'Class act', 'Immense', 'Make him captain' – Leeds blown away by one player in draw v Bristol City
Leeds mounted a dramatic comeback at Elland Road today, salvaging a point when all hope seemed lost.
Paul Heckingbottom’s side went 2-0 down in front of their own fans at Elland Road and had to suffer boos ringing round the stadium at half time.
However, his men showed grit and purpose and came back to level the tie – and could have win it late on with a chance from Pontus Jansson.
However, a point a piece is probably fair after a dramatic afternoon of football, although it doesn’t help Leeds in their quest for a play-off spot.
The point takes them to up to 11th in the table but they’re eight points off the pace, with today’s opponents Bristol City sitting in sixth.
However, Leeds fans were blown away by the display of one of their players today, January signing Adam Forhsaw.
Even at 2-0 down he was the star of the show and proved that leeds were right to bring him to Elland Road.
Here are the best reactions from Leeds fans after his performance v Bristol City:
Make Forshaw captain! Different gravy compared to all our other midfielders, rarely gives the ball away, and looks more passionate than anyone! Class act. #LUFC

He is a really player Forshaw. We’ve needed a player like him for years. He looks miles above anyone else in centre mid
