Noel Whelan has revealed his delight on Twitter after Leeds’ victory over Brighton on Saturday.
The Whites managed to continue their home form with a 2-0 home win and it helped them consolidate their position in the play-off positions.
The Yorkshire giants are now fourth-placed going into the international break and look huge favourites to finish in the top six this season.
Chris Wood proved to be the difference once again for Garry Monk’s side and he opened the scoring in the second-half with a header, before dispatching a late penalty to secure the three points.
Former Leeds striker Whelan praised the impact of the fans at Elland Road and voiced his delight with another three points.
“My voice has gone but I don’t give a fork. Leeds won and what a performance from the team and fans,” Whelan wrote on his personal Twitter account.

Leeds’ defence once again played a major role in their success as goalkeeper Rob Green ensured they kept another clean sheet.
The Whites have conceded just one goal in their last three matches and that has helped them become promotion candidates.
Meanwhile, Leeds’ attackers managed to break down a resilient Brighton defence in the second-half, with Wood continuing to be the key player.
