LUFC Leeds United Fan View v Brighton and Hove Albion

LUFC Leeds United Fan View v Brighton and Hove Albion

Vital Leeds United contributor Tiny T gives us his view of the Leeds performance at Elland Road.
This time he gives us his view after the 2-0 win against Brighton and Hove Albion.

Green 8
Outstanding saves at the right time and he ensured we came away with all the points.

Berardi 8
Another good game from Berardi in his preferred position.

Bartley 8
A commanding performance and he gave little away.

Cooper 8 Star man
You would never have thought he had hardly played this season. Dependable at the back and he hardly put a foot wrong.

Taylor 8
A strong performance and an assist for the first goal.

Bridcutt 8
Bridcutt protected the back four well and he played further up the field.

Vieira 8
Vieira was hard working and he was further forward this game.

Sacko 7
A much better performance. He worked hard and caused problems down the right.

Hernandez 8
Hernandez was much more involved and he chased and harried. I even saw him win a header.

Pedraza 7
He was none stop whilst on the pitch and he was not afraid to put his foot in either.

Wood 8
Goal machine - He got another two goals to add to his tally. One a header and a then a well taken penalty. HE led the line well.

Subs
Doukara 7

He won us the penalty for our second goal.

Dallas 7
He ensured the points came our way.

O'Kane
O`Kane was brought on to wind down the clock.

Summary
Best full 90 minutes I've seen for a while. On the front foot from minute 1 to 93 and no one gave less than 100% all game.

A couple of outstanding saves from Green, who has signed to stay for another season. Cooper playing was a surprise but an assured performance meant Jansson was not missed at all and with Bartley, they kept Baldock and Murphy relatively quiet.

We started on the front foot and finished the same way playing controlled football throughout and we made Brighton look a very ordinary team. We need this every game from now to hopefully reach the playoff final.

A word on Cooper. I made him my Star man purely on the fact he has played less games than anyone else has but he came in and looked like he played all season.

There are those that do not like him but I've always thought he had quality.

International break now and we must hope they all come back unscathed and ready to play like today for the next 8 to 10 games.
