We select the most eye-catching photos from Leeds United's 1-0 victory over Middlesbrough at the weekend.
Leeds United’s campaign is up and running after a 1-0 win over Middlesbrough at the weekend.
The Whites went into the fixture with concerns after an opening day defeat to Millwall, but they recovered well and showed great battling qualities to pick up the victory.
‘Boro, under the guidance of Aitor Karanka, play some of the most aesthetically pleasing football in the Championship and had the bulk of possession, but found it hard to break down a sturdy Leeds back-line.
And David Hockaday’s men were rewarded for their fine defensive performance when Billy Sharp capitalised on a goalkeeping error in the last minutes to score on his debut and give Leeds the victory.
It was a vital win for the club and one which now gives them some momentum to build upon for the remainder of the campaign.
Leeds supporters had been worried with direction the season was starting to head, but a clutch of new signings and this result has allayed those fears and there is genuine optimism that the club could spring a surprise this campaign now.
The Yorkshire side are reportedly still trying to tie up deals for a further six players as they look to strengthen even further during the transfer-window.
But, for now, the squad and the supporters can be relaxed after picking up their first-three points and here are the best photos from the weekend success.
