Leeds fans react on Twitter as Barrow is omitted from squad to face QPR
By Will Butcher
Leeds fans are in agreement with Garry Monk on Twitter after he decided to leave out on-loan winger Modou Barrow from his squad to face QPR.
Monk, 38, has decided to leave out the 24-year-old winger from his squad of 18 players as Barrow struggles to have an impact in Yorkshire since signing on January deadline day.
Leeds announced the chosen side on their official Twitter account, as former Swansea boss Monk makes four changes to his side.

Luke Ayling, Pablo Hernandez, Chris Wood and Ronaldo Vieira all come into the side in place of Charlie Taylor, Souleymane Doukara, Hadi Sacko and Kalvin Phillips.
But Gambia international Barrow misses out despite making a substitute appearance during Tuesday night’s 1-1 draw against Fulham.

Leeds fans have reacted on Twitter to the Gambia international’s omission, with the majority of fans considering Monk’s decision to overlook Barrow as a good one.
However, some questioned the move to bring him to Elland Road in January, with him yet to make a single start in Leeds colours.
Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:
barrow looked awful the other night when he came on against Fulham! Happy with his lineup really happy

Looks like I got my wish with Barrow, he cost us Tuesday and not in the squad today

Sacko has the much bigger heart, Barrow is disinterested. Awful when he came on at Fulham.

strange loaning barrow if he can't get in the squad!

Making just four substitute appearances this season, Barrow has failed to live up to expectations after impressing in the Premier League with Swansea.
A win without Barrow could see Leeds climb into third place, if Huddersfield lose to Brentford on Saturday afternoon.
