'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Minus 3 and Easy for Leeds United

A Tresor Kandol goal just before half-time sealed all 3 points in an entertaining match against fellow relegated side Luton Town.

The game was marred at the end by a bizarre bust up between Leeds managers old and new, as Kevin Blackwell and Dennis Wise had to be separated by various club staff and officials.

Petty management squabbles aside, Leeds United were yet again good for all 3 points as they continued to "stick two fingers up" at the Football League, and the chairmen that agreed on Leeds` 15 point deduction that handicapped the side before they had even begun.

It took just 10 minutes before Luton Town goalkeeper David Forde was tested, as Kandol had a go from long range with a low shot. Within the first half hour Luton failed to do anything of note, with David Bell coming the closest with a poor shot screwed wide.

There is somewhat of a blossoming partnership between Jermaine Beckford and Tresor Kandol, with the pair combining yet again for a goal as Beckford played the Congolese forward through on goal, with Kandol finishing nicely.

Luton Town danger man Paul Furlong had the ball in the back of the net shortly after half-time, though thankfully for Leeds fans everywhere, the referee`s assistant (read: lino) judged the former Birmingham City striker to have strayed into an offside position.

Towards the end of the game Luton pushed for an equaliser, yet struggled to break through a Leeds United defence full of confidence, and a goalkeeper in Ankergren who may just have read my preview, a clean sheet no doubt boosting his confidence.

A scuffle occurred on the touchline between the two sides coaching staff, with so many different versions of events it would be wrong to possibly comment as to what happened! Anyone who does know feel free to get in touch with Vital Leeds United via the usual channels!

Another 3 points, another chance to have a laugh at the rest of League One as Leeds United prove they are to be no pushovers this season, despite the handicap start. For those that are interested, without the completely ridiculous penalty imposed on Leeds, here is the League One top 10:

1. Leeds United 4 4 0 0 6 12
