“Great result, it’s taken 26 years to come.”

“I was worried about this game. Sheff Utd are a very good team with inventive tactics. Wilder gets the best out of his players.
There were chances for both sides and it was an even game. You have to feel for Henderson after that mistake.
Winning is absolutely massive for us though. I think a gap might (hopefully) be eventually opening up at the top.”

“Tactically a very interesting game. We’ve played a very possession based game for the most part this season and Sheff United turned this on us today. We didn’t see as much of the ball as we usually would but fortunately defended pretty well.
There’s a debate as to if McGoldrick should’ve been sent off, really bad tackle BUT would’ve drastically altered the dynamic of the game. Thought both teams had their chances.
Feel for Henderson, he’s been brilliant over the last few games so it’s a shame his mistake cost him. That said, not going to complain as that’s a big 3 points for Leeds when a draw was probably on the cards.”

“Bit of a smash and grab and I would have settled for a point but a good, battling performance ”

“That was a hard game.”

“We rode our luck today, a bit like back in ‘92. 6 points from the last 2 games when in the past we’d have only come away with 2. The luck is with us at the moment, but as the saying goes “luck is a dividend of sweat. The herder you work the luckier you get”

“Thought we played really well, not sure we were lucky at all, we were the better team. Okay, the goal was a gift but Clarke still had to be there closing the keeper down, and their effort against the crossbar was millimetres from a goal (would BPF have get a touch though?). Sheff U were lucky not to have two red cards in the first half and lucky that neither the ref, his assistants or their guide dogs saw all the shirt pulling in the area. Genuinely thought we were deserving of at the very least a draw.”

“This was edge of the seats stuff for me. I really did not like how their centre backs came roaring forward with the ball leaving our players behind them in their wake in the first 20 minutes or so. n the end we got the three points and this was another match where I felt we sneaked an extra 2 points. That said I am sure the Blunts will argue that they deserved something from the game and will forget that they were very fortunate to keep 11 men on the pitch by half time. McGoldrick perpetrated a horrendous tackle on Mateusz Klich right in front of the Referee which was a Red card all day long. Instead it was deemed not even a foul. Stevens, having already been booked went flying in and took out Stuart Dallas but no action was taken other than to give us a foul.”

“Think a draw would of been fair. Dont think sheff utd edged it. Ref was awful. ”

“We got lucky to win imo but they definitely didn’t deserve to!”

“excellent work boys , a truly deserved win.”

“Despite the joke of a ref, we deserved that win.Much the better side in the 2nd half and dug out a win.”

“We also stood up to plenty of dirty tactics from the blunts & as a consequence lost our captain to a bad injury. To come away with three points playing against twelve men is a magnificent achievement from Bielsa’s boys”

“Thoroughly deserved win against a team that showed their League One pedigree.”

“Wilder is a bitter, miserable old fooker isn’t he? Nice to see Leeds United have been living in his head rent free since 1992 though.”
