Leeds showed spirit, says Monk

first_imgGarry Monk believes Chris Wood’s last-minute equaliser against Fulham proved his Leeds team does have spirit.Whites boss Monk praised his side’s late comeback to earn a first point of the season after two opening Championship defeats.He said: “I’m delighted for Woody. That goal and his mentality epitomised the spirit in the group and what we did in those last 10 minutes.“After losing on Saturday we could have felt sorry for ourselves, and Woody missed a chance just before and could have felt sorry for himself.“But we spoke about desire and spirit right until the end and I’m very pleased for my players.“It can be a big boost for everyone and it will give Woody a lift as well – strikers love to score goals.”Monk felt his side were worthy of the draw, Wood’s goal cancelling out Tom Cairney’s opener for the Whites earlier in the second half.““I thought it was an even game, both teams had periods,” the Leeds boss said.“You could see they were confident from the start they’d had and we had to adjust to them, which we did.“We’ve probably had a season’s worth of ups and downs in the first three games but it’s experience for this young group and you could see their spirit in the changing room afterwards.“That last 10 minutes on the pitch was what I was looking for.”Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more
