Three Leeds United stars who proved a big point against Huddersfield

Leeds didn't dominate possession during Saturday's Yorkshire derby - but it mattered little as they came away with a 3-0 win.

Alex Mowatt

Under Uwe Rosler's reign, Alex Mowatt just didn't look like the same player. It might not all have been the German's fault, of course, as the Leeds United midfielder could simply have suffered with form, fitness and confidence.

Steve Evans has clearly made a big impact on him, however, and, while the 20-year-old can work on the defensive side of his game, he excelled going forward against Huddersfield on Saturday.

Needless to say, his second long-range screamer in two games wasn't too bad, either...

Marco Silvestri

The Leeds goalkeeper is often hounded for poor performances, crucial errors and a failure to command his penalty area. For those things, Marco Silvestri certainly deserves criticism, while he needs to start performing consistently.

But, even if Silvestri has a nightmare when Leeds face Rotherham after the international break, he was superb against Huddersfield. The hosts dominated possession and crafted several chances. The Italian, however, stood firm and didn't give them a sniff in front of his goal.

Stuart Dallas

Someone who did well under Rosler, especially to start with, Leeds fans have questioned Stuart Dallas a little of late.

There has also been a bit of switching positions for the 24-year-old as Evans looked to get him fully firing. Against Huddersfield, it's safe to say Dallas fired.

And, even if all the winger had done was deliver the fabulous cross for Mirco Antenucci's opener, it would have been good enough. That said, Dallas did well throughout on Saturday.
