Suffered relentless abuse from the home fans throughout the game but had the last laugh. Didn't have to make a save in the entire 90 minutes

Booked early on for a late challenge on Jansson but gave United a good attacking outlet down the right hand side, giving Alioski problems until he was switched

A few rocky moments as Leeds continued to press but like so many others, relaxed after United went ahead. Won some big headers late on as Leeds piled forward.
