I wrote a match review straight after the Bournemouth match because of how happy I was with it. Today I am even happier but I’ve had quite a few hours to think about it now and it’s even better. Before the game started we basically knew that Darko Milanic, the current manager of Sturm Graz in Austria, was set to take over after the weekend. That made this game a send-off for Neil Redfearn really, what a job he has done. He came in with the team in chaos and has finished with 3 wins and a draw.

Bear in mind I’m writing this straight after the game, I am absolutely buzzing. Honestly, I haven’t felt this good after a Leeds game for a long time. This picture sums it up well, cheers to the Yorkshire post for this.
The game started off in typical Leeds fashion, we were awful, similar to the Birmingham game. The difference was, Bournemouth scored early, nothing special just a typically average goal for Leeds to concede.

After a point earned on Saturday, we are back in full swing playing again at Bournemouth on Tuesday. We did well to earn a point away on Saturday and maybe could have gone on to get the 3 points with the confidence flowing after an Alex Mowatt goal. Both teams will want to make up for their draws at the weekend and I expect a good game of football ahead.
After a decent point at Birmingham, Leeds head to a good side in Bournemouth, it will no doubt be a tough game but who should start for Leeds? Changes are likely after Redfearn confirmed that there are a few niggles.
