Fans praise Cooper after vital away win at Preston lifts Leeds back into the top two

Leeds fans are hoping captain Liam Cooper can lead their club to promotion from the Championship after returning to the top two last night.

Deepdale is a tough place for any Championship side to go to, but after Sheffield United came away from there with all three points on Saturday, Leeds simply had to do the same last night.

As always when facing Alex Neil’s side, Leeds had to battle hard and went in at half-time drawing 0-0, before two goals from Patrick Bamford sealed all three points for Marcelo Bielsa’s side.

But such an away win doesn’t come together without leadership and organisation at the back and that’s what skipper Liam Cooper provided last night.

Like Bamford, Cooper has had his critics at times during his Elland Road career but has really come to the fore this term.

The Whites fans have responded to that with excitement this season and took to Twitter to pay tribute to Cooper for his part in the clean sheet that helped their side back into the promotion spots ahead of Sheffield United’s trip to Birmingham – who of course beat Leeds on Saturday themselves – tonight.

We’ve put together the best of the reaction…
