Video: Leeds United youngster Lewis Cook scores an absolute screamer from 40-yards v Fulham

Lewis Cook

The midfield wizard is not known for shooting, but perhaps he should hit the ball from range more often.

Leeds United are taking on Fulham tonight in the Championship.

It was a game they started brightly but, as so often is the case with Leeds, they soon conceded. Tom Cairney, a former Leeds United youth player, scored the opening goal of the game to peg Leeds back.

After that it suddenly became all Fulham again and Elland Road began to get restless.

Until a moment of magic from one of their little geniuses.

Alex Mowatt has been known to score the odd cracker for Leeds. His midfield partner in crime however, Lewis Cook, is relatively shot-shy.

But the England youth international picked up the ball from 40 yards out and smashed an absolutely ferocious dipping shot beyond Andy Lonergan to give Leeds their equaliser.

It was his first goal at Elland Road for Leeds and just his second overall - and it was some goal to celebrate.

With virtually no back-lift he hit the ball like a rocket and Leeds fans must be wondering why he doesn't shoot more.

Here's hoping to see plenty more where that came from.
