Leeds United began the new Championship season with a 1-1 draw against Burnley at Elland Road on Saturday lunch-time.
Mirco Antenucci came off the bench to break the stalemate before Burnley's Sam Vokes denied the home side a season-opening victory at the death.
21-year-old Sam Byram, who has come through the club's academy to become a key first-team player, was on hand to contribute regularly to his side's efforts in the final third - as the statistics suggest.

Byram had a great game at Elland Road, especially considering Burnley’s primary tactic for containing him involved a good kicking.
The youngster also proved extremely useful in the air - winning five aerial duels throughout proceedings - and he looked a threat every time he pushed forward, thanks to his pace and creativity.
Despite failing to record a single successful take on, he made good ground down the right-flank - this showed with his contribution in the final third.
Indeed, he supplied seven accurate crosses throughout his cameo, while weighing in with three key passes.
Despite a disappointing start to the Championship campaign, Leeds fans will take positives from a number of individual displays - including Sam Byram's.
The 21-year-old, who continues to impress in a more advanced wide role, will be a key attacking outlet for the Whites this term.
