Graham Smyth's Leeds United player ratings vs Stoke City as one 8 given and five get 4/10 - gallery
Leeds United were beaten for only the second time in eleven games on Wednesday night as a Pascal Struijk own goal condemned the Whites to a 1-0 defeat against Stoke City. Second half substitute Patrick Bamford had missed a penalty just minutes before the Potters struck the game's only goal as the 30-year-old remains in search of his first goal of the season.
United struggled to find their rhythm at the Bet365 Stadium and were consequently punished after Daniel Farke made changes to his starting XI, swapping Saturday’s match-winner Crysencio Summerville for Jaidon Anthony and bringing summer signing Ilia Gruev in for Glen Kamara. Willy Gnonto also returned to the line-up in place of Dan James.
Here are the YEP’s player ratings from tonight’s fixture.
