Leeds United   2 - 1   Exeter

Jermaine Beckford scored twice, including a late header two minutes from time, as Leeds beat 10-man Exeter.

Beckford had missed two good chances before he coolly opened the scoring when left-back Ben Parker set him up for a low shot into the bottom corner.

Beckford headed against the bar, before former Leeds trainee Barry Corr saw red for elbowing new signing Michael Doyle.

But Alex Russell fired Exeter level, only for Robert Snodgrass and Jason Crowe to set up Beckford's late winner.


Leeds manager Simon Grayson told BBC Radio Leeds:

"It's very important to start the season in a positive manner. There has been some strange results today. It's all about winning the game on the opening day.

"I thought we started really brightly and could have put the game to bed within 30 minutes.

"Overall it was a half-decent performance - I feel there is more to come from us in certain areas of the pitch."
