It is a reversion to what the Whites were playing under Uwe Rosler, but with a couple of key differences.
Firstly, the wingers and central midfielders are given more of an opportunity to support Chris Wood, which means the striker no longer seems as isolated as he did under Rosler.
Secondly, the energy and drive of Tom Adeyemi is used for an attacking benefit.
He is not suited to sit, but popped up repeatedly in Charlton’s box to cause chaos.
Having him as a player able to break gives Leeds much more than they did when Luke Murphy was playing in a similar role.
