Monk delivers verdict on Leeds win v Wolves

By Dominic Toner

Garry Monk believes that Leeds were “really determined” in their Championship clash against Wolves.

The Whites won 1-0 at the Molineux Stadium on Saturday and continued their climb up the table.

Forward Kemar Roofe netted the decisive goal in the 70th minute and his first for the club since his summer arrival from Burton.

The result leaves Leeds 10th in the table and they are now just three points adrift of the play-off positions.

Leeds manager Monk claims that his players were determined to continue their form and that was evident against Wolves.

“Today we were really determined to get the result and performance and we got that. I can see the determination in everyone’s eyes, we are all enjoying it at the moment,” he said, as quoted by the club’s official Twitter account.

Monk was named the manager at Elland Road in the summer and endured a difficult start this season, picking up just one point from the opening three league games.

The Whites have turned the corner after a difficult start and key players such as Pontus Jansson and Chris Wood have begun to perform regularly.

Bristol City currently occupy the final play-off spot and Monk will be hopeful of bridging the three point gap.

Leeds face Championship rivals Norwich on Tuesday in the EFL Cup fourth-round and Monk could tempted to rest some star players for their league aspirations.
