Leeds boss credits players for Huddersfield win

Leeds boss Daniel Farke says he was pleased with the result against Huddersfield and praised the players for the result.

The Whites got off the blocks quickly with an opener for Daniel James within the first 20 minutes. Summerville added the second after 11 minutes, and the Dutch forward set up Daniel James for the third goal just three minutes later. Summerville was on the score sheet in first half stoppage time rounding out a 4-0 thrashing.

The second half was disappointing according to Farke but he says he was pleased that the team bounced back from the midweek loss to Stoke City:

“Firstly, you could see how much it meant to the players to win the derby and react to Stoke. Perfect manner. Electrifying first half. All over them. Not perfect because got the feeling, we did not make enough of our dominance.”

Even after praising the team for the win, Farke pointed out a few things he didn’t like during the game. He highlighted the fact that the team lifted their foot off the pedal after a wonderful first half performance:

“Allowed them too much space to make a cross or two. Played with too much enthusiasm at times. They were excellent. Still situations and periods I got the feeling our game management could have been better. Allowed them to have dangerous situations and spells, best practise. Fourth goal felt like 500 passes until we scored. So calm to exhaust them and lure them in.

Pleased with this result.”

The Whits have a tough upcoming game against league leaders Leicester City.
