Kemar Roofe posted a celebratory message on Twitter after his first goal for the club secured three points for Garry Monk’s side against Wolves at Molineux.
Roofe scored in the 70th minute of the game after an assist from Hadi Sacko, and it’s his first in a Leeds shirt in 16 appearances across all competitions.
Leeds held on for the three points to leave them 10th in the Championship, just three points outside the play-off places.
Roofe was delighted with his goal after putting up with criticism from some supporters prior to the Wolves game, and posted this message on his personal Twitter account.
Massive result and team performance today, putting us 3 points off play offs. Great feeling. 💪💃

Roofe signed for Leeds in the summer from Oxford United for a fee close to £3million and he will be hoping he can start repaying that after scoring his breakthrough goal.
His goal couldn’t have come at a better time for the 23-year-old, as certain sections of the Leeds support were calling for him to be dropped prior to the Wolves game.
The former West Brom youth player has made just seven starts this season, after winning the League Two Player of the Year award last season after scoring a superb 26 goals from 49 games.
Roofe will now be hoping his goal earns him a regular place in the Leeds first team and a start against Burton in their next Championship game on Saturday.
