Leeds United showed grit and determination to snatch a point against Brentford at Elland Road. Just as the visitors looked like they were going home with all the points, Pontus Jansson rose high to head the Peacocks back into the game.
The fixture was not short on drama after referee Jeremy Simpson awarded Brentford a controversial penalty in the 68th minute after Ollie Watkins went down under a challenge from Leeds goalkeeper Bailey Peacock-Farrell. But the hosts dug deep and avoided a second defeat of the season thanks to the Swede’s header.
The goal absolutely lifted the roof at Elland Road as supporters went into a frenzy after witnessing the late goal. But while such a reaction was always warranted from the home supporters, spectators were also delighted to see the sheer passion on display from Marcelo Biesla on the sidelines.
Pumping his fist in sheer passion! Check out a clip of Biesla’s reaction here:

Billed up as one of the club’s most important footballing decisions in the summer, the veteran coach has certainly delivered so far into his spell and has attained cult-like status at Elland Road after getting United to play some swashbuckling football. While the draw ensures Leeds still stay top in the Championship, Biesla will surely be looking to grab all 3 point during their next game against Blackburn on Saturday.
