Was hardly in the game for 70-odd minutes but got extremely lucky when Madine bundled his weak parry from Pratley again the woodwork. 6/10

Scott Wootton

If anything, Leeds were given more trouble down the other side of the field, in part because Taylor got forward so much. 7/10

Giuseppe Bellusci

Another day where he got through a lot of good work. Compared to him, a returning Sol Bamba appeared shaky. 7/10

Sol Bamba

Picked in place of the injured Liam Cooper and struggled with mistakes and poor clearances before succumbing to injury. 5/10

Charlie Taylor

Got himself forward at every opportunity, occasionally leaving Leeds stretched at the back, but Evans’ players were trying to kill the game. 6/10

Stuart Dallas

A day where the good combination of his attacking and defensive work paid off. Helped to stop Bolton getting into the tie early on. 7/10

Liam Bridcutt

It was noticeable that Diagouraga’s presence gave him far more licence to break forward. At first sight they look like a good partnership. 7/10

Toumani Diagouraga

Was already impressing by the time he slotted away the second goal. It was an easy chance but his long run from midfield made it. 8/10

Lewis Cook

Much, much better in the number 10 role and could find his niche in that area. Was able to get on the ball and play. 8/10

Souleymane Doukara

Did well to take his goal with a neat touch and slick body movement. Once again, ran himself all over the pitch. 7/10

Mirco Antenucci

Bolton were always wary of the threat he posed and his involvement in the second goal was simple but superbly effective. 7/10

Substitutes:

Mustapha Carayol (for Antenucci, 86) - One moment where he lost possession could have been costly but his appearance was fleeting. 5/10

Lewie Coyle (for Bamba, 89) - Dropped onto the right, with Wootton inside, and Leeds were solid in those moments. 5/10

Tom Adeyemi (for Cook, 90) - Might not have touched the ball. 5/10

Subs (not used): Bailey Peacock-Farrell, Casper Sloth, Luke Murphy, Lee Erwin.

Bolton Wanderers:

Ben Amos - 5

Josh Vela - 5

Dorian Dervite - 5

Rob Holding - 6

Liam Trotter - 6

Darren Pratley - 7

Mark Davies - 5

Substitutes:

Jay Spearing (for Davies, 70) - 6

Kaiyne Woolery (for Wellington, 70) - 5
