Leeds United manager Garry Monk and assistant boss Pep Clotet have taken to Twitter after their 2-1 win over Bristol City.

After successive defeats to Huddersfield Town and Cardiff City, which came shortly after a shock FA Cup exit at the hands of non-league side Sutton United, Leeds fans were left hoping that they weren't going through something of a wobble.

Those fears were largely put to bed as Leeds beat Bristol City 2-1 on Tuesday night, with Chris Wood sweeping the Whites in front as he latched on to Pablo Hernandez's quick free kick – though he appeared to foul Bailey Wright in the build-up.

Hernandez made it 2-0 after the break as his shot deflected past Fabian Giefer and into the net, before Milan Djuric headed home a late consolation for the struggling Robins.

With Huddersfield, Reading and Sheffield Wednesday all winning on Tuesday, it was imperative that Leeds also claimed three points to match their top six rivals, and they did just that.

Seventh-placed Norwich City drew at home with Newcastle, meaning Leeds sit six points inside the play-off places and on course for a shot at finally returning to the Premier League.

After the final whistle, Leeds assistant manager Pep Clotet took to Twitter to send a Valentine's Day message to supporters, proclaiming that he is in love with Elland Road and Leeds' 'incredible' fans.

Earlier today, manager Garry Monk followed suit, sending a message to fans by stating that a response to two straight defeats was important, and hailed the fans for their support during the game.
