Leigh Bromby impressed by Giuseppe Bellusci's display for Leeds United against Cardiff City

Elland Road Revie Stand

Leeds United beat Cardiff City 1-0 on Tuesday to record their first home win of the season.

Leigh Bromby has told TV Yorkshire that he was impressed with the performance that Giuseppe Bellusci put in for Leeds United in their 1-0 win over Cardiff City.

Bellusci was a controversial selection choice for Leeds, as he has looked shaky on previous appearances in the first-team, but he was solid throughout against Cardiff.

And Bromby admits that although he is not usually a fan of the Italian defender, he thought he rose to the challenge on Tuesday night.

"He was sound tonight. I wouldn’t say I’m his biggest fan, but he’s come in, he’s stepped up to the plate and put in a good performance,” Bromby said.

“It’s the same with Scott Wootton at right-back, who I thought was defensively very solid, and I think that’s how Steve Evans has set them up tonight.”

Bromby played for Leeds for four years between 2009 and 2013, and he is now a regular in attendance at Elland Road.

So far, what he has seen from the side this season has largely been poor, with the Whites having an appalling record in front of their home fans.

However, their win against Cardiff finally gives them something to build on at Elland Road and they will hope to start climbing up the Championship table on the back of that success.

Leeds picked up their victory thanks to an Alex Mowatt screamer, and they have moved up to 17th place in the second tier standings as a result.
