Leeds no footballing peacocks

Andy Munro watches Blues get a last-minute winner against Leeds.

This game was no showpiece but on balance Blues deserved to edge it, particularly with a decent spell of second half pressure.

The win was built from the back with Dian Sanderson superb and Kevin Long not far behind. John Ruddy was faultless behind them and it will be a tragedy if we lose him for less than a million, which we would need for an adequate replacement (on that note the Cheltenham keeper who performed heroics against the Blues would be a good shout). Also worthy of mention were our two full backs, who had pace to burn both defensively and offensively.

In midfield Krystian Beilik and ivan Sunjic were excellent and in the latter’s case there must be enough hat eating amongst Blues fans to empty a millinery. Flanking them Siriki Dembele was a box of tricks, although could have done better with the final ball and Juninho Bacuna showed as much graft as he has undoubted skills.

Perhaps if there is an issue it’s up front, with Keshi Anderson failing to have a pot shot when he had the chance and Scott Hogan running around like a little boy lost. In fact it took the old warhorse the Juke to convert from the spot in stoppage time to bag all three points.

Also worth a mention was a good solid display from Jordan James and yet another exciting cameo from koji Myoshi. Maybe we can start to dream.
