Leeds United manager Garry Monk has expressed his happiness after they defeated Bristol City 2-1 to hold their position in the Championship table.

Chris Wood opened the scoring in the 27th minute to open the scoring for the Whites. He headed home from a Pablo Hernandez free-kick to score his 22nd goal of the season. Hernandez doubled the lead immediately after the interval. Bristol reduced the deficit through Milan Djuric during the stoppage time.

Leeds United had to work really hard to win this match after two back to back defeats. Garry Monk’s side are eyeing a promotion after a long hiatus and they need to finish in the top six to earn a playoff berth (duh!).

Bristol City remains three points clear of the relegation zone and needs to do better in the next matches to survive demotion. They have managed only two wins in their last 17 matches.

Monk praised his players after the match, “It was a good response and pleasing to get the three points.

“There was a little bit more pressure and expectancy on us to get the result tonight.

“It was the first time we had suffered back-to-back defeats since the start of the season, so we are happy to get the win.

“I thought we did very well in the first half in particular and we are pleased to get back on track.”


Monk was linked with Rangers for the managerial job. However, despite all the paper nonsense, Monk kept his cool and guided Leeds United to their 18th win in the Championship. Let’s be honest, if it comes down to it, it is not a tough decision for Monk, is it? Of course a manager like Garry Monk will try to get a historic team like Leeds United to the Premier League over guiding Rangers to playing second fiddle (atleast for the moment) to Celtic.

At the moment, if the choices are Rangers and Leeds United, it is not even a hard choice. The question is can Monk get the job done at Leeds United and really guide them to the promised land of Premier League football.

The Yorkshire side won their first game in February 2-1 against Blackburn Rovers, but lost consecutive matches, 2-1 at Huddersfield Town and 2-0 to Cardiff City.

Leeds could have scored more goals but Woods had missed a golden chance to increase his tally. They will now entertain Ipswich Town in the next match.
