Garry Monk felt Leeds didn’t perform at their best on Saturday afternoon, but hailed the supporters for driving them to a 2-0 victory over Burton Albion at Elland Road.
Striker Chris Wood converted from the penalty spot late into the second-half, when substitute Souleymane Doukara drew a foul from Burton defender Ben Turner.
Doukara then made sure of all the three points, when he scored into stoppage time, as Leeds go ninth, with 15 points, one point off a play-off place.
There were 24,220 fans in attendance at the iconic stadium, as Monk’s side are now unbeaten in their last five games in all competitions on home soil.
Here is the club’s official Twitter posting Monk’s reaction to the win v Burton:
The Yorkshire club have picked up three wins in one week, following their 1-0 win against Wolves last Saturday and their EFL Cup triumph against Norwich on Tuesday night.
Additionally, the White have also secured back-to-back clean sheets, with centre-back duo, Pontus Jansson and Kyle Bartley, once again impressing at the heart of the club’s defence.
Monk’s side now travel to Carrow Road to take on Alex Neil’s Norwich, who were thumped 5-0 at Brighton on Saturday afternoon.
