Leeds survive Carabao Cup scare with late surge against Crewe

Three late goals saved Leeds United from suffering a shock result against Crewe Alexandra in the Carabao Cup on Tuesday night.

In front of a sold-out Elland Road, Leeds scored three goals in the last eleven minutes to reach the third-round.

Kalvin Phillips broke the deadlock against a stubborn Crewe outfit.

Jack Harrison then scored twice, with a lovely dinked finish, before slotting past the keeper in added time.

Marcelo Bielsa's side had 28 shots in the match, and the Argentine manager was relieved to get a result.

"It took a long time to score," Bielsa said. "We missed a lot of chances in a very contested game. Even though [Crewe] created little, they disputed everything.

"Adam Forshaw is very well prepared. He's sacrificed a lot in the last two months. If he keeps healthy and progressively acquires the competition's rhythm he has all the virtues to shine."
