Five things we learned about Leeds United after 4-3 Millwall loss

Leeds United have been up, down, rising up and falling back again this season. All that could be seen across the 90 minutes vs Millwall.

An abject opening 45 minutes saw the Whites roundly booed by a packed Elland Road. An effective start was swept away by a determined Millwall outfit who entered the half 2-0. Even worse, home side Leeds were down to 10 men, captain Liam Cooper becoming the Whites’ third successive red card.

Going in like lambs to the slaughter, Leeds came out like uncaged beasts in the second half. Within a minute of the restart, Leeds were level after Pierre-Michel Lasogga emphatically finished Kemar Roofe’s ball into the box.

Just over 10 minutes after that and Roofe bundled home the equaliser after a ping-pong rebound episode after Jordan Archer spilled an easy ball. Leeds fans were ecstatic as the 10-men Whites pulled level. Just after the hour mark, Leeds were ahead after Lasogga slammed in a thunderbolt left-footed drive from outside the area.

The fairytale wasn’t to be, as the game crept towards the final whistle two late goals, the winner two minutes into time added on, saw Millwall finally overcome the dogged, yet spent 10 men of Leeds United.
