Neil Redfearn reacts to Leeds United’s win against Ipswich Town

Leeds United edged past Ipswich Town 2-1 at Elland Road in the Championship.

Leeds United manager Neil Redfearn has been reflecting on his side’s victory over Ipswich Town on the club’s official Twitter page.

The Whites returned to winning ways in the Championship earlier this evening when they got the better of the Tractor Boys 2-1 at Elland Road.

Alex Mowatt put Leeds in the lead in the 71st minute with a sensational free kick, but Ipswich did not lose heart and restored parity just minutes later through Freddie Sears, who turned in Kevin Bru’s pass from the left side of the home team’s penalty box.

Leeds, though, made it 2-1 soon after, with Billy Sharp finding the target from close range after meeting Lewis Cook’s cross.

Ipswich could have pulled level seven minutes from the full-time whistle had Marco Silvestri not saved Daryl Murphy’s spot kick.

Redfearn was pleased with Leeds’s performance and the final result, and highlighted the difference between them and Ipswich.

"It was a battle, they're a good side but we had the better passages of play,” Redfern told Leeds’s official Twitter account.

Redfearn also hailed Sharp’s effort against Ipswich and explained why he substituted the striker.

Leeds are now 15th in the Championship table with 44 points from 35 matches.
