Leeds United full back Stuart Dallas spoke to LUTV following Sunday’s victory over Birmingham City.

The Whites edged a nine goal thriller at St Andrew’s Trillion Trophy Stadium, defeating the Blues 5-4 thanks to a 95th minute own goal.

Dallas netted Leeds’ fourth goal of the game and he gave his assessment of the game and praised the character of the group to get a late winner, despite suffering a setback just minutes earlier.

“We came here to win the game, it doesn’t matter how we have done it, but we have done it,” said Dallas.

“There were a lot of emotions, it was a rollercoaster, we were two-nil up and were cruising at that stage, but the momentum swung and they got themselves back into it, the crowd got behind them and we started to get sloppy.

“From our point of view we are disappointed we conceded four goals, we’re delighted we scored five- but there are a lot of things we can work on of course.

“I think the result speaks volumes about the group of players we have, we went 4-3 up going into added time, but it shows if you have a lapse of concentration and you are not on it, you get punished.

“Again, though, we have shown guts, determination, bravery and we’ve gone up the other end of the pitch and scored and I think it was what we deserved.

“If it had finished 4-4, we would have been devastated, but thankfully we were able to get the winner.

“We’ve answered a few questions, a lot of people were doubting us going into this game, but we’ve shown we are more than capable of coming to places like this and getting the three points and now we move on to West Brom.”
