@agbnufc_: “That is an absolutely MASSIVE win going into the break. Now let's get a bit of momentum (and a few signings to help that) We're still alive here.”

@YouveGoneAgain_: “First game I haven't watched in months and they win. I know what I need to do for the rest of the season.”

@cxreymurphy: “Schar was brilliant today. Willock came alive in the 2nd half and Longstaff was great when he came on. Onto the break and a few signings. We can do this.”

@milessteven001: “What a win against a very good Leeds team! Longstaff, Trippier & Schar all superb. Three games unbeaten and a much needed 3 points sets us up nicely for what is hopefully a positive end to the transfer window.”

@JamesNUFC07: “Out all of the places to keep a clean sheet we did it at Leeds!”
