WANDERERS (4-4-2)

ADAM BOGDAN...7 Never under massive pressure but made a couple of good saves at the end. Felt for him as Smith’s late goal went in.

ALEX BAPTISTE...8 Another very solid performance from the full-back, who kept a decent player in Stewart to a bare minimum of crosses.

ZAT KNIGHT...8 The big man has had his knockers this season but a first goal in three-and-a-half years capped some great performances of late.

DAVID WHEATER...8 His excellent form just keeps going. Defended a lot of first-half crosses and forced Wickham into midfield.

TIM REAM...7 Gradually wore down Kebe to the point that he was substituted. Continues to succeed as a full-back through sheer effort.

NEIL DANNS...7 Worked his tail off for the team and helped keep a midfield shape so important to the way Freedman’s team plays.

JAY SPEARING...9 Directed operations in the middle of the park and provided some outstanding quality from set pieces too.

MEDO KAMARA...8 Nothing flashy but highly effective. Medo kept the ball moving around in midfield and really kept Leeds on their toes.

MARK DAVIES...8 Summed up the second half commitment by starting and finishing a move that spanned the length of the pitch for the fourth.

LUKAS JUTKIEWICZ...9 Leeds just could not handle him, be it with the ball at his feet or when Wanderers went direct and put it up in the air.

JOE MASON...7 Got the ball rolling with a brilliant finish. Ran the channels and pulled the Leeds defence all over the place.

Subs: Trotter 6 (for Mason 69) – Made sure that Leeds had no route back. Chung-Yong 6 (for Davies 74) – Got involved and won a late free kick.  Moritz 7 (for Spearing 83) – Nearly broke the net with a late strike.

Not used: Lonergan, Hutton, Eagles, Hall.

Star man – Lukas Jutkiewicz: Talk about your all-action heroes. The Juke terrorised the Leeds defence from every single set piece, created two goals and helped himself to another in what really was a complete performance.
