MATCH FO­CUS

Yorkshire Post - Sports Monday - - FOOTBALL -

Good day: Barry Dou­glas

Slot­ted back in as if he had never been away. His vi­sion and pin­point pass­ing bring so much to Leeds’s play and un­der­lined what the team had been miss­ing dur­ing the left back’s four game lay-off with a ham­string in­jury.

Bad day: Chris­tian Wal­ton

The on-loan Brighton goal­keeper made a cou­ple of good saves in the first half but his af­ter­noon will for­ever be re­mem­bered for the blun­der that gifted Leeds their win­ning goal.

Key mo­ment: 46th minute

Ke­mar Roofe will not score an eas­ier goal all sea­son than the one that ul­ti­mately set­tled this clash, Wal­ton’s er­ror gift­ing him a chance he sim­ply could not miss.

Ref watch: Andy Davies

Did well to keep the lid on a clash that threat­ened to boil over at times. Even­tu­ally showed four yel­low cards and none of those booked could com­plain.

Ver­dict

United came from be­hind to win for the first time since Boxing Day. Wi­gan had al­ready claimed three York­shire scalps but there was lit­tle chance of Leeds join­ing that list once Her­nan­dez had equalised.
