Leeds fans react on Twitter to Pontus Jansson display against Wigan

By Alex Stevens

Leeds fans took to Twitter to hail Pontus Jansson after the team’s 1-1 draw against Wigan on Tuesday.

Garry Monk’s side were denied a win by a stoppage time Shaun MacDonald goal after Chris Wood had given them the lead at Elland Road.

Leeds went ahead when Wood brought down Hadi Sacko’s cross and lashed home a half-volley. Michael Jacobs hit the post as Wigan fought back, while Jansson had a header cleared off the line for the home side.

Wood had a looping header brilliantly saved by Adam Bogdan before MacDonald scored via the woodwork as the Latics secured a third successive draw.

On-loan Jansson has emerged as a  key member of Leeds’ team over the last month after leapfrogging Liam Cooper in the centre-back pecking order at Elland Road.
