WHAT a great day to be at Elland Road on Saturday.

Goals from Kemar Roofe and Chris Wood sank one of the favourites for automatic promotion from the Championship as Leeds enhanced their own promotion credentials by moving up to fourth in the table.

Afterwards, manager Garry Monk said Roofe’s brave header that put his side in front was no more than he deserved after a string of impressive performances for Leeds.

“It was important for him,” he said.

“It has been coming. He has been unlucky not to (score), but his performances in recent weeks have really helped him, and helped the team.

“He has deserved that, but he will tell you himself that the most important thing was the three points.”
