Garry Monk sends message to Leeds fans ahead of QPR clash, states what the game will show
By Amir Mir
Leeds manager Garry Monk has stated that the QPR game on Saturday afternoon will show how far the club has progressed this season.
Former Premier League boss Monk took charge of the Elland Road outfit in the summer and the clash against the Hoops in August was his first match in charge of the club.
During that game, his side were beaten 3-0 at Loftus Road, but since then his team have moved up the table dramatically.
The Whites have challenged for promotion to the Premier League for the majority of the campaign, while their opponents sacked manager Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink in November.
Ahead of the game against the London-based club which is now managed by Ian Holloway, Monk had this message for the supporters.

“Seven months on from our first competitive game in charge of Leeds,” Monk wrote on his personal Twitter account. “Tomorrow we face QPR again and it’s a good chance to show our progress.”

It took Monk four games to win his first match with Leeds and that was against their neighbours Sheffield Wednesday away from home.
Since then, Monk and his team have not looked back as they have been one of the standout teams in the division this term.
Furthermore, they have a strong record in front of their own supporters, losing only on four occasions at Elland Road.
Monk’s side have recorded seven points from their last three matches, including a 1-0 win against promotion rivals Sheffield Wednesday.
The Whites fans will be hoping to have their star man Chris Wood back in action after he missed the 1-1 draw at Fulham on Tuesday night.
