Leeds fans react on Twitter to Alex Mowatt's performance v Cardiff

The midfielder was seen as Leeds' only positive by many supporters on Saturday afternoon.

It was another game without a win for Leeds United on Saturday, meaning a natural state of disappointment for many fans after their 3-1 Championship loss at Cardiff.

And, as far as many supporters were concerned, there was only one positive from the game: the performance of young midfielder Alex Mowatt.

Of course, much of the spotlight was inevitably on Neil Redfearn, after news broke that he was finally confirmed as Leeds boss yesterday.

The 49-year-old reflected on his appointment and also his first game in full charge of the side.

"I spoke to Massimo and we talked about things going forward, which was a key point for me," Redfearn told BBC Sport after the game.

"I asked if he sees me as the future and he said he does, which is great for me.

"It was not a dazzling performance but for an hour it was a good away performance. But that period after half-time was where the damage was done."

Redfearn also admitted that he thought the Yorkshire side could get something from the game after Mowatt pulled a goal back for Leeds, only for the Bluebirds to then add a third to their tally.

There was no doubting the quality of the 19-year-old's display, however, as plenty of Leeds fans could tell you after the game on Twitter...
