Leeds beat Queens Park Rangers 1-0 on Wednesday night at Elland Road in a game Daniel Farke described as “hard work”.
The only goal of the game was scored by Crysencio Summerville in the first half after he latched on to a brilliant pass by Georginio Rutter.
Summerville continued his good run of form in the team. Farke made four changes to the team that lost to Southampton last weekend with Ayling, Rodon, Gray and Anthony returning to the lineup.
The German coach was honest in the post match presser, saying that not every win has to be “champagne football”:
“I’m really happy. You can be on a great spell like we were before Southampton but it’s the same, when there’s one difficult result, the next game is difficult. To grind out a result, it’s never champagne or football fireworks. It’s hard work.”
Farke was also happy with the team’s reaction following that humbling defeat at Southampton:
“To answer a disappointing result with a win is fantastic.”
Farke on the second half: “It was just the way the game developed. You don’t score the second goal and all of a sudden, the opponent thinks ‘okay, there’s a chance.’ We still dominated each and every statistic.”
The Whites take on Bristol City this weekend as they look to secure a third successive home win this season.
