Pontus Jansson headed home Leeds’ equaliser minutes before the end at Elland Road as Brentford continue their playoff push in the Sky Bet Championship.

Neal Maupay gave the visitors the lead after the hour mark when he converted from 12 yards out to beat Bailey Peacock-Farrell.

Luke Daniels made excellent stops to prevent the league leaders getting back into the game but it was Jansson’s equaliser which broke the Bees’ resistance.

The match saw flashpoints throughout the second-half as Luke Ayling received a second yellow card and Ezgjan Alioski got into it with a member of Brentford’s coaching staff.

Here’s how we rated Brentford’s players…

Luke Daniels – 8 – A very good performance – with his Kalvin Phillips save being the highlight – though the Jansson goal was quite well-headed.

Henrik Dalsgaard – 7 – His surging runs made a strong impression, forced Leeds to contain him better.

Chris Mepham – 7 – Excellent first-half, read the game brilliantly and could’ve assisted the opener. Lost his head a bit with the booking.

Ezri Konsa – 7 – Solid. Partnered well with Mepham in defence, even with Tyler Roberts’ lurking presence.

Moses Odubajo – 7 – Good to see him back after a long time out but had a shaky start. Decent game, however, lucky not to see red. Replaced with Yoann Barbet.

Kamohelo Mokotjo – 8 – Important figure in the Brentford engine room, breaking up play and restarting attacks. Imperious figure. Man of the match.

Romaine Sawyers – 5 – Struggled at times to create as his passes were picked off. Brought energy to the midfield in an otherwise underwhelming performance.

Nico Yennaris – 6 – A quiet game for him, had Mateusz Klich and later substitute Lewis Baker to contend with.

Sergi Canós – 6 – Mixed. Made some uncharacteristically poor deliveries, made he made a great pass into Maupay. Why did he try to headbutt Ezgjan Alioski? Replaced with Benrahma.

Ollie Watkins – 7 – Gave both full backs food for thought with his incisive movement and runs at speed. He won the penalty, though it’s questionable whether it was genuine.

Neal Maupay – 7 – Had a couple chances that Bailey Peacock-Farrell was equal to. Did the dirty work of hard pressing well. Good outing.


Said Benrahma – 6

Yoann Barbet – 6

Alan Judge – N/A
