TRANSCRIPT: DUCKENFIELD: "Manchester City playing from right to left began by showing the kind of form that has taken them away from the foot of the table. Tommy Hutchison creating the first of several chances for Steve MacKenzie.
"The Leeds defence was under considerable pressure, players conceding a series of corners, but John Lukic in the Leeds goal was in impressive form, sitting on the ground to make another save from MacKenzie. Lukic showed more conventional ability when Phil Boyer's pass reached Kevin Reeves in the penalty area.
"Leeds Argentine player Alex Sabella was closely marked and the City goal was threatened only by a handful of free kicks, well covered by defenders.
"But the pace of the game wasn't sustained and in the second half even MacKenzie was restricted to shooting from long-range at the reliable Lukic.
"A drew seemed the most likely result until a minute from time when City got the reward their earlier play merited. Lukic beaten by Reeves' half volley. Manchester City-one, Leeds United-nil."
