Three wins and a draw is a very creditable return from the four latest league games played. Barnsley came to Leeds 11 not in the best of form, but Leeds had not recorded a victory in six attempts and wanted to go into the break with another victory under their belts and finally get this particular 'monkey' off our backs.
Neil Warnock shuffled his pack and brought back Aidy White and moved Lee Peltier to left back but the rest was the same as at Bolton, Paul Green also returned to the bench after a couple of months out.
It was the visitors who started better with a great chance missed early on and Paddy Kenny saving another. Leeds changed formation and gradually got into the game and after a good run by Lee Peltier was stopped by a foul just outside the area, the referee pointed to the spot - much to the annoyance of Keith Hill and his players. Luciano Becchio claimed his 9th of the season with an impudent chip, sending the keeper the wrong way to send Leeds in 1-0 at the break.
Barnsley worked hard in the second half to get the equaliser and they carved out two great chances, one was blazed wide and Paddy Kenny saved brilliantly deep into injury time. Another player was taken off injured with Tonge suffering a bad shoulder injury, it is hoped it's not as bad as it looked. This was not Leeds at their best but sometimes you dig in and grind out results, this was one of those games. They looked tired today.
Man of the Match: Paddy Kenny, two very impressive saves at key times and confident in all he did.
Fans: 8/10 Kept encouraging the team
Mr Bates: 2/10 fans generally think your dragging your feet, this deal should have been done months ago!
