Leeds United legend Ian Harte not impressed with first-half Brentford performance at Elland Road

Elland Road East Stand

The former left-back was not happy with the performance of Leeds at Elland Road yesterday, in particular the first-half.

Leeds United have had a fairly solid start to the new season and remain unbeaten in the league after a 1-1 draw with Brentford at Elland Road.

The Whites equalised through a Mirco Antenucci strike in the second half, after Marco Djuricin had given Brentford a deserved first-half lead.

The Bees were the better team in the first-half as Leeds struggled to get a grip on the game and shake off their international break cobwebs.

One person who was not impressed with the first 45 minutes was former Leeds man Ian Harte. The Irishman recently retired from professional football, bringing to an end a career that saw him play 288 times for Leeds in a nine-year spell that included a Champions League semi-final.

He was enjoying his retirement by soaking up a Leeds game with his son Jenson and was not impressed with Leeds’ start to the game. However, he was impressed with the second half performance from the team:

Leeds were the better team in the second half and for a while it looked like they might even snatch a win from the game, but is yet another draw for Uwe Rosler’s men – their fifth of the season.

Turning those results into wins will be the key to any promotion tilt from Leeds this season.
