Millwall 0-3 Leeds United: Joel Piroe nets twice as Whites register second victory


Joel Piroe wheels away in celebration after scoring for Leeds United against Millwall
Joel Piroe has scored three goals in as many games for Leeds United since joining from Swansea City last month

Joel Piroe’s double helped Leeds United to a 3-0 victory at Millwall as the Whites registered their second win of the Championship season.

The Dutch striker rounded off a slick counter-attack to open the scoring in the 15th minute, finishing low across Lions keeper Bartosz Bialkowski and into the bottom right-hand corner.

The hosts claimed a foul on Kevin Nisbet in the build-up before Georginio Rutter swept upfield and exchanged passes with Wilfried Gnonto before feeding Piroe in the box.

Leeds had their second with 13 minutes left when Piroe tapped in from close range after Dan James stumbled in attempting to convert Rutter’s cut-back with the latter finishing from 15 yards to wrap it up late on.

More to follow.
