Leeds ground out a vital win at Bristol City yesterday. Caretaker boss saw his side ease to a 3-0 victory, but the scoreline doesn't tell the whole story.The home side started the brightest, and Leeds lacked any fluency - too many misplaced and over ambitious passes led to them frequently turning over possession. However, somewhat against the run of play, the vistors took the lead, with star man Robert Snodgrass firing home from 15 yards. The game turned on its head soon after - Ross McCormack was through on goal, and clipped by last man James Wilson, who was sent off.The second half saw Leeds with a lot of play, but little to show for it. City keeper David James had little to do as Leeds, not for the first time, struggled to break down 10 men (Wilson's dismissal was the 4th time in the last 5 men the opposition have had a man red carded). It got worse for the home side around the hour mark, as Yannick Bolasi also saw red, following a second yellow - for bringing down the on loan Adam Smith.As expected, this saw Leeds in pretty much full control. The second goal was needed though, and although the linesmans flag ruled out 3 goals, Ross McCormack made the game safe with 10 to go, rifling home from 10 yards. In the last minute, Lucciano Becchio put the icing on the cake with a good finish from close in.Not the best performance from Leeds, but a much needed 3 points - and the hope that a permanant manager is in place by this time next week...
