Leeds fans react on Twitter to Phillips display v Birmingham

By Harvey Byrne

Kalvin Phillips entered the pitch as a 59 minute substitute against Birmingham on Friday evening – and Leeds fans on Twitter were impressed with his display.

The 21-year-old youth graduate was brought on for Eunan O’Kane with the scoreline standing at 1-0 in favour of Leeds.

However, Craig Gardner scored a sweet goal after just 63 minutes and it looked like Leeds may have to accept a draw at St. Andrews.

But, the young Phillips picked up the ball in the box with 66 minutes on the clock and managed to find star striker Chris Wood who slotted home his second goal of the match in the 3-1 victory.

Many of the Leeds fanbase were keen to hail Phillips on social media with the majority keen to point out how good he was.

Here are a selection of their messages on Twitter:

Phillips has played in 31 matches for Leeds in all competitions this season, returning just one goal and one assist.

However, with substitute performances like the one against Birmingham on Friday evening the player may have just found his role in the team.

The win for Leeds has taken them up to fourth place in the league table and they have placed themselves in a great position to achieve a play-off spot with 11 matches left of the season.
