“The good thing about our side is we have lots of goals in it.”

2. Here we go then… no funny business, Leeds. We’re underway at Crawley!

1. Crawley come forward. The ball is bouncing and it’s an effort from Powell, but his shot is tame and well wide of the mark. No harm done.

2. Shackleton gives it away… poor touch from Costa and then a Phillips miskick saw him clear behind.

3. Casilla punches the first corner clear. The hosts recycle it and come forward to win another corner. Good start from Town.

Casilla punches clear

4. The ball is swung in and met by Casilla’s fists. Leeds come away before Costa tries to win a corner but fails. Slow and steady so far.

5. Cooper does some sweeping up from a goal-kick, but the flag is raised anyway. Nichols the guilty party.
