Cooper, 25, took to Twitter after the match and via his personal Twitter account he praised his team-mate while describing the atmosphere as “different class.”

Wood bagged his fourth goal in as many matches and Cooper paid testament to that by describing him as on fire with the emoji’s signifying so.
The New Zealand international received criticism from the Leeds support earlier in the campaign, but with seven goals in 11 appearances he is starting to prove his doubters wrong.
Meanwhile, Cooper, who moved to the club from Chesterfield in the summer of 2014 for a £600,000 fee watched the match from the bench.
Manager Garry Monk opted for on-loan duo Kyle Bartley and Pontus Jansson over Cooper, with the pair justifying the former Swansea boss’ decision by keeping a clean sheet in the tie.
The Yorkshire club have bounced up to 12th place with 13 points from their opening nine fixtures.
However, they also face a striker in form in their next game against Bristol City who boast the threat of 10-goal forward Tammy Abraham.
