By Amir Mir
Ronaldo Vieira expressed his delight on Twitter after Leeds secured a 2-0 win against Brighton on Saturday evening at Elland Road.
Midfielder Vieira started the game for Garry Monk’s side and hailed the “unreal” performance by his team as they secured a much-needed three points in their race for promotion.
Chris Wood was once again the man of the moment for the Whites, scoring two goals in the second half, including a penalty five minutes from time.
The result means that Leeds move up to fourth in the Championship table, eight points behind second-placed Brighton and two points behind third-placed Huddersfield.
After the match, 18-year-old Vieira sent this message to the 30,000 strong crowd that was at Elland Road on Saturday.

Academy product Vieira has been one of the success stories under Monk this season, with the teenage sensation impressing with his performances.
He has played 33 Championship and EFL Cup matches for his side this term, scoring one goal during that period.
That long-range strike is currently the only goal he has scored for the senior side and it came against Norwich in November.
Now, Monk and his team will recharge their batteries during the international break, but when they return they will take on promotion rivals Reading on April 1 followed by an away trip to Brentford three days later.
