Leeds United scraped a win against struggling Bolton Wanderers yesterday to further demonstrate their promotion credentials.
Sometimes in a promotion bid, you have to win ugly and their 1-0 win at Bolton was exactly that.
Patrick Bamford came off the bench to score the only goal of the game, which sent Leeds to the top of the league.
With a six-point gap over third place, things are looking up for Leeds with fans starting to dream of a long-awaited return to the Premier League.
One man that has been at the heart of everything good about Leeds this season is Pontus Jansson.
The towering Sweden international was solid in defence once again, helping the Whites keep a clean sheet despite Bolton pushing for an equaliser.
After the game, the 27-year-old centre-back sent an unselfish message to supporters on social media.
Jansson said: “Remember one thing, this Leeds United isn’t about one, two or three important players. We are a squad and we will never stop no matter what happens.
“Game by game and what ever happens, we are ready for every challenge!”
Below are what Leeds fans said in reply to their cult hero.
The best team spirit I’ve seen at Leeds for years, it’s great to see MOT
