Two goals from Ramon Nunez helped Leeds United overcome Doncaster Rovers to progress to the third round of the League Cup. 

Simon Grayson made six changes to the side that drew away to West Ham United on Sunday and that decision made for some extremely poor football at The Keepmoat.

Donny, who had made far fewer changes from the side they fielded at the weekend took the lead after just two minutes and dominated almost totally for the first half hour as Leeds took their time to settle into the game.

But Ramon Nunez levelled things up with an excellent strike from the edge of the box to restore parity 15 minutes before the break.

The poor football on show was made all the more painful by some attention-seeking idiot in the Donny end mercilessly beating away on a drum. Whether his attempts to create an atmosphere in the home end were successful or not was hard to tell because Donny’s home support was almost as pathetic as the following they took to Wembley back in 2008.

As the game grinded towards full-time, Ramon Nunez saved us the torture of another 30 minutes with the Tinpot drummer boy by netting his fifth goal of the season and sending Leeds United into the third round.

Overall, a pretty dire performance from The Whites, but considering the amount of changes made the result was a good one. There’s no denying however that what seperated two extremely poor sides here was an Honduran sensation demanding his place in Simon Grayson’s first team.
