Leeds United fans think Dallas deserves credit for performance against Wigan

Stuart Dallas has not had the easiest ride as a Leeds United player in recent seasons.

The 27-year-old has been at Elland Road since 2015, but he has been in and out of the team under various managers.

This season, the Northern Ireland international has only started four of his 11 Championship appearances.

On Sunday, Marcelo Bielsa chose to switch Dallas from his natural position as a winger and play him at right-back due to a handful of injury problems.

The Irishman played the full 90 minutes against Wigan Athletic, who took the lead in the sixth minute via a free kick from Chelsea loanee Reece James.

The Whites bounced back instantly through Pablo Hernandez, who struck the equaliser three minutes later.

Kemar Roofe found the winner for Leeds, who moved to the top of the Championship table as a result.

On Twitter, plenty of Leeds fans posted their thoughts on Dallas’s performance and there was praise galore.
