Tom Lees has delivered a glowing verdict on Leeds United’s fans when talking to the Sheffield Star after the Whites earned a 1-0 win at Elland Road over Steve Bruce’s side.
Leeds took their time in finally making the break through. Pablo Hernandez’s cross was turned into the back of the net by Manchester City loanee Jack Harrison, just after the hour mark.
Marcelo Bielsa’s men had 28 shots throughout the 90 minutes. The likes of Patrick Bamford, Tyler Roberts and Pontus Jansson all missed golden chances to break the deadlock.
Former Leeds United defender Lees reacted to the atmosphere at Elland Road after losing to his old side, describing it as “brilliant” before stating that it was a one-sided game.
“The atmosphere was brilliant,” Lees said. “It was just a shame that the game was just so one sided really. But these are the big games you want to play in and hopefully next season we can be the dominant team in these sorts of games rather than hanging on for pretty much 90 minutes.”
Lees was excellent for Wednesday. Captaining the Owls, Lees starred at the back and kept Bamford in his pocket for much of the match. Would he get in the Leeds side, if Leeds looked to bring him back?
On Saturday’s showing, he would be a decent addition. Lees has matured since leaving Elland Road to join Wednesday back in the summer of 2014.
The 28-year-old is a rock and although he may not boast the ability on the ball that Bielsa prefers, he would be a decent addition as cover for Liam Cooper and Jansson.
