Liam Cooper sends message to Leeds fans on Twitter after Fulham draw

Leeds defender unhappy to come away from Craven Cottage with only a point.

Leeds United defender Liam Cooper has admitted he and the team are unhappy to have come away from Fulham with only a point.

The Whites came from a goal down to claim a draw at Craven Cottage, and could easily have won it late on after a great effort from striker Mirco Antenucci.

Cooper reached out to fans on Twitter after the 1-1 draw, a little disappointed to have missed out on a win.

In the context of the way games had been going, a draw was not a bad result. Leeds had lost their last three games, and had little time to prepare for the Fulham fixture under manager Steve Evans.

Evans replaced Uwe Rosler on Monday on a chaotic day at the club, but avoiding defeat was not the priority for Leeds, whose attacking approach showed they went out to win the game.

The players clearly feel positive, and not reflective of a side 18th in the table, and they can make real strides with a win away to Bolton Wanderers at the weekend.

Striker Chris Wood was another to post, paying tribute to the fans, who topped the midweek attendance figure for away supporters.
