Pedraza posts Twitter message ahead of Leeds v Brighton, fans will be encouraged

By Will Butcher

Alfonso Pedraza is determined to help Leeds secure all three points against promotion rivals Brighton in Saturday’s tea-time kick-off at Elland Road.

On-loan winger Pedraza is expected to start his third consecutive game for Garry Monk’s side on the left flank, as he looks to show why he should be handed a permanent deal in Yorkshire.

The 20-year-old winger posted on his personal Twitter account, stating his excitement to be back at Elland Road this weekend ahead of Leeds “battle for three points.”

Joining Leeds on loan from La Liga giants Villarreal on January’s transfer deadline day, the fleet-footed Spain Under-21 international has shone in the white of Leeds.

Providing a flair in Leeds’ final third, Pedraza opened his account for the Yorkshire giants late on in the 3-1 win against Birmingham City and will be looking to add to that on Saturday.

Wearing the number 20 shirt, Pedraza will be hoping to inspire Leeds into exacting revenge on Chris Hughton’s men after Brighton strolled to a 2-0 win at the Amex earlier this season.

Three points against captain Liam Bridcutt’s former side will see Leeds consolidate their position in the top six, and could see them move to within two points of Huddersfield.

In other Leeds news, Bridcutt has predicted the clash against Brighton as well as heaping praise on his 25-year-old teammate.
