Leeds Missed A Creative Spark In Midfield

Last updated : 07 December 2015 By .

They had plenty of possession but no cutting edge and constant long balls from centre-back Liam Cooper highlighted a definite lack of creativity in midfield.

Despite a good performance against Bristol City in midweek, Kalvin Phillips looked nervy in possession and a very early booking did little to calm him down.

Tom Adeyemi shielded Leeds’ defence well (ableit against a lacklustre Wednesday strike force) but only enlarged the gap between defence and attack.

The introduction of Luke Murphy and Alex Mowatt on the hour mark changed the game, with the latter instrumental in the build-up to the equaliser.

Leeds’ passing improved drastically after the substitutions as they pushed for a winner, and both players will be pushing for a place in the starting line-up in Leeds’ next game against Derby County.
