Roberts’ low strike from outside the box seals the win for the Whites and sees them back at the top of the League.
A first-half in which Leeds should’ve been out of sight, chances falling to Alioski, Klich and Douglas being the biggest for the away side. Klich should’ve put Leeds up early on as he curled an effort just wide from the edge of the box.
The next biggest chance then fell to Alioski who after a well worked move was put through but rushed his shot and dragged his left-footed shot wide. A player not performing up to the rest of the team, a goal would have given him an improved confidence.
But the best chance fell at the end of the half to Douglas, after good work on the right my Alioski who crossed low, unmarked at the back post the left-back stumbled and looped the ball high and wide from six-yards-out.
Leeds won the game in the 51st minute through a Roberts’ strike from outside the box, the teenager shrugged off two challenges and fired a low drive into the bottom left corner past Marshall.
Leeds then went on to dominate the rest proceedings. Even though they were trailing Hull failed to show any real drive and their only real chance in the second half was saved by a rushing Peacock-Farrell who was fast off his line to deny Campbell.
