Pablo Hernandez may have stolen the headlines, but Leeds United had several players to thank for their stunning comeback.
Several Leeds fans have taken to Twitter to laud Jack Harrison’s outstanding performance during the Whites’ superb comeback against Millwall – with one supporter insisting that it was the winger’s best display for the club.
Harrison has not always had the easiest time since arriving at Elland Road on loan. He struggled to make an impact during the early weeks of the campaign, but he has definitely turned a corner in recent times.
The 22-year-old has the ability to make something special happen out of nothing. He does not get onto the ball as often as Pablo Hernandez or Tyler Roberts do, but when he does, Leeds fans often end up out of their seats.
And his latest excellent performance came on Saturday as Leeds came from 2-1 down with 20 minutes remaining against Neil Harris’ side to bag a 3-2 victory that has lifted them back into the Championship’s top two.
It was Harrison who somehow kept the ball in to allow Barry Douglas the chance to put in the sumptuous cross that Luke Ayling headed home to equalise before Hernandez went on to score the winner.
And Harrison’s improvement over the last couple of months was noted by the supporters on social media after the win. Hernandez has taken many of the plaudits, but many fans believe that the wide-man was as good as they have seen him.
Here is what some of the supporters were saying about Harrison’s display…
Pablo was man of the match (20th time this season?) but big hand for Harrison today. #lufc— The Scratching Shed (@TSSLUFC) March 30, 2019
Home after an incredible afternoon. Pablo is a magician, and seems intent on dragging us over the line. But a tip of the hat to Jack Harrison, superb today #lufc— Luke Chambers (@luke_chambers76) March 30, 2019

Pablo not at his best despite two goals but still a different class.#LUFC
how good has harrison been last few games hes improving rapidly just at the right time,like to mention roberts aswell who i think could turn into a top player for us,dougles needs to be stronger tho,seems very weak in tackles #lufc #mot— chris wilson (@willowlufc) March 30, 2019
Likewise Jack Harrison, he’s turning into a right player. There have been times I’d have bombed him out this season but he’s proving to be a crucial cog in the machine. After Alioski he has the most impressive engine. Another good performance. #lufc— Tommy (@tommy_lufc) March 30, 2019
Hernandez unreal. Makes his Team of the Year snub look more laughable. Harrison had a blinder #lufc— Nathan Vause (@NathanVause) March 30, 2019
