Adam Forshaw shares what he told Stuart Dallas about the Leeds fans after Tuesday's win

Adam Forshaw has told BBC Radio Leeds what he said to Stuart Dallas about the Elland Road crowd following Leeds United’s dramatic win over Crystal Palace on Tuesday.

Both sides had their chances. And Leeds rode their luck at times. But ultimately, a Raphinha penalty in stoppage-time settled the contest.

The goal took an already amazing atmosphere to another level. And that was clearly not lost on the players as Forshaw shared the conversation he had with Dallas about the crowd.

“I was speaking to Stuart Dallas after the game on Tuesday night and I don’t hear a noise like that anywhere else in any other stadium,” he told BBC Radio Leeds.

“Genuinely, the way the fans were on Tuesday night, I think, doesn’t half drive us on. I think we were in the ice bath after the game talking about it.”

Leeds fans were forced to largely watch the club’s most successful period for almost two decades from their own homes.

They were not in the ground as Liam Cooper lifted the Championship trophy. They were not inside Anfield as Leeds pushed the champions all the way in their first game back in the Premier League. And they were not at the Etihad as Stuart Dallas gave Marcelo Bielsa’s men a stunning win.

Admittedly, Leeds were selling out in the Championship. But they have somehow taken the atmosphere to another level now that fans are back in stadiums.

And they certainly played their part in Tuesday’s win. Their reactions to when Kalvin Phillips clattered Conor Gallagher, or when Dan James won two tackles in quick succession, or even when the board went up for five additional minutes made a difference.

And clearly, it made a major impression on the Leeds squad.
