Leeds United made yet another huge stride in their quest for promotion this season as a Chris Wood header secured Garry Monk’s men a most crucial of wins over promotion rivals Derby County at Elland Road on Friday.
The win moved United upto third in the Championship table with the race for promotion turning ever so tight.
While the scoreline resembled that of a close game, it was in truth a flattering one for Derby who on the night were thoroughly outplayed by their opponents. Leeds put in a commanding display with only their profligacy in front of the goal preventing them from registering more in a match where they had 19 shots compared to Derby’s 6.
Leeds’ dominance as well as frustration at not scoring more was all but summed up through a Tweet from the club’s official Twitter account. The tweet highlighting the stats from the game presented the corners taken by the Leeds team at a whopping 502, obviously referring to the numerous missed corners and chances squandered by Leeds during the course of the match.
