Posting on his personal Twitter account on Sunday, Sacko expressed his delight at the triumph and revealed his focus is now on Leeds EFL Cup quarter-finals clash against Liverpool on Tuesday.

Leeds were two goals to the good at half time, after top scorer Chris Wood and versatile attacker Souleymane Doukara found the back of the net.

With Rotherham down to 10 men following a red card to striker Peter Odemwingie, the game seemed to be out of sight for Garry Monk’s men.

However, a late onslaught from Kenny Jackett’s side saw Richard Wood grab a goal to give Monk’s side a nervy last 10 minutes.

Sacko and company held on to leapfrog Huddersfield into fifth place in the Championship, as Leeds fans begin to dream of a Premier League return.
