Robinson: Stuart Dallas goal capped off atmosphere at Leeds United in win v Burnley
We’re delighted to welcome former England goalkeeper Paul Robinson as our exclusive columnist as each week he’ll be giving his views on the biggest talking points at Leeds United...
Paul Robinson felt the relief at Elland Road as Stuart Dallas scored for Leeds United in their 3-1 win over Burnley on Sunday.
After squandering numerous chances in the first half before Jack Harrison’s opener, Maxwel Cornet scored a free-kick to equalise for Burnley not long after the break.
Leeds toiled to get restore their advantage and in the 77th minute, a moment of magic by Dallas, 30, saw him get the Whites back ahead.
Dallas scored from outside of the penalty area with a very deft and measured finish to beat Wayne Hennessey in the away side’s goal.
Robinson was at Elland Road yesterday and he noticed how the atmosphere changed when the Northern Ireland star scored.
Speaking to MOT Leeds News, Robinson said: “It was a great goal, a great finish [by Dallas].
“The atmosphere at Elland Road yesterday with the supporters, you go to many grounds and fans sit and wait to be entertained but at Leeds, they support their team for 90 minutes.
“From the start until the end, the atmosphere was fantastic.
“You could feel the relief around the stadium yesterday and Dallas’ goal just capped it off.”
Dallas’ goal against Burnley was his first of the season with the ex-Brentford ace making his 250th appearance for Leeds in their 3-1 win.
He’s played in almost every position yet again this season but has really started to impress even more in the midfield, where he can hopefully stay if the full-backs stay fit.
In other Leeds United news, this senior ace is reportedly on his way out of Elland Road despite Bielsa’s wishes.
