Swedish defender Pontus Jansson played a key role in keeping another clean sheet for Leeds United.

The centre-back helped Leeds to a 2-0 win over Birmingham City, their fifth league shutout in succession, with Jansson playing all of these matches.

He sent a message on Twitter to fans after the game toasting the victory.

Jansson expressed his delight at the final whistle by celebrating wildly in front of the fans with his teammates and acknowledging the role the support played in the victory.

Samu Saiz scored a first half opener and Leeds had to ride out a lot of second half pressure, before Stuart Dallas netted an injury time goal to seal the result.

Jansson's contribution to the Leeds team cannot be underestimated and the result puts the club top of the table, as Cardiff lost 3-0 at Preston.

Up next for Leeds is a trip to Millwall on Saturday.
