Robbie Fowler and Troy Deeney react on Twitter to Leeds United win

The Watford striker and former Leeds man were left impressed with United on Thursday night.

Leeds United attract big audiences when they play on Sky Sports - and often big names.

Russell Crowe first praised Leeds on Twitter while watching them beat Middlesbrough on Sky, while various names across the football world are always keen to watch a side that were in the Champions League semi-finals only last decade.

On this occasion, Watford striker Troy Deeney was watching avidly, posting a few tweets here or there about the Whites.

And he was left very impressed with Stuart Dallas and Liam Bridcutt - both of whom enjoyed good performances against Wolverhampton Wanderers on Thursday night.

Dallas netted as United beat Wolves 3-2 at Molineux and Deeney praised him and Bridcutt on Twitter:

Meanwhile, former Leeds striker Robbie Fowler also took to social media to praise the Yorkshire club:

United were certainly much better in the second half but the big shift in momentum came when Tom Adeyemi came off injured after half an hour.

Leeds boss Steve Evans brought Souleymane Doukara on for the midfielder and - to the shock of many - it worked perfectly.
