Leeds United fans were left praising Ezgjan Alioski after the left-back scored the second goal in the 2-0 win over Hull City.
The North Macedonia international put the gloss on the victory when he slotted home a rebound after Patrick Bamford had hit the post when the Whites counter-attacked their opponents.
Is Marcelo Bielsa the best coach in the Championship
It is the player’s second goal in as many games and takes his tally up to three goals and a sole assist for the season (via Transfermarkt).
The result proved a crucial one for the Yorkshire side as they once again stretched their lead over third-placed Fulham and fourth-placed Bristol City to 11 points after the two teams suffered defeats (via BBC).
Marcelo Bielsa’s side have now overtaken promotion rivals West Bromwich Albion in first place ahead of their game against Wigan Athletic tonight.
Fans were full of praise for the defender as they took to Twitter to lavish him with praise.
Here is a selection of tweets from the Elland Road faithful:
