Leeds stars react to win over Reading

Last night, Leeds United continued their march towards the Premier League with a solid 2-0 win over promotion rivals Reading at Elland Road.

Following a dismal start to the season that had many fearing from Garry Monk’s job, the Whites have taken 31 points from the last possible 45 – including three last night when Jaap Stam’s Royals came to town.

Star striker Chris Wood opened the scoring in the 19th minute but worryingly hobbled off just a quarter of an hour later.

That limited the Yorkshire outfit’s cutting edge but they still managed to extend their lead in second-half stoppage time via a Souleyman Doukara penalty, which eradicated any doubt of Leeds not claiming a deserved win.

The Whites are now fifth in the Championship table, eight points away from the automatic promotion spots.¬†Clearly feeling the optimism surrounding Elland Road at the moment, Leeds’ players – and manager Garry Monk – expressed their delight with the win on Twitter.
