Ben Parker hails Leeds performance of Stuart Dallas

Ben Parker raved about Stuart Dallas after he helped Leeds United continue their winning run on Tuesday night by beating Hull City at Elland Road.

The Whites secured a 2-0 victory to make it seven consecutive league wins and continue the push for promotion.

Marcelo Bielsa’s team moved back to the top of the Championship table above West Brom, who can overtake them again when they face Wigan Athletic on Wednesday night.

But most importantly the Yorkshire side are 11 points above third-placed Fulham and look comfortable for now in the automatic spots.

Leeds finally went in front against Hull in the 73rd minute when defender Jordy de Wijs netted an own goal, while shortly after Ezgjan Alioski made sure of the three points with his second goal in as many games.

Ex-Leeds defender picked Dallas for special praise after his work at left-back, as he played a major role in keeping Hull’s star man Jarrod Bowen fairly quiet.

Right-winger Bowen has 16 goals across all competitions this season in just 22 games, but barely had a sniff in front of goal at Elland Road.

 

“Stuart Dallas superb, up against Jarrod Bowen that was a lot of talk going into the game,” Parker told LS11’s official Youtube account.

“He marked him out of the game. Any time Bowen got the ball there was Stuart Dallas. I can’t remember him in the final third last night because he just wanted to focus defensively.”

TBR’s View:

Dallas is such an underrated player in Bielsa’s squad that once again came good against Hull and the versatility he shows is immense.

The Northern Ireland international has slotted in at so many positions this season, including left-back, right-back, left-winger, right-winger and as a central midfielder.

He adapted to his full-back role against Hull with great professionalism and stuck to his defensive task against Bowen so firmly.

The 28-year-old is an unselfish player that will do any job required for the Leeds team and he’s one the key men leading the club’s great run of form.
