Luke Garbutt sends message on Twitter ahead of Leeds clash

Everton-owned Fulham defender Luke Garbutt reflects on the draw with Middlesbrough and looks ahead to the game against Leeds United.

Everton-owned Fulham defender Luke Garbutt has taken to social networking site Twitter to give his reaction to his side’s failure to win against Middlesbrough away from home on Saturday.

The Cottagers failed to return to winning ways in the Championship and had to settle for a goalless draw with Middlesbrough at the Riverside Stadium.

Over the course of the 90 minutes, Fulham had 49% of the possession, took 13 shots of which just three were on target, and won only one corner.

Hosts Middlesbrough had 51% of the possession, took 18 shots of which just six were on target, and earned six corners.

Fulham will face Leeds United at Craven Cottage in the Championship on Wednesday evening, and Garbutt, who joined the London outfit on a season-long loan deal from Everton in the summer transfer window, is looking forward to it.

Fulham are 13th in the Championship table at the moment with 13 points from 11 matches, five points above the relegation zone and seven points behind sixth-place Derby County.

Meanwhile, Leeds currently find themselves 18th in the standings with 11 points from as many matches, just three points above the bottom three.
