Leeds United midfielder Kalvin Phillips has taken to Twitter to give his reaction to his side’s failure to win against Brentford on Tuesday evening.

First-Half Goals

Marcelo Bielsa’s team played out a 1-1 draw with Brentford away from home at Griffin Park in the Championship.

Said Benrahma put the Bees in the lead in the 25th minute from close range after taking advantage of a mistake from the visiting side’s goalkeeper Kiko Casilla.

Leeds made it 1-1 on 38 minutes when club captain and central defender Liam Cooper turned in from close range following a corner.

Deserved More

Phillips, who was making a return to the Leeds team after serving a suspension, has expressed his delight on Twitter at getting back on the pitch, and he believes that his side deserved to pick up all three points from the encounter.

Stats

Over the course of the 90 minutes at Griffin Park, hosts Brentford had 33% of the possession, took seven shots of which two were on target, and earned three corners.

Meanwhile, visitors Leeds had 67% of the possession on Tuesday evening, took 13 shots of which six were on target, and earned 10 corners.

Promotion Challenge

The draw with Brentford in London on Tuesday evening means that Leeds are second in the Championship table at the moment with 56 points from 32 matches, three points behind leaders West Bromwich Albion, who have played 31 games.

The West Yorkshire outfit will return to action on Saturday afternoon when they take on Bristol City at Elland Road in the Championship.
