Leeds dangerous in the final third
It's a similar tale in the second-half, Saints are seeing a greater portion of the ball but it's Leeds that look really threatening in the final third. A double save needed from McCarthy, firstly clearing Raphinha's ball off the line and then Alioski's rebound shot.

Ambitious from Djenepo
Moussa Djenepo releases a shot from long range but it goes well wide, strong drive from Saints so far.
