Leeds United 2-1 Wolves: Noel Whelan's instant reaction

Leeds United 2

Leeds United made it three wins in a row by beating Wolves.

Leeds United won their third match in a row, beating Wolves 2-1 at Elland Road with goals from Sol Bamba and Toumani Diagouraga.

Former Whites striker Noel Whelan was co-commentating for BBC Radio Leeds, and gave his thoughts to the station after the game, particularly impressed with Sol Bamba's goal.

He said: "I don't think Sol Bamba will ever score a better goal than that.

"It was as sweet as you like and there was nothing the goalkeeper could have done about that. It's a goal Bamba will remember for a long long time."

Discussing a late save made by goalkeeper Marco Silvestri to secure a draw, he added: "2-2 would not have been fair."

He added: "If we started the season like this, just think what could have been."

The first half lacked intensity and seemed very much like just what it was, an end of the season match between two teams with nothing to play for, even with striker Lee Erwin making a rare start.

It sparked into life with Sol Bamba's excellent strike midway through the second half, firing into the top corner from 20 yards out after good pressure from the home side.

Toumani Diagouraga doubled the lead minutes later, netting his second goal in as many games, after netting against Reading at the weekend, before Wolves pulled one back through George Saville.

Leeds have now won three games in a row, bouncing back from three straight earlier defeats, and head coach Steve Evans continues to give himself a fighting chance of remaining manager next season.

It was the second time Leeds have beaten Wolves this season, winning away from home 3-2 earlier in the season with Sam Byram scoring twice. This time, they have proved they can do it without him.
