Highlights from Leeds United 1-0 Bolton Wanderers: Watch Becchio's penalty

Tom Shaw

All in all, it was a drab and boring affair between Bolton Wanderers and Leeds United at Elland Road. A disjointed and disconnected Bolton Wanderers attack did no favors for a defense that was, on the whole, very good on the day. Leeds' goal came from the penalty spot as Tyrone Mears conceded the clubs' 8th penalty kick of the season.

The incident came after Bolton half-cleared the ball on a Leeds attack. Becchio squared the ball for forward Ross McCormack and the Scottish attacker turned away from the goal in order to get a better angle. Mears, rushing in from behind, went sliding into McCormack and taking his left foot out. There were really no two ways about it as it was a clear-cut penalty call.

Luciano Becchio stepped up to the spot to take it and sent Adam Bogdan the wrong way. The goal was Becchio's 15th league goal of the season and 18th in all competitions (I'm really not sure why the video commentator says it's 19).
