MATCH FO­CUS

Yorkshire Post - Sports Monday - - FOOTBALL -

Good day: Garry Monk

Again pil­lo­ried on his sec­ond re­turn to El­land Road, but the for­mer Leeds United man­ager could re­flect on his Blues side do­ing a real num­ber on the hosts.

Bad day: Bai­ley Pea­cock-Far­rell

After re­ceiv­ing bou­quets for his early-sea­son form, the 21-year-old must han­dle a few brick­bats. All part of a goal­keeper’s ed­u­ca­tion.

Key mo­ment: 29th minute

Birm­ing­ham dou­ble their lead when Che Adams’s low shot creeps into the net off the far post. The vis­i­tors showed lim­ited at­tack­ing in­tent after that.

Ref watch: Peter Bankes

Will not be wel­comed back to El­land Road in a hurry. Lost con­trol in the sec­ond half and in­curred the wrath of a sell-out home crowd.

Ver­dict

A thor­oughly frus­trat­ing af­ter­noon for Leeds, who were their own worst en­e­mies at times.

Quote of the day Our team was less con­fi­dent. It’s a high price to pay for a tac­ti­cal mis­take.
