GOAL - Leeds United 1 (Phillips 66) Blues 0

Phillips puts the hosts ahead after they pounce on an error by Colin.

@SkyBetChamp | #BluesLIVE

64 - Shouts for a penalty as Gimenez goes to ground inside the box, but the referee is having none of it. Still goalless.

⚪️ 0-0 🔵

@SkyBetChamp | #BluesLIVE

60 - Chance! Dean makes a bursting run from inside his own-half, all the way into the penalty area after playing a one-two with Jutkiewicz - he squares it across goal - it comes to Gimenez who takes a touch before seeing his shot blocked.

⚪️ 0-0 🔵

@SkyBetChamp | #BluesLIVE

52 - Close! Gimenez is fouled deep inside the hosts half, but the referee waves play on as Villalba picks it up and tries an audacious shot from thirty yards out which curls narrowly wide of Casilla's left post. Good opportunity for Blues.

⚪️ 0-0 🔵

49 - Substitute Nketiah goes down under a challenge from Dean and the hosts have a free-kick right on the edge of the area, Alioski takes it, and sees his effort go well wide of Camp's goal.

⚪️ 0-0 🔵

HT - Leeds United 0 Blues 0

The two sides go into the break level, a big second-half coming up. 👊

@SkyBetChamp | #BluesLIVE

39 - Leeds commit men forward, catching Blues on the break. Dallas plays a one-two before firing an effort at Camp from inside the area. The Blues 'keeper makes a fine save but the linesman's flag was raised for offside anyway.

⚪️ 0-0 🔵

@SkyBetChamp | #BluesLIVE

31 - The hosts go inches away from taking the lead. Bamford's low strike across the face of goal and towards the bottom right corner of the net goes narrowly wide.

⚪️ 0-0 🔵

@SkyBetChamp | #BluesLIVE

26 - Costa latches onto a through ball and makes his way inside the area, and from a tight angle, drags the ball low back across the six-yard area but Dean is there to clear behind for a corner. Nothing comes from the resulting set-piece.

⚪️ 0-0 🔵

@SkyBetChamp | #BluesLIVE

22 - Blues are defending in numbers at the moment, Alioski is getting a lot of joy down the left channel but our defence are holding firm so far. Entertaining opening. 💪

⚪️ 0-0 🔵

@SkyBetChamp | #BluesLIVE

7 - It's an electric atmosphere inside the ground - with the hosts the first to go close through Alioski, he picks up the ball on the right, just outside the area, and takes aim with a powerful shot but Camp is equal to it.

⚪️ 0-0 🔵

@SkyBetChamp | #BluesLIVE

We are underway here at Elland Road.
