Pontus Jansson delivers Twitter verdict after Leeds win v Preston

By Dominic Toner

Leeds defender Pontus Jansson revealed his delight on Twitter after his side’s victory against Preston on Saturday.

The Whites managed to consolidate their position in the top six by beating Preston 3-0 at Elland Road.

Garry Monk’s side still have a five-point cushion inside the play-offs and there are now just five Championship games remaining.

Sweden international Jansson expressed his joy after Leeds’ win and gave a special mention to his homeland following the recent Stockholm attack.

“Good win and now five to go. After what happened yesterday, this two pictures means a lot to me. Love my country,” Jansson wrote on his personal Twitter account.

Leeds managed to respond from back-to-back defeats against Reading and Brentford to get their promotion bid on track.

The three points meant they stay fifth in the league standings and gives them a great chance of finishing in the play-offs.

They travel to second-placed Newcastle in their next fixture, before a home clash with Wolves.

Jansson has played a starring role in Leeds’ campaign so far and the centre-back has made a huge impact at Elland Road since his summer arrival.

The powerful defender has made 31 appearances this season across all competitions and has been recalled to the side during Liam Cooper’s six-game suspension.

In other Leeds news, Monk has revealed why Liam Bridcutt was omitted from the squad against Preston.
