Leeds fans react on Twitter to Rudy Austin's performance against Huddersfield

Rudy Austin scored one and set up another in Leeds United's 3-0 victory over Huddersfield on Saturday, so what did the fans make of his overall performance?

Leeds United continued their impressive climb up the Championship table with a 3-0 victory over Huddersfield on Saturday.

Caretaker manager Neil Redfearn saw his side follow up their impressive victory over Bournemouth with another three-goal haul, courtesy of strikes from Rodolph Austin, Mirco Antenucci and Souleymane Doukara; and it was the Jamaican midfielder who really shone for the Whites.

Austin netted from his only goal-scoring attempt, while providing the assist for Doukara to end the game as a contest with just over 20 minutes to go.

The 29-year-old also played two key passes and touched the ball 45 times during his 89 minutes on the pitch.

Alongside that impressive attacking performance he won two tackles, five duels and had a passing accuracy of 90%.  In short, he shone and was the catalyst for Leeds' latest victory.  

With reports of a new managerial appointment being imminent, Redfearn could soon be replaced in the Elland Road hot seat, but whatever happens he has done a fine job since stepping into the breach and the players have clearly reacted brilliantly to his methods, not least Austin.
