Leeds fans lavish praise on Ezgjan Alioski

Leeds United opened up a five-point lead at the top of the Championship table courtesy of a 2-0 win over Derby County at Elland Road on Friday night.

Kemar Roofe made the breakthrough in the 20th minute, before Jack Harrison doubled the home side’s advantage early in the second period.

There were a number of standout performers on the night, but it would be fair to say that the Leeds fans absolutely loved Ezgjan Alioski’s performance at left-back.

Alioski – a 2017 arrival from Lugano – was blasted by the Leeds supporters following the team’s 2-1 defeat at Queens Park Rangers in the FA Cup last weekend.

The 26-year-old put in a fine performance against Derby on Friday night, however, and it seems that the club’s fans agree that he is better as a full-back.

It is funny how quickly things can change in football and Alioski’s display against the Rams showed that he can be a big player in the second half of the season.
