Dallas was recalled to the starting line-up against Birmingham and played 73 minutes, before being replaced by goalscorer Pedraza.
The winger has continue to be rotated in and out of the side this season as Monk has assembled numerous options.
Leeds will now turn their attention to a potentially huge clash away to Fulham on Tuesday and would take another giant stride towards the play-0ff with a win.
The Whites are now seven points adrift of the automatic spots having played a game more than the top two, but will most likely continue to look nervously behind them.
