Leeds United man sends positive message out before big Brentford test

Published

on

Paul Heckingbottom is still looking for his first win as Leeds United boss, with the Yorkshire side set to welcome play-off chasing Brentford to Elland Road tomorrow.

The Whites have had a frustrating three games under the former Barnsley manager, drawing two and losing one.

However, there have been positive signs in the last week, with Leeds earning a point from 2-0 at home to Bristol City before leading high-flying Derby until stoppage time on Wednesday.

And, that positivity in the camp was demonstrated by keeper Andy Lonergan who delivered a passionate tweet ahead of tomorrow’s game.

Given the form of current number one Felix Wiedwald, it wouldn’t be a big surprise to see the experienced stopper return to the side.

The German made a huge error against the Robins on Sunday as he failed to deal with a routine long throw, whilst a misunderstanding with Liam Cooper led to Derby’s late equaliser in the week.

So, whether Lonergan’s tweet is because he knows he is playing or just a general message of support remains to be seen but Heckingbottom must be considering a change.

The Verdict

Leeds fans will be glad to see their player sending positive messages out on twitter ahead of what is a big game.

They also may want to see Lonergan back in the team, despite the mixed spell he had in goal earlier in the season.

The goalkeeping position has been a real concern for the Whites all season and Heckingbottom has a decision to make after events in the last week. Either way, whoever does start in goal will need to put in a good performance if they are to get anything from a confident Brentford side.

Thoughts, Leeds fans? Let us know in the comments below.
