Leeds United’s consistent stride towards a play-off spot took a big hit following a 2-0 defeat at the hands of Brentford at Griffin Park last night.
Two first half goals, courtesy of Romaine Sawyers and Lasse Vibe, helped sealed the game for the home side and exposed chinks in Leeds’ defences on multiple occasions.
Things went south for Leeds right since the first few minutes, despite Pontus Jansson coming excruciatingly close to scoring on one instance with a header which was cleared off the line.
The defeat has placed Garry Monk’s men in a uncomfortable position with sixth-placed Sheffield Wednesday breathing down their necks just three points below.
With two back-to-back defeats in the past four days, it is clear the next few games will be extremely crucial for Leeds, and midfielder Ronaldo Vieira stepped up to consolidate some much-needed support for his side.
