Leeds duo named in Championship team of the month for September, including ‘top class’ attacker.
Leeds United have had two players named in the latest Sky Bet Championship team of the month for September.
As per ratings taken from Who Scored, Georginio Rutter and Sam Byram have been recognised for their performances last month to take a place in the XI.
At 7.08, Byram is actually the lowest rating in the team but there was not a better left-back than him in September, which earned him his spot.
Rutter, meanwhile, enjoyed his best month in a Leeds shirt, receiving an average rating of 7.38 for his performances across the five matches.
Leeds fans will certainly not be arguing at the inclusion of either player, with both having been among the Whites’ best performers, particularly in matches against Millwall and Watford.

Byram only started in three of the five matches last month, with injury ruling him out against Sheffield Wednesday, and Daniel Farke opting to rest him at Hull City.
Nevertheless, Byram played a key role in two of Leeds’ four clean sheets, while also netting a superb header in the 3-0 win over Watford.
In contrast, Rutter started all five of Leeds’ games, scoring one goal and providing two assists, including a sublime one for Jaidon Anthony’s first goal for the club.
His performance against Watford prompted manager Farke to label him as ‘top-class’ after the game, with his incredible dribbling ability wowing the Elland Road crowd.
Hopefully both can continue to stay fit as their importance to the team grows, starting with tonight’s match against QPR.
