But it was party time once again on firework night for Leeds, as they roared back to win it with five minutes to go

The Yorkshire side hosted the Cherries at Elland Road and were in fine spirits after their 2-1 victory over Liverpool last time out.

But the first 45 minutes made their victory at Anfield feel like it was a long while ago, as the Leeds players were given an uncomfortable reception by their home fans as they went down the tunnel.

Leeds had gone in front thanks to a third minute spot-kick from Rodrigo after Crysencio Summerville was brought down in the box.

But soon the visitors were 2-1 up with just 20 minutes on the clock as Marcus Tavernier and Philip Billing both netted to put the Cherries ahead.

Boos rang out around Elland Road once again as Dominic Solanke scored just after the restart, putting the pressure back on Leeds boss Marsch.

Thankfully for the American coach, Leeds soon sprung back into life, as Sam Greenwood brought them back level with a special left-footed effort from outside the box.

“That’s Greenwood’s first of the season,” talkSPORT’s Simon Humphreys said live from Leeds. “The keeper had no chance there.”

Liam Cooper then headed his side level, and then, with just five minutes to go, up rose none other than Anfield hero Summerville.

Elland Road went into meltdown as the winger burst through on goal from a counter-attack and coolly fired past Bournemouth goalkeeper Mark Travers.

“Absolute bedlam here!” Humphreys said on talkSPORT. “Summerville, the hero at Anfield last week, has slotted home!”

Leeds win takes them up to 12th in the league, leap-frogging over the Cherries who’ve suffered four straight defeats.
