'A blinder', 'Stunning' - Leeds fans rave over surprise star in Hull clash
Leeds United fans have taken to social media to rave over the performance of goalkeeper Felix Wiedwald during the 0-0 draw away to Hull City.
The Whites travelled to the east coast looking to put an end to a poor run of form, which had seen them fail to pick up a victory in any of their last five games in all competitions.
In what was a tightly fought match, neither Leeds nor Hull could establish dominance at the KCOM Stadium, with clear cut chances at a premium for both sides.
As such it was the performance of the man between the sticks which had the Leeds fans reacting for all the right reasons, with Wiedwald pulling off a number of important saves, including on his line in injury time, to keep Christiansen’s men in the game and turning out a surprise star performance.
Here, Football Insider has rounded up a selection of the supporters’ best tweets:

I’m not saying we’ve gone off the rails but *Felix Wiedwald* has been our most consistent, reliable player for some time now. Let that sink in. #lufc

The German goalkeeper, a summer signing from Werder Bremen, has been the club’s regular first choice shot stopper this season but has come under fire from the Leeds fans for some unconvincing displays, which saw him axed in favour of Andy Lonergan earlier in the campaign.
He has a total of 24 appearances under his belt for the Whites, keeping a clean sheet in 10 of those outings.
