Howler from Hen­der­son

Sunday Express - - FOOTBALL -

Sh­eff Utd 0 Leeds 1

THE last time Leeds won at Bra­mall Lane they were crowned cham­pi­ons of the old First Di­vi­sion and had a cer­tain Eric Can­tona in their line-up.

Fast for­ward 26 years and their lat­est suc­cess, al­beit a for­tu­itous one cour­tesy of a goal­keep­ing howler from Dean Hen­der­son (right) eight min­utes from time, saw Marcelo Bielsa’s side top the ta­ble ahead of the day’s af­ter­noon kick-offs.

The on-loan Manch­ester United keeper’s poor pass fell straight to Jack Clarke who laid the ball on a plate for Pablo Her­nan­dez to slot into an empty net.

“If this game had ended in a draw it would not have been an un­fair re­sult,” said Bielsa.

And Blades boss Chris Wilder said: “It was a re­ally good game and it was al­ways go­ing to be de­cided by a bit of magic or a mis­take and, sadly for us, it was the last one.”
