Leeds United defender Joe Rodon was the latest recipient of the Boost Player of the Match award, after an "unreal" performance against Plymouth.

The Whites were looking to extend their unbeaten home run to nine, which stretches back to the season opener against Cardiff.

Leeds dominated in the first half, with Dan James getting the opener in the 21st minute, which was our 6000th league goal.

Seven minutes later, Joel Piroe doubled the lead with a cool finish, after he linked up neatly with Crysencio Summerville.

A tense second half saw Plymouth pull one back through Ben Waine, but Leeds held on to take the three points and reduce the gap to league leaders, Leicester who lost to Middlesbrough.


Plymouth provided tough competition after a good start to the season, having won four, drawn four in their first 15 games of the Championship season.

Standing in their way from getting anything more out of the game, was defender Joe Rodon who put in a Player of the Match performance.

Playing the full 90 minutes, Rodon touched the ball an impressive 119 times, making the most amount of successful passes (93) on the pitch, with a 91% accuracy.

Rodon also made the most amount of tackles (4), clearances (7), whilst winning 7 of the 9 duels he was involved in.

Such was Rodon's impressive performance, 32% of fans voted for the defender, ahead of goalscorer Dan James (26%), Archie Gray (13%) and Georginio (8%).
