Leeds fans took to Twitter on Tuesday evening to air their dismay at striker Souleymane Doukara starting in the EFL Cup clash against Norwich at Elland Road.
The 25-year-old striker has made just four appearances under Garry Monk this season, remaining goalless.
However, he has been named in the Leeds attack which is set to face Norwich in the EFL Cup with Monk making eight changes to his line-up from the weekend’s 1-0 victory over Wolves.

Fans were not impressed on social media with Doukara’s inclusion, with many believing they were looking to concede the tie.
Here are a selection of their messages on Twitter:
Take it we're not going for the cup. Mowatt, Vieira, Grimes, Doukara, Cooper ?? #lufc

Fans will now be hoping that their frige players will feel motivated to impress Monk against Norwich with the EFL Cup fifth round awaiting the winners of the fixture.
Leeds have already beaten Fleetwood, Luton and Blackburn to get this far, while Norwich have racked up victories against Coventry and Premier League side Everton.
The two Championship clubs will face each other for the first time in the league after the weekend’s round of fixtures on November 5.
In other Leeds team news, this winger is on course to return for the Whites on Saturday.
