Charlie Taylor's message to 4,698 traveling Leeds fans

The 21-year-old Leeds star is grateful to the Elland Road faithful.

Leeds United full-back (and winger) Charlie Taylor has thanked the traveling support after his side's 1-0 win over Wigan on Saturday afternoon, according to BBC Radio Leeds.

No less than 4,698 Leeds fans attended the Yorkshire side's victory over Wigan Athletic and the 21-year-old has expressed his gratitude to the legions of fans.

Discussing the importance of Leeds' away support, easily one of the biggest - if not the very biggest - in the Championship, Taylor admitted having so many passionate fans cheering the side on is a 'massive' help to the players.

Every Leeds star is boosted by those that travel, he says, and the '12th man' can be key to winning games - just as they were at the DW Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

"They're a massive help. They're always like that," Taylor said.

"They're a 12th man for us and give all the players such a boost on the pitch and it's just great when you see the noise that they're making."

Those Leeds fans had plenty to celebrate in Wigan, with Neil Redfearn's side registering their seventh win in 10 Championship games to move up to 13th in the league table.

Remarkably, United are just three points off 10th place - with the likes of 21-year-old Taylor and co vital to their recent success. Nottingham Forest will be the next side to test Redfearn's young Leeds squad next weekend.
