Hadi Sacko delivers excited Instagram verdict on Leeds win v Burton

By Alex Stevens

Leeds star Hadi Sacko posted a celebratory message on Instagram following his team’s hard-fought 2-0 win against Burton in the Championship.

Chris Wood put the Whites 1-0 up in the 83rd minute but fans had to endure a nervy end to the match as Burton searched for an equaliser.

Sacko was taken off in the 95th minute as manager Garry Monk tried to run the clock down, but substitute Souleymane Doukara put fans out of their misery with a second goal in the 96th minute, securing the valuable three points.

Sacko celebrated Leeds’ late goal, making reference to the 91st-minute goal Wigan scored to force a draw in their Championship game on October 18.

Leeds had taken the lead against Wigan after Chris Wood converted a Sacko cross, but Garry Monk’s side let two points slip when Shaun MacDonald grabbed a stoppage-time equaliser.
