Leeds fans urge Monk to start this highly criticised player against Burton
By Amir Mir
Leeds take on Burton Albion in a Championship clash on Saturday afternoon – and fans on Twitter have urged Garry Monk to start Souleymane Doukara.
The 25-year-old has not started a league game for his side since their 1-1 draw at Fulham in early March, with the versatile attacker making brief substitute appearances since.
Over the course of the season, Doukara has been highly criticised by the fans for failing to show any consistencies in his game.
Doukara can show moments of brilliance in one game and then completely frustrate his fans in the next match to the detriment of the team.
Anyhow, after a brief spell on the bench, the Elland Road faithful now want him back in the starting XI after a bad run of results for Monk’s side.

The Yorkshire club have lost three of their last five matches, including losing 1-0 at home to Paul Lambert’s Wolves on Easter Monday.
That result added with Fulham’s win against Aston Villa meant that Monk’s team have now fallen outside of the play-off places, with just three matches of the season remaining,
However, Leeds fans are aware that nine points from now on will help them edge closer to a return to the Premier League.
Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:
Burton bound. Vieira has to start. Would personally like to see O'Kane, Taylor and Doukara from the off too. #LUFC

I'd play Doukara mate but would drop Pablo for Roofe, away from home. Roofe will run all afternoon and hopefully cause many problems #lufc

Big butterflies before Burton. Restore Vieira & Phillips partnership. Bridcutt sacrificed. I'd also start Taylor & Doukara. Thoughts? ????

Doukara has played 37 matches in all competitions for his side this season, scoring six goals added with his four assists.
All of his six strikes have come during 32 Championship matches, with his last goal coming against Preston North End at the start of the month.
Monk brought on Doukara for the final ten minutes as he managed to help secure all three points on that day against Simon Grayson’s side.
