Andros off to a flyer

Andros Townsend set-up a dramatic late winner on his debut for Leeds United.

Andros Townsend set-up a dramatic late winner on his debut for Leeds United.

The flying winger has joined the Elland Road side on loan for the rest of the season.

And he made quite an impression in front of his new home fans as Leeds came from behind to beat Burnley 2-1 in the Championship on Monday.

Andros was a constant threat to Burnley - so much so, that three players received yellow cards for fouls on him.

Burnley, down to 10 men from the half-hour mark when Kieran Trippier was sent off, led through Charlie Austin's goal when an own goal with two minutes remaining levelled it.

Andros then drilled in a shot in the final minute of added time, keeper Lee Grant spilled it and Ross McCormack tapped home.

"He's an exciting talent," said Leeds boss Simon Grayson.

"He's two-footed, he can drive up the pitch, and we were delighted with his effort. He'll only get better from being with us."
