Guiseley 2 Leeds United 3 RECAP

  • 7.45pm kick-off at Nethermoor

Bit of Guiseley pressure but two fouls in the box ensure two moments of danger come to nothing. Jenkins is playing the CDM role.

First attempt at goal. Guiseley’s Kane Felix with a low shot from the edge of the area but easily held by Caprile. Back come Leeds, Miller looking decent down the left.

Fine sliding tackle by Jenkins to win the ball near halfway. The Yorkshire Pirlo would have been proud of that one. Game being played at a very quick pace. 0-0.

19: And it’s all down to Summerville who wins and then converts a penalty. Superb skill and footwork in the box, hacked down, stone wall pen which he takes and sends into the bottom left.

Felix gets clear down the right, sends in a low cross that Thompson side foots home past Caprile. 1-1. 24 mins

Gelhardt again, close

Gelhardt with another rapid run towards goal, one two with Summerville and just fails to latch on to the pass. 1-1. 29 mins.

Leeds chance - over the bar

36: Free kick for handball on the edge of the box but Greenwood blasts it over

Greenwood with the free-kick again, this looked more suitable as a bit further out than the last one so could get the ball up and down. Close. Went for top left and just over. He and Joffy both put hands on heads. 1-1. 38 mins.

This time it hits the wall from Greenwood, rebound falls to Miller who scoops an effort wide. 1-1. 41 mins

GOOOOOOOAAAAAAAL Leeds! Greenwood!

You can’t keep giving this lad free kicks there. At the 4th attempt, Greenwood sends in a classic free-kick into the top left. Not saving that. 1-2. 44 mins.
