Leeds have secured their first win in pre-season over Irish club Shelbourne. Early goals from Souleymane Doukara and Hadi Sacko got Monk’s side off to a flyer. Two Leeds sides played in the game, the first 60 minutes and then the last 30.
With Liam Cooper injured it shows the lack of depth in certain areas. Toumani Diagouraga and Luke Murphy (who was named captain) both had spells at centre-back as Leeds only had Sol Bamba and Kyle Bartley as first-team players in that position.
Alex Mowatt looked sharp, playing in the attacking midfield position. Quick passing in the central areas was the most noted factor by the fans and pundits who made the journey. Leeds now move on to play Shamrock Rovers on Saturday, a 3pm kick-off in Dublin.
