Pedraza ‘motivated’ for Leeds United’s big Brighton clash

Alfonso Pedraza seems to be full of optimism heading into this weekend’s Championship clash against Brighton at Elland Road.

Garry Monk’s side currently sit fourth in the league table, five points clear of seventh and 11 adrift of Newcastle United and Leeds, who reside in the automatic promotion places.

The team are unbeaten in their last six domestic fixtures, but they welcome Brighton to their patch after back-to-back draws.

Earlier in the season, Leeds were on the end of a 2-0 away defeat when the played Brighton in December.

Despite failing to claim maximum points in their last two games, Pedraza has tweeted to his 14,300 followers that he is determined to do his bit this Saturday.

The 20-year-old left-sided player joined the Championship outfit in January from Villarreal on a short-term loan.

He has so far made five league appearances, two of which came in draws against Fulham and Queens Park Rangers.

The Spaniard has also got one goal to his name, netting Leeds’ third in a 3-1 triumph over Birmingham City on March 3.
