The home support was desperate for something to get excited about and a clash between Leeds keeper Casilla and Wright after a 50/50 challenge had everyone off their seats. This was a tetchy encounter throughout with referee Peter Bankes dishing out eight bookings in total.
But Bielsa’s side deservedly recorded their 21st win and their long hoped for return to the top flight remains in view.
