COMMENT By Harvey Byrne
Football Insider rates the Leeds players after their 3-0 win against Rotherham in the Championship on Monday afternoon.
Rob Green 7 – Made the all-important saves when called upon, helping his side to a vital clean sheet.
Luke Ayling 7 – Didn’t put a foot wrong in the defence, while also putting some troublesome balls into the box from his good forward runs.
Pontus Jansson 6 – Helped his side keep a clean sheet in a solid display against Rotherham. It was only right that he marked his 20th appearance for the club with no goals conceded.
Kyle Bartley 8 – Helped command the defence and made a crucial slide tackle in the first half to stop Joe Newell going one-on-one with Green. Scored the opening goal with a powerful header from a corner.

Gaetano Berardi 6 – Was overall solid, but he’s far from the long-term replacement for Charlie Taylor.
Liam Bridcutt 8 – Helped dictate play in the middle of the park with strong tackles, while also looking comfortable on the ball. Provided the assist for the second goal with a good cross.
Hadi Sacko 5 – The 22-year-old speed merchant was totally out of sorts and was rightly replaced by Vieira at half-time.
Pablo Hernandez 7 – The 31-year-old proved his class at Elland Road after returning to the line-up after injury. Assisted the opening goal with a deep corner, which was met by the head of Bartley.
Kemar Roofe 6 – Struggled to pose a consistent threat to a poor defence, but a moment of class laid Wood’s second goal of the match on a plate.
Souleymane Doukara 5 – The Frenchman fell back into a wide role with the return of Wood, but he was wasteful with a number of chances before being brought off in the second half
Chris Wood 8 – In his first start after injury the New Zealand international was quiet, but he was in the right places to put home two goals for his side.
Ronaldo Vieira (for Sacko 46 minutes) – 7
Stuart Dallas (for Doukara 74 minutes) – 6
Marcus Antonsson (for Wood 82 minutes) – 6
