Garry Monk delivers Twitter message to Leeds fans after draw against Ipswich

By Harvey Byrne

Garry Monk paid testament to the “hard-fought” point his side won against Ipswich in their 1-1 draw on Saturday afternoon.

The Yorkshire giants battled to the stalemate with a Stuart Dallas goal cancelling out a Freddie Sears header within the first 10 minutes.

Posting on his personal Twitter account, Monk shared to fans that the side had ultimately put a point on the board as they aim to return to the Premier League.

The draw has seen Leeds remain in fifth place in the Championship table and seventh placed Norwich’s defeat against Burton has meant that they are now seven points clear of those outside of the play-offs.

Monk and his team have just 13 matches left in this campaign and their next fixture puts them up against Sheffield Wednesday, who are level on points and goal difference after their 2-1 win against Nottingham Forest on Saturday.

The Owls also have a game in hand over Leeds and any result could prove vital in the race for the top six at this late stage of the season.

Both clubs have a good history behind them, but neither have played in the top flight for a number of years now with Leeds being the most recent in 2004.
