Curtis Main's 81st minute header separated the teams and Mowbray said: "It's nice to get a win, it's been a while for us in the league and we need to keep the points ticking along.

"It's nearly 20 years since we won at home against Leeds. It's a good achievement for this team and we deserved to win.

"We competed against a team that you have to compete with and, on the balance of play, it was right we came out on top.

"Other games can be more of a football game but Leeds put you under pressure, don't allow you to keep the ball and it becomes more of a physical battle. But we came out on top of that."

Goalscorer Main was later sent-off for dissent after being adjudged to have handled to which Mowbray added: "Without being over critical of the official, he got it wrong.

"Curtis is a young boy who is starting his career. He came to us as a free transfer from Darlington and some of the things he can do are breathtaking at times."

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
