Kalvin Phillips took to Instagram to comment on Leeds United’s win against West Brom on Tuesday, and express his delight as Tyler Roberts and Luke Ayling continued their comebacks from injury.
Marcelo Bielsa’s men are back at the top of the Championship after the 1-0 victory. Kyle Bartley turned in Gjanni Alioski’s shot before half-time for the decisive goal.
Leeds were excellent in the first-half and probably felt that they should have had a more comfortable lead going into the break. It certainly looked as though they were in danger of being punished in the second-half.
The Baggies were the better side after the break. And with Leeds conceding late goals to squander leads against Nottingham Forest and Derby County after dominating, it was no surprise that there was an incredibly tense atmosphere inside Elland Road.
But Leeds dug in and secured the win. It was a real statement given West Brom’s position in the table and the Whites’ previously underwhelming record at home.
And there were further positives for Bielsa’s side. Roberts made his first home appearance for Leeds this season. The Wales international – who featured in the weekend defeat at Charlton – came off the bench at the break and was actually brought off as the Baggies pushed for an equaliser.
It was Ayling who replaced Roberts. The right-back had also been sidelined throughout pre-season. He recently made his return with the under-23s, and helped see the game out.
And Phillips commented on the pair returning in his post on social media after the victory…
