Leeds United head coach Paul Heckingbottom spoke exclusively to LUTV following Sunday’s draw with Bristol City.
The Whites fought back from behind, to record a 2-2 draw against the Robins in Heckingbottom’s first home game in charge of Leeds.
United’s head coach spoke about the impact the fans had on the game, in helping the team come back from two goals behind.
“I am proud of the players and proud of the fans,” said Heckingbottom.
“The fans played a big part and the point is as much for their backing and their support, as it was the energy and intensity of the players.
“At 2-0 down it was a tough task, but everybody showed what they are about today and if you can get the alignment between the fans and energy of the players, you can achieve good things.
“I’d been looking forward to this first game at Elland Road since I got the job, because I’ve experienced the other side of the atmosphere, in the dugout and on the pitch.
“To have that backing was something really special and the supporters played a big part in the comeback.
“Pierre-Michel Lasogga hit the bar and Kalvin Phillips had one which went over, Kalvin was gutted in the changing room, but the pleasing thing is, that they are getting in the right areas and that is what we want, the players being brave and positive.
“We want to grow together and get better and the only way you can get better is by identifying who has done what and how we are going to put things right and work with the individual players.
“Being in two weeks now and looking back over games, the sort of goals we conceded against Bristol have been a common trend, with little mistakes or someone not quite doing the fine little detail which has cost us a goal and this is what we want to iron out.
