Phil Hay baffled by Jack Harrison's miss for Leeds United
Phil Hay was left baffled by Jack Harrison’s miss for Leeds United against Leicester City in their 1-1 draw.
The Athletic reporter tweeted on his personal account about the winger’s sitter during the match, and it seems as if he can’t believe what happened.
With the score at 1-1, Harrison got on the end of a flicked header from Kalvin Phillips but could only knee the ball over the goal from two yards.
This clearly left Hay stunned; he said: “Huh? Harrison, from two yards out, knees it over an empty goal. Phillips’ flicked header from Raphinha’s cross left the net gaping. 1-1 on 49 mins.”
Harrison has yet to score this season, and with misses like that, he won’t be scoring for some time either.
It was a shocking effort, and his technique was all wrong; if he had used any other part of his body, then you would think that the ball would have ended up in the net.
In the end, this proved to be very costly and resulted in the Whites only managing a draw when a win would have moved them clear of the drop zone.
They had plenty of other chances as well, but this Harrison one stands out as a huge moment in the match that just had to end up in the back of the net.
The main positive for the Whites was that this was an improved display from them against a strong side; however, you have to take chances like that, and we just have to hope this result doesn’t hurt them come the end of the campaign.
