Ben Davies 7: A little shaky in the first half but grew into the game. Executed a fine tackle on Caleb Ekuban when the Leeds man broke into the box.

Greg Cunningham 7: Steady display at left-back and did his fair share of attacking, forcing a save from the keeper in the second half.

Ben Pearson 8: Full of running and broke up a number of Leeds attacks, setting the ball rolling on PNE counter-attacks.

Paul Gallagher 7: Not at his best in the first half but within seven minutes of the re-start had scored a penalty and set up the second goal.

Billy Bodin 8: A strong display on the right-wing from the Wales international, with him hitting the post with a first-half shot and then winning the penalty.

Alan Browne 8: Hard working display, full of running, capped off by him scoring the third goal with a fine header. He was starman.

Tom Barkhuizen 6: Looks slightly off his game at the moment as a long season starts to catch up on him. Set up Bodin's chance which hit the post.

Sean Maguire 7: Moved joint top of the PNE scoring charts when he got on the end of Gallagher's cross to head the second goal.

Subs:

Josh Harrop 7: The fans' favourite replaced Gallagher in the 67th minute and added fresh energy. Played a big part in the third goal.

Callum Robinson 7: Joined the action 13 minutes from time and put in the cross for Browne's goal having initially started the move further back.

Daryl Horgan 6: An 84th minute sub for Bodin, he showed a couple of nice touches as PNE saw out the game.
