10-man Huddersfield end Leeds' winning streak

2024/03/02 16:02

Promotion-chasing Leeds were held to a 1-1 draw against 10-man Huddersfield at the John Smith's Stadium.

Farke's championship contenders had a strong start, with Crysencio Summerville's early attempt thwarted by Lee Nicholls' legs. Despite significant possession for Leeds, Huddersfield managed to contain them.

In the first half's additional nine minutes, substitute Michal Helik, replacing the injured Yuta Nakayama, broke the deadlock for the hosts.

A quality free-kick from Sorba Thomas was met by Helik, who reacted swiftly to poke in his ninth goal of the season after Illan Meslier initially saved Danny Ward's header.

However, Huddersfield faced a setback shortly after as captain Jonathan Hogg, who had been booked earlier, received a red card for a deliberate elbow on Junior Firpo.

In the second half, a triple substitution injected life into the visitors. Substitutes Dan James and Connor Roberts combined down the right, leading to a sliding PatrickBamford turning home a ball across the goal in the 67th minute.

Leeds' best opportunity for a late winner occurred in the 85th minute when Summerville struck the post after shifting onto his right foot.

With this result, Leeds are five points behind leaders Leicester, who will play later in the afternoon. However, they could be leapfrogged if Ipswich beats Plymouth. 

Meanwhile, Huddersfield went three points clear of the relegation zone.

As a Leeds fan, I have to say that I am disappointed with this result. We had a strong start and dominated possession, but Huddersfield did well to contain us. That red card for Hogg definitely changed the game, but we still should have done better with our chances. Overall, a frustrating draw for us.

Raphinha, Rodrigo and Patrick Bamford all came on to try and break through the Huddersfield defence.

Leeds have been struggling to score goals lately, only managing to score one goal in their last four games. This has lead to frustration among fans, who were hoping for a convincing win against a 10-man Huddersfield team. However, credit must be given to Huddersfield for their strong defensive performance and taking advantage of their limited attacking opportunities.

Patrick Bamford, Jack Harrison and Raphinha were brought on and it was Bamford who netted the equalizer.

As a fan of Leeds, I have to say I'm disappointed with the draw but pleased to see Bamford back in form. Huddersfield put up a good fight, but with the red card, we should have been able to take the win.
