Third and final change

85: Good feet by James to work an opening but curler towards the top left is saved

Chance of a break for Leeds

83: But Roberts’ pass looking for Struijk’s run is too heavy and behind for a goal kick. Roberts is at 10 and Gelhardt still upfront

79: Sessegnon on for Rugulion who looks like being the match winner

79’: Moura works his way to the edge of the box but blazes over

73: Roberts on for Forshaw

BIG CALL - harsh on Leeds, no penalty

72: Corner is cleared, Leeds come again, Gelhardt shot is flying into the corner and hits Kane’s hand accidentally. VAR check and nothing doing
