David Seaman reacts on Twitter to Leeds win over Brighton
By Amir Mir
David Seaman has revealed that Leeds beating Brighton 2-0 on Saturday evening at Elland Road “cheered him up”.
Garry Monk guided his team to an impressive three points against a side that is currently occupying the automatic places.
Chris Wood scored a brace in the second half to take his goal tally for the Championship season to 24 – currently the highest in the second division.
The New Zealand international is now on course to score an impressive 30 league during this campaign.
Yorkshire-born Seaman, who played as a goalkeeper for the Whites and Arsenal, had this to say about the club who are looking to end a 13-year absence from the Premier League.

After that win against Chris Hughton’s side, Leeds moved into fourth in the Championship table where they are on 69 points from 38 matches.
Over the course of the season, they have recorded 21 wins, six draw and suffered 11 defeats along the way.
One positive for Monk is that compared with those teams currently sitting in the play-off positions, his side have a significantly better goal difference than their rivals.
Aside from the Whites, fifth-placed Reading were the only other team to pick up a win from those teams sitting in the top six.
The Royal’s beat Sheffield Wednesday, Huddersfield were thrashed at relegation strugglers Bristol City, while leaders Newcastle were held to a stalemate against Birmingham.
