Five things we learned about Leeds United from their 2-1 victory

Taking a closer look at Leeds United's weekend win against Sheffield Wednesday.

Leeds United finally got back to winning ways when they defeated Sheffield Wednesday 2-1 at Hillsborough at the weekend.

Neil Redfearn’s side had gone six matches without a win and were looking like ending the campaign on a downer, but goals from Charlie Taylor and Steve Morison ensured they secured a welcome three points.

Here are five things we learned from Leeds’ latest outing:

Taylor is destined for greatness

Charlie Taylor not only scored the equalising goal but he looked brilliant throughout, delivering a performance that showed both maturity and talent.

The young full-back-turned-winger has made the left-side his own and he put in arguably his best performance of the season on Saturday.

Morison has turned a corner

Steve Morison waited a very long time for his first goal of a frustrating campaign, and just a week after netting against Charlton Athletic, the 31-year-old doubled his total for the season.

Redfearn clearly has faith in the big man and the Leeds striker is now starting to repay that with goals.

It may have proved a particularly big corner to turn, but Morison has now done just that.

Cooper must improve his passing

With Giuseppe Bellusci injured Redfearn paired Sol Bamba with Liam Cooper, but the latter must improve his passing if he wants to continue in the starting XI for the long haul.

With a passing accuracy of just 38 per cent, the Leeds defender will know he has to improve, although his 22 effective clearances were a big plus point.

Adryan may have played his last game for the club

There were some interesting names on Leeds’ substitute bench on Saturday, with Aidy White returning to the match-day squad and Brian Montenegro, Casper Sloth and Kalvin Phillips also selected.

But Brazilian midfielder Adryan was nowhere to be seen and after so long out of the first-team the loanee may be wondering if his time is up.

Sharp is vital to this Leeds side

Billy Sharp may have only played 19 minutes on Saturday but it is no coincidence that within a minute of him coming on Leeds went ahead.

Sharp was vital in the build-up to Morison’s goal and his impact should not be understated.
