Leeds United played out a dramatic six-goal thriller and emerged as winners on Saturday.
Javi Gracia’s charges secured a 4-2 win at Wolverhampton Wanderers, albeit having led 3-0 at one point.
The Whites took the lead early on through Jack Harrison, who side-footed home from Wilfried Gnonto’s cut-back.
Luke Ayling then doubled the Whites’ lead on 49 minutes, the unmarked defender heading home past Jose Sa.
Just after the hour, substitute Rasmus Kristensen dispossessed Jonny and slotted into the corner of the net.
The Wolves defender then made amends with a volleyed finish on 65 minutes to keep his side alive.
Then, Matheus Cunha netted with a deflected strike in the 73rd minute to set alarm bells ringing among the visitors.
However, the hosts found themselves a man down after Jonny got a straight red card for a studs-up tackle on Ayling.
Late on, Rodrigo Moreno lifted the ball over the onrushing Sa for his 11th goal of the campaign.
Max Wober was one of the best Leeds players on the day, earning rave reviews and clocking up some good stats.
Leeds Live gave the 25-year-old 7 out of 10 for his efforts against Wolves.
‘Made some big blocks throughout the afternoon,’ they wrote.
‘Unlucky to see the hosts’ second goal nip in off his heel.’
Likewise, the Yorkshire Evening Post went with 7 out of 10 for Wober.
‘Battled hard. Dished out rollickings. Had a lot of defending to do as crosses came in,’ they wrote.
Whoscored, who gave Wober 6.70 out of 10, showed the impressive stats he clocked up.
He took 52 touches and made 36 passes, both the second-highest of any Leeds player (behind Marc Roca).
Wober also registered eight clearances, two blocks, one tackle and one interception.
Leeds had the £11million man to thank for getting through the day having only conceded twice.
