Millwall manager Gary Rowett felt Leeds United felt the benefit of having the weekend off following their 3-2 comeback win at Elland Road. 

Hvaing been dumped out of the FA Cup by Arsenal in the Third Round, Marcelo Bielsa's men had a full ten days between fixtures, while the Lions faced Sheffield United in the Fourth Round at the weekend. 

Rowett, whose side took a two goal lead in the first half, felt the rest aided the Whites and admitted their quality shone through as a Patrick Bamford brace and a Pablo Hernandez strike sealed an unlikley comeback after Shaun Hutchinson and Jed Wallace's first half efforts. 

"I'm disappointed, but overall we've been given a lesson," he said.

"They were thoroughly deserved winners.

"Ten days without a game has probably benefitted Leeds which you saw with the running and energy.

"We knew this was a tough place to come. To get in at half-time 2-0 up, we didn't perform well enough after that.

"We conceded a poor goal just after half-time and then they get a deflection for the second and their third, we stand off the crosser.

"We created some opportunities in the game but we didn't pass the ball enough today."

Defeat means the Lions slipped to ninth, three points adrift of the top six.

They travel to Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday, who themselves are looking to get back in the play-off hunt.
