Kyle Bartley has been named in the English Football League team of the week, after Leeds beat Barnsley 2-1 at Elland Road on Saturday.
Centre-back Bartley opened the scoring against the Tykes, before Pablo Hernandez doubled his sides lead in the second-half, with Charlie Taylor turning into his own, before Garry Monk’s side secured all three points.
Bartley and defensive partner Pontus Jansson, who are on loan from Swansea and Torino respectively, were solid at the back as the Yorkshire club recorded their fifth win in six games.
