Monk must axe Leeds first teamer for Brentford clash (not Hernandez)
COMMENT By Dominic Toner
Leeds manager Garry Monk must drop midfielder Hadi Sacko for the upcoming clash against Brentford on Tuesday.
The Whites travel to Brentford for a Championship encounter and the 23-year-old should be relegated to the bench.
The Yorkshire club will be looking to respond from a 1-0 defeat against Reading in their last game, when Sacko failed to impact the match and was substituted off in the 60th minute.
Leeds were unable to recapture their best form against Reading and saw their seven-game unbeaten run end.
Pablo Hernandez, Ronaldo Vieira and Liam Cooper were among those stars to see their standards slip, but it’s Sacko who needs to be axed.

The winger has been a regular feature in Monk’s side this campaign and has made 37 appearances so far.
The Frenchman is on loan and has shown promise with his skill and pace, but he has managed just two goals and supplied four assists so far.
Sacko was fairly ineffective during the Reading clash and Leeds must turn to someone else for the Brentford game.
The Whites have so many options in their squad and either Souleymane Doukara, Kemar Roofe or Modou Barrow deserve a chance to stake their claim.
Leeds’ play-off status is edging closer to being confirmed, but they may still need a couple more victories and Monk still needs to work out his best two wingers ahead of those potential games at the end of the season.
