Leeds United finished their tour of Australia with a 2-1 win over Western Sydney Wanderers today.

Pablo Hernandez spared the Whites' blushes with a last-gasp stunner, after 17-year-old Mateusz Bogusz had opened the scoring for Marcelo Bielsa's side.

Close to 25,000 supporters packed into the stadium and many were Leeds fans - and many more had travelled from the UK, halfway around the world, to cheer on their team.

Supporters of the Elland Road club also turned up in their thousands to watch the midweek defeat by Manchester United at the Optus Stadium in Perth.

 

And former Leeds star Tony Dorigo says that the level of support has been 'truly astounding'.

And it looks like United owner Andrea Radrizzani is in full agreement with Dorigo, going by his short-but-succinct response on Twitter.

Bielsa's side kick off their Championship campaign with a trip to Bristol City in two weeks and no doubt the travelling fans of West Yorkshire team will be in fine voice again.

The Whites finished third in the league last season, losing a playoff semi-final to Derby County over two legs.
