Willy Gnonto won Player of the Match for Tuesday night's win over Swansea, with an impressive 69% of the fans' vote.

The Italian international scored a brace at the Stadium, as Leeds defeated the Swans 4-0 in South Wales.

Leeds dominated the game from start to finish, scoring after just 8 minutes, when Crysencio Summerville put the ball in the back of the net, before Joel Piroe doubled the lead just two minutes later.

With Swansea having no answer to the Whites' attack, Archie Gray chipped a beautiful ball into the path of Willy Gnonto, unleashing him on a run that would see him dodge and defender and fire into the bottom right corner.

3-0 at the break, Gnonto would close out the game in the 72nd minute, when Summerville threaded a pass through to the forward, who would race beyond the defenders and fire it past Rushworth.

Gnonto is surely in with a shout for February's Player of the Month award, having scored four in four games, having also scored against Bristol City and Plymouth, whilst also turning provider for Piroe's goal against Swansea.

Voting was pretty conclusive after the clash in South Wales, as Gnonto picked up 69% of the votes, followed by Archie Gray with 8% and Ilia Gruev also with 8%.
