Leeds United: Fans react to Kalvin Phillips’ big moment in centenary game

Marking Leeds United’s 100-year anniversary as a football club, it’s only fitting that Leeds-born youngster Kalvin Phillips scores the winning goal on an occasion to remember. 

Is Marcelo Bielsa capable of taking Leeds United up?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Not only was United’s 1-0 victory at home to Birmingham crucial in keeping up the race for promotion, but it was also a wonderful way to celebrate your landmark centenary year as a football club.

Marcelo Bielsa’s side pressed repeatedly to break the deadlock for the majority of the game, and just when Leeds fans were thinking it may not be their side’s day, Phillips stepped up to the plate and sent Elland Road into party mode.

Taking advantage of some sloppy play out from the back by the visitors, Man City loanee Jack Harrison latched onto a loose ball and fed Phillips for the only goal of the game.

Celebrating a monumental occasion, Lilywhites supporters took to social media to praise the local lad for delivering on such a special day.
