He has followed the Whites home and away for 22 years and rarely misses a game.

Now Leeds United fan Ian English has been named the Sky Bet Championship Fan of the Month for February.

Ian has cerebral palsy and can only use his right arm and leg and made accurate predictions for United during their February matches.

Leeds United captain Liam Cooper presented him with the award.

The delighted Leeds United fan said: “I am over the moon to receive the Sky Bet Fan of the Month Award.

“It was my friend Don who nominated me and I am extremely grateful he did.

“As I use a wheelchair it takes me a while to get ready for games. But Don and I are always on the road by 11.10am so that we can enjoy the pre-match build-up in The Centenary Pavilion bar at Elland Road.”
