Leeds fans furious on Twitter following defeat v Notts Forest
By Harvey Byrne
Leeds fans were furious on Twitter following the club’s 3-1 defeat against Nottingham Forest in the Championship on Saturday.
The Yorkshire giants suffered a third league defeat in five games at the City Ground after losing to Birmingham and QPR earlier in the new season.
Pajtim Kasami and Damien Perquis scored their first goals for Forest before Kalvin Phillips brought Leeds hope in the last 10 minutes. It wasn’t to be though and Oliver Burke wrapped up the three points for Forest in stoppage time.
The Leeds supporters are angry at the manner of the defeat and especially with the way the side defends set pieces.
Here are a selection of their messages on Twitter:

Manager Garry Monk took over at Leeds after being relieved from his duties at Swansea last season.
However, the inexperienced manager hasn’t got off to the best of starts at the club, with only one league win in his opening five games. It leaves the Yorkshire club near the bottom of the Championship, in 21st place.
Leeds haven’t experienced football in England’s top-flight since being relegated in 2004 and will have to improve if they want to threaten the play-off places this season.
