LUFC -Leeds lose lunchtime derby match

Leeds entertained Huddersfield in the lunch time West Yorkshire derby.

The Whites left leading goalscorer Jermaine Beckford on the bench and stuck with Andy Robinson and Robert Snodgrass helping out Becchio in attack.

Leeds got off to a fantastic start and Snodgrass had the home side in front within three minutes of the kick off.

Huddersfield were denied a penalty soon after when a free kick was awarded on the edge of the box when it looked inside.

Andy Robinson had the ball in the net again for Leeds but the effort was ruled out for offside.

Snodgrass was having a fantastic game for Leeds and he came close to making it two just before half time but his effort went just over the bar.

Huddersfield had the best possible start to the second half when after only 35 seconds of the re start, Leeds failed to clear their lines and Joe Skarz hammered in an equaliser for the Terriers.

Leeds tried to hit back almost straight away and Ben Parker had a shot cleared off the line.

Keigan Parker then had a great chance for Huddersfield but after rounding Ankergren in the Leeds goal his shot failed to find the target.

Jermaine Beckford was brought on for Leeds just after the hour mark to give Leeds an extra cutting edge up front and a very adventurous formation for the last thirty minutes.

Beckford almost gave Leeds the lead soon after but his effort was well saved by the Huddersfield keeper.

Almost straight after Becchio hit the bar as Leeds pressed for another goal.

McAllister made his last throw of the dice with fifteen minutes remaining throwing on Prutton and Howson.

Huddersfield missed a great chance when Roberts hit his cross straight at Ankergren when the visitors had men over.

Beckford was then claiming a penalty but Mark Halsey waved away the Leeds appeals.

Leeds were piling on the pressure and Richardson and Robinson both had good efforts with Huddersfield sitting back and trying to deal with the Leeds pressure.

Huddersfield stole the game deep into injury time when Michael Collins got on the end of some fantastic work from former united player Danny Cadamarteri.

As usual a team that have recently sacked their manager suddenly find form.

Leeds need to quickly regroup and get ready for their FA Cup replay at Northampton on Monday.
