Alfonso Pedraza sends Twitter message to Leeds fans ahead of Fulham clash
By Will Butcher
Alfonso Pedraza has called on his Leeds teammates to maintain their fight for Premier League promotion against Fulham on Tuesday night.
Garry Monk’s side travel to west London to face Slavisa Jokanovic’s Cottagers, with the chance to go third in the Championship table if they secure three points.
Posting on his personal Twitter account, 20-year-old winger Pedraza is desperate to keep “fighting” to achieve Leeds’ “dreams” this season as they remain in fourth place.

Pedraza showed Leeds fans what he is really capable of last time out, as he came off the bench to star in the 3-1 away win against Birmingham City.
The on-loan winger scored the Yorkshire giants’ third goal, after being played in by fellow Spaniard Pablo Hernandez late on against Gianfranco Zola’s Blues on Friday night.

The Spain Under-21 international fired a shot past Tomasz Kuszczak into the bottom corner, after Championship top scorer Chris Wood had scored his 24th and 25th goals of the season.
Fans are desperate to see Pedraza start against Fulham on Tuesday night, as Monk looks to secure a fourth win in five league games and move even closer to the Championship’s top two.
A place in the starting line-up for Pedraza would see him start just his second game for Leeds, as they look to go one better than the reverse fixture that finished as a draw back in August.
