Pat Nevin believes that Leeds recorded a comfortable win against Cardiff after withstanding some early pressure.
Leeds earned a 2-0 victory on Saturday as they registered their second consecutive win in the Championship, after their 2-1 triumph over Blackburn mid-week.
Garry Monk’s side were involved in a tight affair but second-half goals from Chris Wood and Pablo Hernandez secured the three points against Cardiff.
Forward Wood stepped up to give his side the lead in the 62nd minute with a confident penalty and ex-Swansea man Hernandez made sure of the points late on.
BBC pundit Nevin, who also played at clubs such as Chelsea and Everton, told BBC Sport’s EFL Live Reporting feature (17 Saturday 14.26) that Leeds won the match comfortably in the end.
“Leeds toughed it out. They had to withstand some really good every from Cardiff in the first 30 minutes,” he said. “I though that whoever got the first goal would go on and win quite comfortably, and that’s what happened.”
The club’s fans expressed their delight on Twitter towards the performance of Wood as he continued his recent form in front of goal.
Monk’s side were equally impressive in defence and they kept just their second clean sheet of the new campaign.
Leeds host Ipswich in their next Championship match but face Blackburn in the EFL Cup third-round on Tuesday first.
