Horton reacts on Twitter to Leeds win; Mowatt & Cook rejoice

The Leeds goalkeeper was delighted, while the midfielders celebrated a strong win against Everton.

Leeds United goalkeeper Charlie Horton was delighted to have seen his first win at Elland Road - especially as it came during a 2-0 win over a Premier League side.

Indeed, Championship outfit Leeds rounded off their pre-season campaign with an impressive victory over Everton, which happened to produce their first win under Uwe Rosler.

The run-out is often considered more important than the scoreline during a friendly but the Whites got the better of both against the Toffees. And Horton was happy with the win and atmosphere.

Meanwhile, midfielders Alex Mowatt and Lewis Cook also rejoiced on Twitter.

Cook had injury troubles earlier this week but boss Rosler confirmed he was fine to feature against Everton, while Mowatt scored for Leeds during the 2-0 win.

Chris Wood added United's second as Leeds enjoyed the perfect preparation for the Championship season.

Leeds host Burnley on the first day of the Championship campaign, which should be a good barometer of exactly where Rosler's side are at. The Clarets were a Premier League outfit last term and should provide testing opposition in a division boss Sean Dyche has in the past proven adept in.
