Graham Smyth's Leeds United player ratings in narrow Stoke City win as one 9 and one 5 for Whites men

YEP chief football writer Graham Smyth offers his verdict on the Leeds United players' performances after their 1-0 win over Stoke City.

Leeds were leggy at Elland Road but still managed to get the job done as promotion rivals Leicester City and Ipswich Town also won on Tuesday night. Another clean sheet and three points means it is 31 points from the last 33 available and nine shut-outs since the turn of the year as Leeds' impressive late-season form continues.

Here are the ratings after Dan James' first-half strike made all the difference.
