Some Leeds United fans react to performance of Stuart Dallas after Luton draw

The Whites were wasteful on a night when they could have stuck one foot firmly in the Premier League.

Leeds United were given an almighty scare by Luton Town last night as Nathan Jones’ men earned themselves a deserved point from a 1-1 draw.

The Whites fell behind in the 50th minute when Harry Cornick fired an unstoppable effort beyond Illan Meslier.

League leaders Leeds weren’t to be denied, however, with Stuart Dallas scoring an equaliser on 63 minutes.

Marcelo Bielsa’s team now sit six points clear of Brentford in third and despite this setback, remain on course for a place in the Premier League.

Leeds were heavily fancied for promotion last season but fell at the play-off hurdle. The Whites will desperately hope to park this result and get back to winning ways at the weekend.

The top-flight is within touching distance for Bielsa’s team and having not sat at football’s top table since 2004, they will hope to get over the line as quickly as possible.

One man who played out of his skin last night was left-back Dallas. The Northern Irishman is Leeds’ utility man and once again he came up trumps when it mattered.

He picked up an injury during the contest and could miss the weekend game with Blackburn. Dallas timed his fourth goal of the season to perfection, however.

Here is a selection of tweets from the club’s supporters regarding the performance of the 29-year-old.
