Grayson pleased as Leeds make it three wins on the bounce

Leeds boss Simon Grayson was delighted as the Whites secured their third victory in a row, coming from behind for a 2-1 win over Swansea. Grayson admits Leeds did things the hard way by going behind, but is pleased that they continued their winning streak.

He said: "That's three wins in a row, which is pleasing. We are making a habit of having to come from behind and I like us to win games from the front, but if the players want to put me through the mill every week and we keep on winning, so be it.

"We started the game well enough and they went ahead through a mistake.

"Swansea are a good footballing team who pass the ball with pace and quality so we knew they would be a hard team to beat.

"In the first half we tried to force the issue too much and needed to pass the ball better. We tried to bring our flair players into the game, which we did in the second half.

"We showed our resilience again and Shane Higgs made some good saves for us. He came in because Kasper Schmeichel has a foot injury which has worsened.

"Kasper will miss the games against Barnsley and Doncaster next week and then we will assess him again.

"Luciano Becchio probably caught their goalkeeper in a challenge but I didn't think he meant it. Their keeper reacted by throwing the ball at him and I have seen people sent off for that but I thought the referee gave the right decision by showing the two players a yellow card."
