Daniel Farke impressed with Leeds’ ruthlessness

Leeds boss Daniel Farke praised his team’s “ice-cold” finishing in their 3-1 victory over Swansea at Elland Road.

Leeds maintained their position in the Championship automatic-promotion race with goals from Joel Piroe and Dan James, both scoring against their former club, and another clinical effort from Georginio Rutter. Despite falling behind to Jamie Paterson’s excellent finish within the first minute, Daniel Farke’s team responded emphatically, securing their seventh win in the last nine league matches.

Farke said: “Efficiency is a topic we always speak about. But the way we scored these three goals was outstanding.

“I can’t criticise my offensive players today too much in terms of their performance and how they created the chances and the way they scored the three goals. It was great today.

“My gut feeling is we can still improve our effectiveness, but we also had some iced-cold finishes today.”

Leeds extended their unbeaten home league run to nine games this season. Daniel Farke praised all three of his goalscorers for their excellent technique in converting their chances.

“When I think about the finish of Joel Piroe. Also Georginio’s fantastic second goal, also Dan James’ with his weaker left foot. It was a perfect first touch at high speed and perfect finish.” the former Norwich boss added.

“We’re on the right path in many ways, but it’s also not the time to feel too comfortable and too proud of ourselves.

Daniel Farke concluded: “The next difficult opponent already awaits on Saturday (Middlesbrough at Elland Road). We have to make sure we are ready again and finish in the same manner, if not better.”

Swansea maintains their 18th position in the table, holding a seven-point lead over the bottom three. They secured just one victory in their last seven league matches.
