There was a return to winning ways for Leeds United over the weekend as they beat Wolves 4-2 at Molineux.
Leeds took a 3-0 lead after goals from Jack Harrison, Luke Ayling and Rasmus Kristensen. However, Jonny and Matheus Cunha spearheaded Wolves’ comeback before the former’s lunging tackle on Ayling earned him a red card.
Rodrigo Moreno would lift Leeds’ fourth goal beyond Jose Sa in injury time at the end of the second-half, with victory moving Javi Gracia’s side to 14th in the table heading into the March international break.
It was, without a doubt, a good weekend for Leeds but who were the winners and losers within Gracia’s squad?
Is Jack Harrison back to his best?
It’s probably premature to say this was Jack Harrison back to his best for Leeds, yet it was a good afternoon for a winger that’s been struggling for form.
His performance against Brighton had a goal, assist, own goal and many other up and down moments. Wolves was a lot more consistent from him, though.
He opened the scoring early on with a good finish and was involved in the build-up to Kristensen’s goal with a brilliant cross; the type of delivery you expect to see from a winger of Harrison’s ilk.
With two goals and two assists in four Premier League appearances under Gracia, Harrison is getting himself onto a good run of form.

Where does Rutter fit in at Leeds?
Patrick Bamford led the line well for Leeds at Molineux and was replaced by Rodrigo on 67 minutes.
Rodrigo obviously came on and scored Leeds’ fourth goal with what was his 13th in all competitions this season.
They offer the perfect mix of hold-up play and clinical finishing for Leeds, whether selected separately or together.
Quite where that leaves Georginio Rutter, though, remains to be seen. The club-record signing was on the bench at Wolves and not used.
If Rodrigo and Bamford can stay fit (and amongst the goals) between now and the end of the season, it’s going to be interesting to see what role Rutter is offered.
