Abbreviated Match Report: Leeds 0 v 1 Swans

Leeds 0 v Swans 1 Abbreviated Match Report

The Swans are top of the pile as Old Man Routs climbed off the bench to plunder a last minute winner at Elland Road.

The hosts had the majority of the possession and significantly more efforts on goal (although most were off target) but Cooper’s Troopers soaked up the pressure and took their chance when it came.

The first half finished goalless with Leeds applying the majority of the pressure but finding their opponents made of stern stuff. It all left Bielsa uncomfortable on his bucket whilst Super Cooper looked even more at home on a Championship touchline.

The second period followed a similar pattern with Dirty Leeds racking up the attempts and the free kicks as their right intensity pressing game all too often pressed cynically and illegally.

Both sides took off their top scorers on the hour, Bamford and Borja leaving the action behind without adding to their tallies.

Super Cooper has a magical touch with substitutions and his decision to bring on Wayne Routledge for Dhanda was another inspired gambit, Old Man Routs cooly slotting the only goal of the game in the 90th minute.

Cooper remains unbeaten, another away win sealing top spot going into the international break. Bielsa will probably kick the bucket after chewing out his spy network for their lack of intelligence on Old Man Routs.

It could have been oh so different if Dan James had started, eh‽ Snigger….
