Garcia Thrilled Following Leeds Win

Garcia Thrilled Following Leeds Win

It was triple delight time for head coach Oscar Garcia, because not only was he pleased with the result, he was pleased with the clean sheet and he was pleased to see Leo Ulloa grab his second consecutive goal.

Speaking to the Official Site following the one nil victory, the gaffer focused mainly on our defensive exploits during the game, because clearly in the build up and the preparation a big part of our work would've been in working out strategies to deal with the Championships' leading goalscorer Ross McCormack, and we did that admirably over the course of 90 minutes.

'It was not an easy game for the defence against McCormack who has scored 22 goals and he is a fantastic player, he is not easy to mark, but all the defence were really good.'

They had to be as well, not only does the tally of 22 goals say everything about his form this season, but McCormack has also hit five goals in his last three games for Leeds, so confidence certainly wasn't an issue for him.

Oscar goes on to say that of course we'd like to beat teams by a greater margin and more comprehensively, but ultimately whatever you score you only get three points.

'When you win, and you see the performance of all the players, the only thing that I can be is very happy. We wanted to get back to winning ways and we did that against Doncaster, and we wanted to win again at home in front of our own fans. I am very pleased.'

Garcia goes on to praise the performance of Kazenga LuaLua who he says gave him everything he asked for when he came off the bench in the 57th minute and of course for Leo, he obviously hopes these two goals are the first of many more to come between now and the end of the 2013-14 season.

One issue ahead of the game was the selection of Inigo Calderon ahead of Bruno, but the gaffer cleared things up saying that Bruno had suffered a slight thigh injury ahead of the game and that's why he was left out, but he was delighted with the way Calderon came into the team and performed on the day as well.
