Solly's finish was initially given as a Jack Harrison own goal.

Solly March has been awarded our second goal in Saturday’s draw against Leeds United after a decision was made on Tuesday by the Premier League’s Goal Accreditation Panel. 

Following good work on the left from Kaoru Mitoma, Solly scrambled the ball home from two yards out at Elland Road - but it was initially given as an own goal after Jack Harrison looked as if he’d skewed a clearance into his own net.

However the club put a request into the Premier League to review the decision and a telling camera angle from behind the Leeds goal showed Solly managed to poke his left foot between Harrison’s legs and put us into the lead during the second half.  

Solly has now scored six goals in the Premier League this season – the best haul of his top-flight career with over two months of the campaign still remaining.
