Kyle Lafferty sends message to Stuart Dallas on Twitter after Leeds United beat Birmingham City

Elland Road East Stand

Leeds United beat Birmingham City 2-1 at Elland Road yesterday evening.

Birmingham City forward Kyle Lafferty has congratulated Leeds United’s Stuart Dallas on being the difference between the two sides last night.

Leeds beat Birmingham 2-1 yesterday at St. Andrews, with Dallas putting in a wonderful performance.

The winger belted in two goals from outside of the penalty area, to provide his side with the three points.

And Lafferty, who is very good friends with Dallas from their time together with Northern Ireland, could only congratulate the Whites’ attacker on his display.

Dallas’ end product has been called into question at times this season, but his performance last night proved his value.

The 24-year-old first curled the ball into the bottom corner from 20 yards, before lashing in a volley on the turn to seal the victory.

Leeds’ performance in the contest was one of their best for recent weeks, and ended a run of four matches without a win.

Steve Evans’ side victory has left them in 15th place in the Championship table, while Birmingham have fallen to ninth.
