Check out Phil Hay’s player ratings after the goalless draw with Charlton Athletic at The Valley.

Marco Silvestri

No doubt at all that Leeds deserved to win but Silvestri came up with some big saves and none better than his block from Vaz Te. 8/10

Scott Wootton

Not the first time he’s picked up an early booking in a game and Evans was right to replace him a few minutes into the second half. 6/10

Giuseppe Bellusci

Hardly a perfect performance and Charlton had their opportunities but in general he was solid enough and so was the defence. 6/10

Liam Cooper

Another typically good display and United bullied Charlton to the point where they stopped pushing for a winner late on. 7/10

Charlie Taylor

Trademark Taylor: reliable defensively and always overlapping in attack, though his crossing could have been more telling. 7/10

Liam Bridcutt

It took until the second half for United to properly boss the contest but Bridcutt helped to make sure that they did. 7/10

Stuart Dallas

Looked like a top Championship winger in periods after half-time and posed a huge threat on the right during Leeds’ best spells. 8/10

Lewis Cook

The sort of scenario he loves, up against a tiring side who began to back off. So unlucky to see his goalbound shot hit Wood. 8/10

Tom Adeyemi

Adeyemi’s golden chance was one he had to score and his costly miss was a black mark on another powerful display. 7/10

Alex Mowatt

A little disappointing if truth be told and Evans eventually allowed Botaka to have a go. The jury is out on Mowatt as a wide midfielder. 6/10

Chris Wood

After an uneventful first half, his link-up play got better as the game progressed. The clearer chances fell to others though. 6/10

Substitutes:

Gaetano Berardi (for Wootton, 49) - Influential in increasing United’s momentum but was injured in the closing minutes. 7/10

Jordan Botaka (for Mowatt, 64) - Must be desperate to make his presence felt but although he got into good positions, that didn’t translate into good service. 6/10

Sam Byram (for Berardi, 90) - Wasn’t on the pitch for long enough to make a difference. 5/10

Subs (not used): Bailey Peacock-Farrell, Mirco Antenucci, Souleymane Doukara, Luke Murphy.

Stephen Henderson - 6

Alou Diarra - 6

Chris Solly - 6

Substitutes:

El-Hadji Ba (for Reza, 81) - 5

Karlan Ahearne-Grant (for Vaz Te, 88) - 5

Referee: Andy Davies (Hampshire) - A bit keen with his yellow card but in saying that, you’ve seen worse referees than him. 6/10
