Leeds welcomed Middlesbrough to Elland Road on Friday night and after a failing uneventful 90 minutes, the two sides shared the points with a 0-0 draw. The clean sheet will be a positive for Marcelo Bielsa and that is mainly down to the commanding display from his young number one.
What an atmosphere last night! Please to get another clean sheet and to stay unbeaten. Looking forward to the international break and meeting up with the lads #Lufc #mot #GAWA pic.twitter.com/bNUx2gHhmi

Leeds United are one of just two sides in the Championship who are yet to taste defeat in the league, and thanks to their draw with The Whites on Friday, Boro are the other one. The Elland Road faithful will be keen to see their unbeaten run stretch even further as they aim to get promoted from England’s second tier under the revolutionary Argentinian this season.
The Whites are now off for two weeks and will be counting down the days before they return to Championship action against Millwall at The Den on the 15th September. Travelling to Millwall is never easy and it will be up to the impressive young Peacock-Farrell to ensure that Leeds stay strong at the back and keep a clean sheet, with Bielsa relying on his attacking presence of Kemar Roofe and Patrick Bamford to give the Yorkshire club all three points.
