Leeds United fans are delighted with Caleb Ekuban’s performance in the 2-0 Championship win against Yorkshire rivals Barnsley at Oakwell.
Samuel Saiz put the Whites ahead with a low drive midway through the first half and Ezgjan Alioski doubled their lead with a brilliant curling effort on the stroke of half-time, but it was a dominant team performance for Thomas Christiansen’s side.
Ekuban looked particular impressive leading the Leeds attack and fans reacted positively to his performance via Twitter.
Here are some of the best tweets from Leeds fans following the game:

Ekuban is EXACTLY what we've been missing up front. Quick, powerful, works the centre halves. Glorious. #lufc

Ekuban is what we've been missing since Wood left. Selfless running and grafting. Creating space for the team and hustling defenders. Simple really #lufc

The three points is extremely welcome for Leeds after a poor run, and it means that they’ve now picked up six points from a possible nine in the past week.
The loss to Wolves at Molineux would have been expected so Leeds fans will be delighted to see their side stop the rot and solidify their spot in the Championship.
The three points lifts them up to eighth in the league although their rivals have a game in a hand.
