Leeds fans react on Twitter to Jansson display v Burton

By Amir Mir

Pontus Jansson helped Leeds beat Burton Albion 2-0 at Elland Road on Saturday afternoon- and fans on Twitter praised his performance.

Centre-back Jansson played the full 90 minutes, as the Yorkshire club kept their second consecutive clean sheet.

Striker Chris Wood converted from the penalty spot late into the second-half, when substitute Souleymane Doukara drew a foul from Burton defender Ben Turner.

Doukara then made sure of all the three points, when he scored into stoppage time, as Leeds go ninth, with 15 points, one point off a play-off place.

Nigel Clough’s men had an astonishing 19 shots on goal, but were only able to get two shots on target throughout the game, as they failed to win on the road for the eighth time this season.
