Leeds fans took to social media after the match to praise the striker, with many applauding him for getting on the score sheet.

Great substitution from Monk bringing Doukara on! He's won us 3 points instead of 1. #lufc

Doukara has really proved himself as well. Not fancied by Monk initially, but has fought his way back into the reckoning. Legend. #LUFC

Doukara joined Leeds in the summer of 2014 from Italian club Catania.
He had found himself out of favour at the Yorkshire giants under manager Garry Monk and had made just his six appearance for the club this afternoon in all competitions this season.
Leeds now sit in 9th place in the Championship with 23 points from 15 fixtures.
Monk’s side will travel to East Anglia next Saturday, where they will face Alex Neil’s high flying Canaries at Carrow Road.
In other Leeds news, manager Monk has hailed this senior player and has claimed he has what it takes.
