How did Leeds get on at Hull?
A 0-0 draw doesn’t quite tell the picture of an intriguing clash at the MKM Stadium where Leeds had to hold on after Joe Rodon’s red card in the second half.

It came after Leeds controlled the first half and should have gone into half-time boasting a lead over the Tigers, but couldn’t make their dominance pay with goals.

Ethan Ampadu was typically covering ground immensely in and out of possession for Leeds, but Archie Gray looked less influential than he has done in previous outings, earning a 6/10 rating from the YEP for his performance.Leeds United midfielder Archie Gray has impressed so far this season, but the time has come for Daniel Farke to rest him for Glen Kamara this weekend.

Leeds’ return to the Championship has seen them get back into the swing of things with the hectic schedule, gearing up for their third game in the space of six days later today.

Watford at home is the fixture for Leeds as Daniel Farke’s side look for a fourth straight clean sheet and first home win of the season.

Time for Gray to be replaced in the lineup?
It’s not as though Gray has been poor at any point during this season, even at the tender age of 17 he’s seriously impressed, but the last two games have seen his influence shrink somewhat.


The reasons behind it could be plenty, but the main one appears to be the sheer volume of football he has played since the start of the season, starting in every single game so far in all competitions, playing virtually every match to almost completion too.


He was left out of England youth duty earlier in the month as a way to manage his load, and Farke has to make the decision to leave him on the bench this weekend, with Glen Kamara surely up to speed right now.

Leeds paid £5.5 million to bring in the man from Rangers, and it’s about time we saw why, since his cleverness in possession would be fantastic next to Ampadu.

When it comes to breaking down opponents at Elland Road, the midfielder sitting deeper in the attack like Kamara will be crucial in breaking down stubborn defenses, and it’s fair for Gray to not be at that level yet as a teenager.
