Leeds United returned to winning ways at the weekend by beating Bristol City 2-0 at Elland Road, retaining their third-place spot in the Championship standings.
The result was far from comfortable though as it took the Peacocks until the second half to take the lead, with the goals coming after the visitors were reduced to ten men.
Kemar Roofe and Pablo Hernandez were the players to get on the scoresheet, while Marcelo Bielsa favourite Ezgjan Alioski attracted further criticism from some supporters for a performance many believed to be sub-par.
The Macedonia international has started all 18 of Leeds’ games this season under Bielsa, contributing three goals and three assists, but he has regularly found himself targeted by sections of the fanbase after not contributing directly to a goal for other a month.
However, many fans still rate the 26-year-old highly and took the opportunity to share their support on social media after Alioski took to Twitter after the game against the Robins. We have gathered some of the responses below.
