Photo: Leeds fans will love Mirco Antenucci's celebration after scoring v Blackburn

The Italian showed some more passion for the club on Saturday afternoon.

Mirco Antenucci's celebration after scoring at Blackburn Rovers for Leeds United on Saturday afternoon showed a certain connection with the club's fans.

Indeed, the Italian quite literally connected with some supporters as he celebrated and hugged them after netting.

Leeds beat Blackburn Rovers 2-1 on Saturday to register their third consecutive win in the Championship - some feat.

Just what is it with Steve Evans and his team? When it's bad, it's very bad - the 4-0 thumping at Brighton was a total disaster and Leeds were 2-0 down within minutes during the reverse fixture against Blackburn.

When it's good, however, just look how good it can be under Evans.

Antenucci, meanwhile, has proved his ability and desire over the last few games. It's simply a matter of the Leeds man showing that all season and producing when the chips are down.

Just like Evans, the 31-year-old proved how good he can be when he wants to. And he definitely shares a bond with fans when he's on song.
