Stat Attack: All you need to know about Leeds 2-2 Brentford

Published

on

Patrick Bamford marked his return from injury with a dramatic 95th minute equaliser for Leeds as they drew 2-2 with Brentford.

Marcelo Bielsa’s side had taken the lead on the half hour mark when Tyler Roberts steered home Raphinha’s low cross with an outstretched leg.

The Bees rallied in the second-half and were level shortly after the restart as Shandon Baptiste found the bottom corner from Sergi Canos’ deflected ball.

Canos completed the turnaround on 61 minutes when he was played in behind the home defence by Bryan Mbeumo before firing into the roof of Illan Meslier’s net.

But in the final minute of stoppage time a corner given away by visiting goalkeeper Alvaro Fernandez was flicked on by Luke Ayling before substitute Bamford converted from close range to rescue a point.

Leeds boss Bielsa did not want to get carried away with his side’s late point.

He said: “To have drawn the game the way we did, it changes the flavour of it. But if you look at the game in a general context, we should have won it.

“We conceded the first part of the game, but without receiving any goals. From the initial fifteen minutes onwards, we had a good half an hour.

“The second half we started well. We had incomings and outgoings of [Luke] Ayling and [Kalvin] Phillips, where we went a few moments without them.

“Then after Kalvin came back on and went back off, that made us lose organisation, but it shouldn’t have been this way.

“In those fifteen minutes in the second half, we did receive the goals.

“But the final thirty minutes, with a lot more difficulties but a lot of perseverance to attack, I think we ended up again at a result that was fair on one side and insufficient if you look at the whole game.”

Did you know?
No side has scored more 90th-minute goals in the Premier League this season than Leeds — one winner vs Crystal Palace plus equalisers against Wolves and Brentford.

The Bees have managed just one win at Elland Road in any of their last 15 league visits (D7 L7), a 1-0 Championship win in February 2015.

The Whites have dropped 12 points from winning positions in the league this season, twice as many as they did in the whole of the 2020-21 campaign.

Baptiste is the third Grenadian player to score in the Premier League, after Jason Roberts and Delroy Facey.

Meslier has become the youngest goalkeeper in Premier League history to reach 50 appearances in the competition, nine days younger than Joe Hart was in January 2009 when he reached the milestone.
