Pep Clotet has claimed the Leeds coaching staff are “proud” of the team’s progress this season even though they are in the bottom half of the Championship.

The Elland Road assistant manager took to his personal Twitter account on Thursday afternoon to give his verdict ahead of the team’s trip to Wolves on Saturday.

Leeds travel to Molineux seeking their first win in three matches after taking a single point from their last two matches.

The Yorkshire giants followed up their defeat to Derby last  Saturday with a 1-1 draw against Wigan on Tuesday night.

The results mean Leeds have dropped down to 13th in the table after a string of impressive results, including four wins in five league matches, before the international break.

“We’re proud of our progress but are keen to continue putting in the effort and getting better, as we look to take steps forward,” said Clotet on Twitter.

Leeds fans reacted angrily to Monk’s use of substitutes against the Championship strugglers against Wigan at Elland Road after he took off attacking trio Chris Wood, Hadi Sacko and Pablo Hernandez when his team were a goal ahead.

Fans took to social media to lambast Monk for replacing Sacko with Matt Grimes after 66 minutes, Hernandez with Alex Mowatt after 74 and Wood with Marcus Antonsson with five minutes remaining.
