Monk and his coaching staff were present at an ‘Evening with…’ event on Tuesday night with supporters and that showed how close the Yorkshire club have come this season.

Monk is only experiencing his second spell as a manager during his career after a previous spell with Swansea in the Premier League.
The Leeds boss is now trying to help his current side get to the top-flight and they have exceeded all pre-season expectations.
They have been in the top six for the majority of the season and Monk has managed to bring a winning mentality to their squad.
The Whites’ solid home form has played a massive role and 27-goal hero Chris Wood continues to impress in attack.
