Leeds United would have been feeling slightly relieved on Boxing Day, as they rescued a late point against promotion-chasing Preston North End.
Stuart Dallas’ deflected strike just a minute from time saw them cancel out Alan Browne’s well-placed finish in the first-half at Elland Road.
The result means that Marcelo Bielsa’s side are eight points clear of third-placed Brentford in the Championship table as we head into this weekend’s fixtures.
Eddie Nketiah was a second-half substitute for the Whites, and made a difference going forward, and will be hoping for further opportunities in the side, with his future still somewhat ‘up in the air’.
The Arsenal loanee took to Twitter following the draw against Preston, and labelled the outcome as a ‘hard fought point’.

Plenty of Leeds United fans took to Twitter to respond to Nketiah’s message after the game against the Lilywhites as they issued their thoughts on his performance.
