SUPER SILVESTRI STEALS THE WIN
BORO passed up the chance to open up a healthy lead at the top of the table – but it wasn’t for the want of trying.
Aitor Karanka’s side carved out a host of good opportunities, but were denied by a combination of some less-than-clinical finishing and an inspired performance from Leeds goalkeeper Marco Silvestri.
They host Bolton at the Riverside on Tuesday and cannot afford to be as profligate again if they want to try to pull away from their promotion rivals.
Leeds have won five of their last six matches now, and while they’re still a long way away from the play-off places, it’s not inconceivable that they could yet be a factor.
At the very least, they can have a stress-free finish to the season.
