Leeds Lose To Bradfod PA

A Leeds United XI tasted defeat at Bradford Park Avenue on Wednesday evening.
New signing Andy Lonergan made his debut in a game which saw the home side emerge victorious 2-1, but the former Preston goalkeeper made a couple of good second half saves, including one terrific effort to deny the hosts a third goal.
Hungarian trialist Boldiszar Bodor also featured in a Leeds side that included Mike Grella, making his first appearance of the summer, and a number of the club's young professionals.
It was a disappointing showing from United in the first period, and the home side were two goals to the good before the break. Aiden Savory scored the first with a long distance strike before Richard Marshall capitalised on a pull-back to make it 2-0.
Leeds looked much better after the break and Dominic Poleon was twice denied before Grella's mazy run ended with his shot being forced for a corner.
United did a pull a goal back when Poleon showed good strength to hold off the challenge of two defenders before touching the ball home, but it took two good saves from Lonergan to deny the home side a third goal during the closing stages.
