A fine away win with Snoddy and Mad Max on the scoresheet once again. The main thing is another clean sheet. This is the first time this season we have managed back to back clean sheets.
Lichaj looked solid on his debut but we had Kasper to thank yet again as we keep going to sleep on corners. An excellent three points and with Norwich winning again it will make for a fascinating encounter in West Yorkshire.

Leeds returned to the 4-5-1 formation with Kilkenny replacing Somma to add composure to the midfield but importantly, it allowed Gradel and Snodgrass to maintain their wide positions. Bristol forced a serious of late corners notably down McCartney’s wing and United’s lack of height allowed the opposition to fashion a number of half chances but committed defending combined to produce another clean sheet.

United made it unbeaten in five games and secured a second win and clean sheet in a row at Ashton Gate on Saturday. Robert Snodgrass is in immense form and wreaked havoc down the right wing all afternoon. A pass from Max Gradel set up Snoddy for the first goal and the same pair collaborated for the second goal.
It was all hands on deck at the other end in the final minutes as Bristol looked to get on the scoresheet – but United clung on.

A much needed away victory for United on Saturday down at Ashton Gate.
The Whites were far the better team for the first hour in a scrappy match. Not for the first time this season wingers Gradel and Snodgrass were the difference and provided both goals. A much needed win to keep pace with the top of the league and a stern test against Norwich awaits.

United produced another good display to secure back to back victories and consolidate our place in the play-offs. Gradel and Snoddy again showed why they are two of the most dangerous players in the division after notching another two goals between them. The new loanee from Villa (Lichaj) proved his Premiership class after linking up with Snodgrass well throughout the game.
Overall it was an excellent win.
