Leeds fans react on Twitter to Bartley display v Wolves

By Amir Mir

Kyle Bartley helped Leeds keep a clean sheet in their 1-0 win against Wolves on Saturday afternoon, and fans on Twitter urged the club to sign the defender permanently.

The 25-year-old centre-back, who is on-loan from Premier League side Swansea, played the full 90 minutes at Molineux.

Striker Kemar Roofe netted his first goal for the club, when he converted Hadi Sacko’s cross midway through the second-half.

The goal helped Garry Monk’s side secure the three points, and the win takes them to tenth in the Championship, with 20 points – three off a play-off place.

Supporters once again lauded the performance of the stand-in captain, but are hoping that he signs a permanent contract with the club in January.

Fans praised the partnership Bartley has developed with fellow teammate Pontus Jansson, who is also on loan from Italian side Torino.

Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:

Bartley has played 14 Championship game for the Yorkshire outfit this term, helping them keep four clean sheets, and has scored two goals and provided one assist.

The Whites turn their attention to the EFL Cup on Tuesday night next, when fellow Championship rivals Norwich visit Elland Road.

Leeds then host Burton Albion next Saturday in the Championship and will be looking to push on for a spot in the play-off places.
