Leeds fans react emotionally on Twitter to draw against Norwich
By Harvey Byrne
Leeds fans on Twitter were left disappointed after their club could only manage a 3-3 draw against 10-man Norwich at Elland Road on Saturday.
The Canaries took a 3-0 lead at the famous ground and it looked as though the Yorkshire giants may suffer an even worse result this weekend.
However, a goal from Chris Wood just before half time seemed to inspire the rest of the team and Kyle Bartley and Pablo Hernandez ensured their side earned a point.
But, a draw looks as though it won’t be enough for Garry Monk’s seventh placed team with Fulham in sixth three points ahead with a 13 goal better goal difference with just one game left.
It is fair to say Monk’s team have managed to surpass pre-season expectations this campaign, but after sitting in the play-offs from November until a 1-0 defeat suffered against Wolves earlier this month it has been a disappointing end.

Leeds’ end of season form has ultimately stopped them from achieving a top six finish with just one victory coming from their last seven league matches.
However, the supporters will now be hoping the club can manage to keep hold of stars such as Chris Wood and Pontus Jansson alongside manager Garry Monk.
