Leeds United manager Neil Redfearn has been singing the praises of Alex Mowatt.
The 19-year-old midfielder was arguably the best player for the West Yorkshire outfit in the 3-1 defeat to Cardiff City away from home in the Championship on Saturday.
And Redfearn, who was appointed Leeds’s full-time manager only last week, has said as much.
Redfearn says Mowatt was the "best player on the pitch" v Cardiff: "He took his goal really well. He showed awareness & was combative" #lufc— Leeds United FC (@LUFC) November 3, 2014
Mowatt indeed had a good game at the Cardiff City Stadium despite ending up on the losing side, as the following stats show.

Mowatt has been a key player for Leeds so far this season, and under Redfearn he is only going to grow in stature.
The 19-year-old is one of the best youngsters in the Leeds squad and will once again be crucial on Tuesday.
Leeds are severely out of form and will need to pick up all three points from the Championship clash against Charlton Athletic at Elland Road.
Mowatt is likely to start the encounter, and Redfearn would want him to play his best game in front of the home supporters.
