2 key passes, 2 dribbles won: Leeds United’s Steve Morison encouraging v Wolverhampton Wanderers in Championship

Leeds United

Steve Morison gave a good account of himself for Leeds United in the 2-1 home defeat to Wolverhampton Wanderers in the Championship on Saturday.

Steve Morison joined Leeds United from Norwich City back in the 2013 January transfer window, and it’s safe to say that he has been far from successful so far at Elland Road.

Last season the 31-year-old played on loan for Championship outfit Millwall and was drafted into the Whites’ first team for the 2014-15 campaign.

Injuries hampered Morison from making an appearance for the West Yorkshire club until last month, and on Saturday he started the Championship clash against Wolverhampton Wanderers at Elland Road.

Morison was supposedly replacing the suspended Souleymane Doukara against Wolves, and he gave a good account of himself despite not scoring in the contest.

It was the Wales international striker who set up Mirco Antenucci for the opening goal of the match in the 18th minute. The former Millwall star created another good chance for Alex Mowatt just minutes later and himself tried his luck on three occasions, as shown in the stats below.

Overall, Morison had a good game on a personal level and was especially good in the first half. The Welshman could not prevent Leeds from suffering a 2-1 defeat to Wolves, but he will be encouraged with his performance.
