Leeds have finally experienced what the Northern Ireland manager Lawrie Sanchez termed "the David Healy phenomenon". The Ulsterman's sixth goal in a week was one of immeasurable importance, a last-minute winner that lifted Leeds off the foot of the Championship and, precarious though their position remains, they can approach the relegation run-in with renewed optimism.
His back-post header, following a deep cross from Eddie Lewis, secured a ninth Leeds goal of the season, to accompany the nine he has mustered for Northern Ireland. That it has taken Healy 39 domestic games to reach that tally - compared with an average of a goal every 57 minutes for his country - shows the disparity between his club and international form.
"I was going to say to him 'Could you put a Northern Ireland shirt beneath your Leeds shirt'," grinned Dennis Wise. When Healy's brace defeated Sweden in Belfast on Wednesday, the Leeds manager was serenaded with "Are you watching, Dennis Wise?" He said: "I took some stick from 14,000 Northern Ireland fans thanks to Mr [Keith] Gillespie saying I play him on the right-hand side. I don't. I think he confused me with previous managers."
