Leeds fans believe comments from Brentford manager are the perfect motivation

Leeds United travel to Griffin Park on Tuesday night to face Brentford in the Championship – and some of the club’s supporters believe that comments from opposition’s manager should serve as the perfect motivation.

The Whites go into the midweek fixture on the back of four defeats from their previous five league games and it means they only sit second in the table on goal difference.

Marcelo Bielsa’s side have seen their advantage in the automatic promotion spots completely cut and now they need to quickly turn their form around.

The Yorkshire giants travel to an in-form Brentford side that are fifth in the Championship and they will leapfrog them with a win.

Leeds did beat Brentford 1-0 at Elland Road in the reverse fixture this season, but they suffered a 2-0 loss on their trip to Griffin Park last season to dent their automatic promotion hopes at the time.

Brentford manager Thomas Frank has been speaking ahead of his side’s match on Tuesday and believes that Leeds will be dreading facing them.

“We definitely have more momentum than Leeds right now. Everyone knows how much I respect Marcelo Bielsa and what he has done to build up Leeds as a club and as a team but they couldn’t pick a worse place to play Tuesday night,” Frank said, as quoted by the club’s official Twitter account.

A selection of Leeds supporters on social media believe that manager Frank has given the perfect fuel to spark a response from the players.

They know they are in for a difficult fixture on Tuesday, but they do have talisman Kalvin Phillips back in midfield from suspension and know they have a chasing pack breathing down their neck in the league table.

Here are some Leeds fans responding to Frank’s pre-match comments:
