lift Leeds to ninth in the championship.

Leeds must now build on this result, starting with the West Yorkshire derby at Huddersfield Town next Saturday.
