Pep Clotet believes the relationship between Leeds supporters and players has grown over the last few weeks.

Garry Monk’s side have registered three league wins on the bounce, including an impressive 3-2 victory at promotion chasing Norwich in their last fixture.

These results have helped the Yorkshire club secure a place in the top six of the Championship table after 16 games.

Spaniard Clotet, who assists former Premier League manager Monk in the dugout, explained how the atmosphere has changed at the club over the last few weeks.

“The relationship we now have with the team and the fans is really good, because we do feel we are fighting and working together for our own benefit,” Clotet told the club’s official website.

“The game is about being better than the opposition and the fans always remind us of that, it is good to have the mentality where the fans always want you and encourage you to do more.”

The Whites have recorded 26 points from their 16 games in the league and have also progressed through to the quarter-final stages of the EFL Cup.

After the international break Monk’s side will host league leaders Newcastle in a tricky fixture with a sell-out crowd expected at Elland Road.
