Leeds United’s five best moments of the season so far

Elland Road Revie Stand

As Leeds United pause for international matters we take a look at some of the best moments in their campaign to date.

As we enjoy – or possibly endure – yet another international break, the time is right to reflect on Leeds United’s season so far.

Neil Redfearn’s side are currently 15th in the Championship, with 20 points from their first 17 matches.

It has been an up-and-down season for Leeds, who have seen three different managers in the dug-out and form that has shifted alarmingly quickly from poor to great and back again.

With Redfearn back in charge, this time on a permanent basis, it will be hoped that Leeds can come back after the international break and climb up the table, but until then, we take a look at their five best moments of the campaign so far.

Redfearn’s appointment

It should have come earlier, but Leeds fans can be grateful that having proved himself during his temporary spell in charge in between the tenures of Dave Hockaday and Darko Milanic, Neil Redfearn was finally given the permanent job.

Mowatt’s brace

Leeds have a number of exciting young players on their books, but perhaps the most exciting of all is 19-year-old Alex Mowatt.

The midfielder had already scored two goals this season before he had a game to remember against Charlton Athletic, scoring twice in a 2-2 draw that led to Redfearn’s first point as permanent manager.

The Bournemouth/Huddersfield double-header

During Redfearn’s first spell in charge at Elland Road, he led Leeds on a fantastic run that saw them swiftly climb up the table. Among those games was a 3-1 won against Bournemouth and a 3-0 victory over Huddersfield.

A free-flowing and free-scoring Leeds were born, at least for a brief while!

Victory over Blackpool

And then they were back, with Redfearn returning to winning ways after replacing Milanic and overseeing a 3-1 win against Blackpool.

Goals from Liam Cooper, Souleymane Doukara and Mirko Antenucci gave Leeds the win and suggested better things are to come.

Adryan’s introduction

It took a while for on-loan Brazilian Adryan to be given a chance at Leeds, but once he was introduced he quickly became a fan favourite.

The 20-year-old attacking midfielder brings pace and creativity to this Leeds side and it will be interesting to see how he develops during the rest of the campaign.
