Leeds United took on Wigan Athletic last night at Elland Road. Unfortunately, the result did not end up going their way. Leeds could only manage a 1-1 draw after Shaun MacDonald equalised late on in the Championship clash.

Meanwhile, a Leeds United player currently on loan at another Lactics side was hitting the back of the net.

Leeds sent Lee Erwin out on loan to Oldham Athletic this summer in order to play regular first-team football, stay in shape and hopefully impress the staff at Elland Road.

It has been a slog at Boundary Park for the player so far but he has been finding the net.

Last night’s goal was trademark Erwin, cutting in from the left to curl the ball into the far post with his stronger right foot.

The goal helped Oldham pick up an impressive win against League One’s early pace setters Scunthorpe United and Erwin’s goal was his third in 17 appearances for the club this season.

He has however hardly been prolific and for all his hard work still looks a limited player.

The Championship may be a level above Erwin and despite the pleasure from both Leeds and Oldham fans with his performance last night, a long-term future at Elland Road still looks in doubt…
