Leeds United finally earned their first victory of 2018 after beating Brentford 1-0 in the Championship clash on Saturday.
Liam Cooper scored the only goal of the match in the 31st minute as Leeds ended their 10-game winless run.
It was also Leeds’ first victory under new manager Paul Heckingbottom, and the Whites will hope that they can put together a decent run of form from here on to boost their play off hopes.
After the match, Leeds striker Pierre-Michel Lasogga took to social networking site Twitter to express his reaction. He tweeted:
Great game and important 3 points today ⚽❤… pic.twitter.com/7S6RHWcsEY

The 26-year-old has been in fine form recently, and has scored five goals in his last seven games.
He could have added another to his goal tally when his shot beat goalkeeper Dan Bentley but Ryan Woods cleared off the line.
Lasogga managed four shots during the game, and showed his physical prowess by wining three arial duels.
You’re in danger of becoming a crowd favorite now Pierre ? Who would have thought that during the fall? Keep up the great work!
