The Yorkshire giants earned their victory at home with goals coming from Kemar Roofe, Pablo Hernandez and Souleymane Doukara against Simon Grayson’s men.

The players on the pitch were instrumental in earning the famous club a win and a clean sheet.

However, Monk also paid tribute to the 31,851 crowd on his personal Twitter account after the match.

Leeds have always been known for their large and boisterous crowd and it may have played a part in helping the club mark a very impressive home record this season.
