Leeds fans urge Monk to start attacking duo for Birmingham showdown
By Amir Mir
Leeds take on Birmingham City in a Championship clash on Friday night – and fans on Twitter have urged Garry Monk to start attacking duo, Alfonso Pedraza and Modou Barrow.
The Yorkshire club will travel to the Midlands looking to build upon their impressive win against promotion rivals Sheffield Wednesday last time out.
Striker Chris Wood struck the only goal of the game during that fixture, but fans now want changes to the attacking department for their midweek showdown.
Souleymane Doukara and Hadi Sacko were the players who started the last match, but fans want to see January signings Pedraza and Barrow given a run in the side.
One fan stated that the club didn’t sign them to sit on the bench as they are yet to make their first starts for the club.

At this moment in time, they have both been limited to appearances from the bench, but one supporter believes there is not enough quality coming out wide so he would start the duo.
Furthermore, another supporter wants to see the attacking line freshened up, but fans cannot see their manager changing a winning team.
Overall, the Elland Road faithful want to see the duo given a run for the money so they can show their manager what they are about.
Here is a selection of their message on Twitter:
Wonder if Leeds are going to give Barrow and Pedraza a run for their money in fridays game? #lufc ????????

I def think we should, but I doubt he'll change a winning team. Personally I'd start them both along with Roofe. Freshen up attack

Wouldn't be too much of an irrational stab in the dark to start either Pedraza or Barrow tonight, not enough coming from wide for me #lufc

I agree , surely both new signings have seen enough in training to see how the team ticks?

I would like to see both but get GM is holding off whilst getting the team playing well again after the blip trust him 100%

I would play Barrow and Pedraza tonight, unleash them to do the damage and feed Wood…with Bridcutt, Viera & O'Kane in midfield #lufc

Wonder if we are actually going to see anything much of Pedrazza and Barrow in games coming up.. #lufc

@ephemeraljoy Agree Jon, although I can see why he's largely sticking with tried & tested. Sacko been very poor recdntly

Both teams go into this fixture on the back of morale-boosting results. The Blues beat Midlands rivals Wolves 2-1 away from home las Friday, while the Whites beat their Yorkshire rivals also.
