Garry Monk sends Twitter message to Leeds fans ahead of crucial Newcastle clash

By Harvey Byrne

Manager Garry Monk posted on Twitter on Thursday afternoon that it is now key that Leeds continue what they’ve been doing all season.

The Yorkshire giants are currently preparing themselves for a crucial clash at St. James’ Park where they will take on the second placed side on Friday evening.

Leeds are performing well in the Championship themselves sat in fifth place with five points separating them from seventh with just five matches of the season left.

Now, Monk has called on his personal Twitter account for his team to continue to take it one game at a time, while sticking to what has brought them success already.

Leeds last played in the Premier League in 2004 where they were relegated in 19th place under then caretaker boss Eddie Gray.

The prestigious English club have since dropped down to League One for three seasons, but they will now be hoping the dark days are behind them and that they can achieve a return to the top-flight.

The Yorkshire club last finished in the Championship play-offs in 2005, but they will be hoping for better results this time around after losing 3-0 against Watford in the final at the Millennium Stadium.
