Leeds United were held to a 1-1 draw against Nottingham Forest at the weekend, a fortunate result given the circumstances surrounding the Peacocks’ equaliser.
The concern is rising around Marcelo Bielsa’s side though as they are struggling to grind out victories, suffering a blip after a superb start to the season, and this has allowed the likes of Sheffield United and Middlesbrough to take advantage.
A significant upturn in form is needed in the coming weeks if Leeds are to be put back into the driving seat in the promotion chase and defender Pontus Jansson received plenty of words of encouragement on social media.
Taking to Twitter after the draw, fans were quick to praise another strong defensive performance from the Sweden centre-back but some encouraged the 27-year-old to turn things up a notch in the upcoming weeks.
We have gathered some of the best reactions below.

You were awesome yesterday Pontus, I love those occasional bull in a china shop runs you do into the opposition box, one day it will result in a goal and the ensuing celebration will be able to be seen from space.
