Pontus Jansson has been selected in the Leeds line-up against Barnsley after fears that he may miss the tie through injury – and fans have shared their delight on Twitter.

The 25-year-old defender had been taken off against Bristol City on Tuesday night with concerns over his hamstring, but it looks like he has made a quick recovery.

The defender has been a key part of the Leeds back four since completing a move in the summer helping the Yorkshire giants record three clean sheets during their impressive winning streak against the likes of Blackburn, Cardiff and Ipswich.

Fans on social media were clearly delighted with the Sweden international a clear fan favourite at the club.

Here are a selection of their messages on Twitter:

Manager Garry Monk has named an unchanged side for the third match in a row for the clash against the Tykes.

In those three matches the former Swansea boss has watched his side win twice and lose once against Blackburn, Ipswich and Bristol City respectively and after a slow start it now looks like he has found his best side.

Barnsley are currently three points ahead of Leeds in 10th and the Yorkshire giants will be keen to beat their county rivals at Elland Road.

In other Leeds team news, Ian Holloway has predicted the Whites to beat Barnsley 2-1 on Saturday afternoon and backed striker Chris Wood to be amongst the goalscorers.
