“Need reinforcements in jan”, “Let’s move on”: Some Leeds fans react to 2-0 home loss + Match report

Leeds United 0-2 Hull City: Tigers end Whites’ 7-game winning run

Leeds United had their seven-game winning run halted by mid-table Hull City after the latter won 2-0 at the home of the former. The Tigers’ best player of the season so far, Jarrod Bowen scored both the goals for them in either half.

The winger scored the opening goal in the 25th minute, pouncing on some poor mistakes and misjudgments from Leeds defenders in their own box. Bowen then had a rather simple task to net the opener from close range.

Around the hour mark, Bowen doubled the lead for Nigel Adkins’ men. This was more of an opportunist goal, as Will Keane was denied by Bailey Peacock-Farell but the ball fell into the path of the 22-year-old to put it away in the back of the net.

On the balance of play, Leeds had chances and over 70% of possession to score a goal or two. However, the final product was lacking throughout. As a result, the game was open and there for the taking, and Hull City players took full advantage of that. Adkins’ men are flying at the moment and that win puts at 14th place in the table.

On the other hand, this ended a run of seven wins in a row for the Peacocks. The lack of squad rotation also seems to be catching up on them, which begs the fact that they need to spend some money in the January transfer window. The good thing from their point of view is that Norwich City also lost, hence, they still have that three-point gap at the top of the table.

Here’s how the Leeds fans reacted on Twitter after this game:
