Five things we learned about Leeds from their 1-1 draw with Wednesday

Taking a closer look at Leeds United's latest Championship match.

Leeds United made it four straight Championship draws when they were held 1-1 at home by Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday.

Uwe Rosler’s side went behind before summer signing Chris Wood equalised and that was how the match remained, so what did we learn from Leeds’ latest encounter:

Taylor is simply brilliant

Charlie Taylor was the standout player for Leeds this weekend, the left-back proving emphatically that he is one to watch in the years ahead.

Lewis Cook and Alex Mowatt may have generated most of the plaudits thus far but Taylor has everything in his locker to go just as far in the game.

He looked brilliant against Wednesday and if Leeds can keep him fit all season he will be a contender for their Player of the Season.

Bamba’s return was vital

Sol Bamba’s permanent signing was always an integral part of Leeds’ summer transfer plans and the Ivorian showed just why with a commanding performance against the Owls.

He may not have been able to do anything about Marco Matias’s wonder-strike but in the second half in particular he was a beast at the back.

Antenucci and Wood are looking good together

Mirco Antenucci and Chris Wood look like they are developing a very effective and exciting partnership up front and the latter will be pleased with his goal.

After the Italian scored and assisted in the 2-2 draw against Bristol City it was the New Zealand international who found the net for the second time in a week.

Dallas is just what the club needed

Stuart Dallas supplied the ball for Wood to score just after the hour-mark and the former Brentford winger continued to show why he has been brought in this summer.

A wonderful addition and proof if it was needed of what Leeds lacked out wide before his arrival.

This squad is still too small

Saying all that, Leeds’ squad is still very small and injuries and suspensions could well take their toll as the campaign goes on.

If manager Uwe Rosler gets lucky that will not be a problem, but if he does not, it could well be about how well he works the loan market.
