Win against Wolves a 'huge result' for Leeds United - Clinton Morrison

Leeds United took a big step towards securing their Premier League safety for another season last night with a dramatic 3-2 win away at Wolves.

Luke Ayling fired home a 91st-minute winner for Jesse Marsch’s side after Jack Harrison and Rodrigo had drawn the Whites level from 2-0 down just after the hour mark.

The victory is Leeds’ second in similarly jaw-dropping fashion in a week after scoring an even later winner at home to Norwich City last weekend.

Clinton Morrison was very boisterous about Marsch’s Leeds on the BBC’s Football Daily podcast after what he labelled as a “huge result” for the club.

“It’s big; getting back-to-back wins in the Premier League is hard,” Morrison said. “This is a huge result for Leeds because they still have a lot of hard games to come.

“This will breathe confidence in that side with Phillips and Cooper coming back. Obviously, it’s a huge blow to lose Patrick Bamford because they haven’t got that centre forward who can score goals.”

On a roll

Before Marsch’s appointment at Elland Road, Leeds was the team that everybody wanted to face because there was little quality in attack and virtually no defending whatsoever.

The American has done wonderfully to change the feeling around LS11 in such a rapid timeframe and all of a sudden, teams are starting to fear the mighty Leeds United.

There was understandable sadness when Marcelo Bielsa was given the sack after everything he had done for the club but I don’t think there is any Leeds fan who would now claim it to be the wrong decision.

Having beaten a Europe-chasing team in their own backyard, it seems like there might not be any stopping this team and they are going to back themselves to win every game from now on, even if they go behind.

It’s a sign of great team cohesion if they can consistently score late to change games and Leeds United are going to go Marsching on together.

In other Leeds United news, there is an expectation from local journalists that this Whites loanee will be away from the club again next season.
