Watford's Deeney hails Leeds on Twitter; glad Murphy is back in the team

Elland Road

Watford striker Troy Deeney is pleased to see Luke Murphy back in the Leeds United team.

Watford star striker Troy Deeney has called Leeds United's victory over Bournemouth on Tuesday night a 'great result'. 

Leeds beat Bournemouth, one of Watford's promotion rivals, 1-0 in midweek and Deeney was clearly happy that the Whites had given his side a helping hand.

He was also delighted with the fact that Neil Redfearn had brought Luke Murphy, scorer of the winning goal in the fixture, back into his starting line-up in recent weeks.

The Yorkshire Evening Post had reported that Murphy was heading towards the exit door at Elland Road before the transfer window opened, but he has turned his career around over the past few games.

The central midfielder now has two goals in his last two games and he has been one of Leeds' most pivotal players as they have climbed away from the drop zone. 

Leeds are now six points clear of the bottom three and they will be looking towards Murphy to keep up his good form, as they try and gather some momentum for the first time this campaign.
