"It was a very deserved win I must say,” Hasenhüttl said, “because they had no chances and we had a few very good ones.”

Leeds failed to register a shot on target for the first time since March 2019 in a dismal outing for Marcelo Bielsa’s men. Though the Saints couldn’t extend their lead, Broja’s goal was enough for the home side to take all three points at the final whistle.

"We only scored once, but I thought the game was very good,” Hasenhüttl said.

"We tried to be more dangerous and I think the plan worked quite well.
