'Shows abit of everything' - Sky Sports pundit blown away by Leeds comeback v Millwall
Kevin Phillips has claimed that Leeds United answered a lot of their critics in their 3-2 victory over Millwall on Tuesday night.
The Sunderland icon admitted that it was better for the Whites to have a bad run of form now and that they could come out of it even stronger for their promotion push.
Phillips admitted that the Whites answered a whole host of questions with the inspired fightback under the lights at Elland Road.
“Leeds have had their dip,” the Sky Sports pundit said on The Debate.
“To come back from the way they did tonight, two-nil down shows that they still believe there’s desire, there’s heart.
“To come back from two-nil down against a Gary Rowett side, Millwall, who are bang in form at the moment, it just shows abit of everything – character.

“Everyone’s questioning them, have they gone? That’s almost like sticking two fingers up to them, no we aren’t gone, we’re back.”
Bielsa sent his men out early at half-time with the score sitting at 0-2. It clearly worked, as, by the 66th minute, they had already turned it around.
The three points sent Leeds back top of the Championship after West Brom lost once again in the Welsh capital to Cardiff.
If Leeds can keep up the level of performance that we saw in the second half on Tuesday, they could recapture their form from earlier in the season, and quickly.
The Whites dominated Millwall, having 69% possession, and completing double the amount of passes and shots on goal at Elland Road.
