After waves of early pressure from Ben Wilkinson’s side, a short corner routine ended up with Max Whittingham who played the ball across for Max Alleyne, who swept home to give us the lead - this was his first goal for the club.
City’s possession style play was on show, as silky build-up play from the defence ended up with Nico O’Reilly on the edge of the box, who played through the oncoming Joel Ndala and he placed a low shot into the far corner to double our advantage.
Leeds were pushing to get themselves back into the game and were leaving a lot of space at the back, which City exploited.
Ndala played through Tom Galvez who made an inverted run into the box and chipped a cross to Dan Ogwuru, which bounced off his upper body and bundled into the net.
Late on in the half, the visitors were charging forward and Harvey Vincent laid the ball off to Kian Coleman who darted towards the goal before smashing an effort past George Murray-Jones to give Leeds a glimmer of hope heading into half time.
Whittingham had the ball in the midfield and his quick ball through met Ogwuru, who fired an effort too hard for the keeper to hold and as the ball rolled towards the goal, Alfie Cresswell bundled it in, in an attempt to clear it out.
The scoring only continued as Whittingham, who was causing the Leeds defence a host of problems, had the ball on the edge of the box before he played it to Ndala who cut inside before curling in his brace.
But the visitors responded instantly as they awarded a spot kick, which Luca Thomas put away confidently.
We were still pushing late on, as a bad clearance by the Leeds defence ended up with O’Reilly, who smashed it in to make it six goals scored in the match and a very welcome three points.
