Even as Leeds United slumped to a shock 4-2 defeat against Nottingham Forest on Tuesday, the loss definitely wasn’t because of a lack of effort.
After going a man down in the 42nd minute following Kalvin Phillips’ dismissal for a dangerous tackle on Adlene Guedioura, the Championship leaders showed great spirit to score two goals and take the lead in the second half.
The celebrations following Alioski’s strike was definitely a sight to behold as players rushed to celebrate with the fans but certain faces amongst the away crowd seemed to had doubly delighted the players.
United’s injured trio of Liam Cooper, Stuart Dallas and Gaetano Berardi all decided to support their team on their travels and were in attendance at the City Ground during the midweek fixture in what was a clear indication of the togetherness that is prevailing in Marcelo Bielsa’s side.
Pontus Jansson almost seemed shocked as Berardi approached him during the celebrations and his reaction was brilliantly captured on film by an away fan.
Pure gold. Check out Pontus Jansson’s reaction after spotting Berardi amongst the away fans here:
