(Video) Unreal defending from Luke Ayling during Leeds’ 3-2 win over Ipswich

A heroic block

Leeds United edged Ipswich Town 3-2 in an enthralling encounter at Elland Road, thus ensuring their position at the top of the Championship table.

The Peacocks were stretched all the way by the away side and had Luke Ayling to thank for preserving their advantage through some dogged defending. With the scoreline at 2-1 in favour of the home side, Ipswich threatened to equalise from a low cross from the right wing, only to be denied by a last ditch tackle by the Leeds man.

The 6’1 defender used all of his big frame to slide in and get the faintest of touches to deflect the shot away from goal. A game changing moment, check out the effort from Ayling below –
