Mirco Antenucci may not have hit the net last night for Leeds United, but his passing was staggeringly accurate.

The Italian front-man completed over 94% of his passes during what was a mixed night for his side.

Although the Whites picked up a credible point against Norwich City, with a 1-1 draw, Antenucci wasn't his usual goalscoring threat and that will have been frustrating.

The former Ternana man has looked one of Leeds' better signings this summer, but he could only muster one shot during the 90 minutes last night.

He was also dispossessed five times and he will need to ensure that he is more careful with the ball at his feet in future.

Part of the reason for this can be attributed to the fact that he was fairly isolated, with Leeds looking to play on the counter, but it still meant that only Norwich City's Nathan Redmond lost the ball as much as him.

Darko Milanic will be encouraged by his accuracy of passing, though, and that is a positive for him to take from the game.

Antenucci will next be in action against Wolverhampton Wanderers, where he will be looking to show more a goalscoring threat.
