Video: Watch Alex Mowatt's superb free kick against Millwall

Leeds United secured another win over the weekend with a narrow win against Millwall.

Leeds United made it four wins from their last five games thanks to a goal from young midfielder Alex Mowatt.

Leeds’ superb run of recent results has allowed the side to move up to 12th in the table, with Neil Redfearn showing the perfect balance with his team selection between young talent and experienced stars in key areas.

Mowatt deserves credit because he’s snapped up his chances since he came back into the team.

He’s playing slightly off to the left hand side, but he’s showing what he’s capable of when he drifts into key positions centrally.

Against Millwall, he also showed what he’s capable of in terms of set pieces, with a beautifully placed free kick in the first-half, which turned out to be the difference between the sides.

The scenes which followed his goal show how passionately he feels about the side and the current team spirit running through the team, which Redfearn needs to use to the club’s advantage.

Focus now moves to the difficult prospect of facing Middlesbrough this weekend, who are joint top of the table and looking good for promotion.

Watch the goal from around 17 seconds.
