‘On a par with Ben White’ – Many Leeds fans are talking about one man after Reading victory



Leeds United winger Jack Harrison scored an 87th-minute winner to help the Whites grab three points against Reading at the Madejski Stadium last night, leaving many fans of the Yorkshire club full of praise for the 22-year-old.

The result means Leeds moved to the top of the Championship, though West Bromwich Albion would climb back above them with a win against Bristol City this evening.

Marcelo Bielsa’s side were in the ascendancy throughout but as has so often been the case this season were unable to turn their dominance into goals.

For the second time in four days, Leeds required a late winner to seal the three points.

In the dying moments of the game, the Whites broke forward after a Reading free-kick and Helder Costa found Harrison at the back post to nod in the winner.

Nice and easy question to start with - Who scored Leeds' first goal of the 2019/20 campaign?

The Manchester City loanee has been in fantastic recent form–making seven goal contributions (three goals, four assists) in his last eight games.

The 22-year-old has contributed to more Championship goals (four goals, four assists) than any player in the Whites squad this season and has stepped up in some vital moments.

Harrison has been heavily criticised in the past but appears to have won over many Leeds fans, who took to Twitter to praise him following last night’s winner.
