Another clean sheet pleases Tel

United have now won five and drawn one of their last six matches, keeping three clean sheets in succession.

Venables praised returning skipper Dominic Matteo, who came back for the game after a three-month injury lay-off: "It was a major plus to get Dominic back," said the Leeds boss.

"He did well, giving us good drive down the left-hand side, especially in the second half.

"That's also three clean sheets for us now, which is good. Everybody likes that, and it's come as a result of us being more compact and more patient.

"Hopefully we can keep going in the same direction."
