Former players revel in Leeds United’s win over Sheffield Wednesday

Noel Whelan and Paul Robinson were buzzing with the latest win for Marcelo Bielsa’s men.

Leeds United took a major step towards Premier League football for the first time in 15 years with a 1-0 win over Sheffield Wednesday at Elland Road.

The Whites are now three points clear of Sheffield United in third after they could only manage a 1-1 draw with Millwall.

Marcelo Bielsa has transformed the fortunes of the West Yorkshire-based club and they have played some stunning football this season.

A couple of former Leeds players were in good spirits following the win.

Noel Whelan scored seven goals in 48 appearances from 199 to 1995 and now occasionally covers Leeds games for local radio.

The ex-striker tweeted his delight following Millwall’s late equaliser at Bramall Lane:

Another ex-White was also in ecstatic mood following what could be a pivotal win.

Paul Robinson played 95 games for Leeds having risen through the academy ranks into the first-team.

The goalkeeper went on to have a stunning career playing for Spurs, Blackburn and Burnley, whilst also winning 41 England caps.

Robinson took to Twitter at full time to recite Leeds’ famous club song ‘Marching on Together’:

Both players clearly still hold Leeds close to their heart and will be thoroughly hoping Bielsa’s men complete the job.
