Speaking to a press conference via LUTV, Egzjan Aloski has suggested that he was taken back by Leeds United's support for a midweek game.

Leeds beat Birmingham City 2-0 on Tuesday to move top of the Championship, with goals from Samu Saiz and Stuart Dallas in either half doing the damage.

There is major optimism surrounding the Whites so far in what has been a stunning start to the 2017-18 campaign under Thomas Christiansen and, as a result, the fans, as ever, are firmly supporting their boys.

Against Birmingham, some 31,000 Leeds fans made the trip to Elland Road which, given that it was a Tuesday night, is indicative of the kind of support the players have.

And Alioski, a £3.2 million signing from Swiss side Lugano, admits he never saw such loyal support from his time in Switzerland.

"It's unbelievable to play [at Elland Road]. The fans are amazing and I enjoy it always," he told a press conference via LUTV.

"I remember Tuesday, against Birmingham City, we had 31,000. On a Tuesday. In Switzerland I never see this."

Leeds, still unbeaten this season, visit Millwall tomorrow as United look to preserve their excellent start to life under the Spanish head coach.
