Leeds United head coach Paul Heckingbottom says the hard work is finally paying off as they secured their first win since his arrival against Brentford.
Liam Cooper scored the only goal of the game just past the half hour as they secured their first win since Boxing Day and the first for Heckingbottom in his fourth game in charge and the new head coach says there were so many positives to take from the game.
‘It’s good to have the first win, it is a reward for the hard work of the players,” Heckingbottom told the BBC Website.
‘There are lots of positives to take from the performance. Lots of organisation goes into it and to be successful in this league you have to be able to defend and stop teams as well as hurt teams.
‘We had chances to get the second and close the game out and that is an area where we will need to be better.’
The win moves Leeds back to within five points of the play-off places and they travel to seventh placed Middlesbrough on Friday night knowing a win would draw them level on points with their hosts.
