Ben White: The clean sheet was important

White on Reading win.

Leeds United defender Ben White spoke to the LUTV following Saturday’s Sky Bet Championship win over Reading.

White played a big part in the victory as the Whites secured back to back wins at Elland Road, thanks to a second half Pablo Hernandez strike.

The Brighton loan man spoke about having to move to midfield in the match following Kalvin Phillips' injury and was delighted to come away with the three points and clean sheet.

 “We work on it in training, we do drills where I step into midfield, so for me to slot in there now is much easier," said White.

“The clean sheet was important, we had a lot of chances and we could’ve scored more goals, but the three points is all that matters.

“Ultimately it’s all about points at this stage of the season, if we play bad every week but we get three points it’s not too bad.

“For the goal, it was hard for Pablo to get it under control, but he has done brilliantly, as he always does."

White also looked ahead to Wednesday's Sky Bet Championship clash with Middlesbrough at the Riverside Stadium.

He said: “We know every Championship game is tough.

"Middlesbrough are fighting to stay up, so it will be a hard game."
