Monk sends Twitter message to fans ahead of Leeds clash against Forest

By Harvey Byrne

Garry Monk has revealed on Twitter his delight at a productive last session in the build-up to Leeds’ showdown against Nottingham Forest on Saturday.

The Yorkshire side are unbeaten in their last three matches in all competitions with two wins and a draw and the former Swansea boss highlighted the importance of extending the run.

Leeds manager Monk took to his personal Twitter account on Friday afternoon to inform fans that the final training session provided sound preparation.

“Productive last session before heading to Nottingham, as we look to extend our good run,” posted Monk on the social media platform.

The inexperienced manager joined this summer following the dismissal of Steve Evans, as chairman Massimo Cellino looks to make another attempt at returning the famous club to the Premier League.

However, there were rumours that the Italian boss was ready to sack Monk after a less than impressive start, which involved losses against QPR and Birmingham alongside a penalty win against League One side Fleetwood.

The tide seems to have changed for the Yorkshire giants now though and the club have benefited from the recent additions of Liam Bridcutt and Pontus Jansson.

The long-term Premier League absentees have added eleven players to their squad, including Robert Green, Marcus Antonsson and Kemar Roofe alongside Bridcutt and Jansson.

The clash against Forest will be played at the City Ground with the home side sitting in a comfortable 11th place, while Leeds reside in the 19th spot.
