Garry Monk insists that his focus is not on who Leeds United draw in the next round of the EFL Cup, after they edged out Luton Town 1-0 tonight, but on Nottingham Forest in the Championship at the weekend.

The Leeds boss handed young Tyler Denton his debut against the Hatters and the full-back curled in a superb shot in the 23rd minute to put the Whites in front.

Leeds could have added to their advantage, seeing Kemar Roofe hit the crossbar, but had to settle for scoring just the once and keeping Luton out at the other end to progress.

Monk was pleased with his side's display, even if he thinks they could have made it easier for themselves by scoring again.

"All in all, over the whole period of the game we were the better team, or more likely team to win the game", Monk told LUTV.


"We got the goal. We should have probably capitalised on a couple of opportunities to make it a little more comfortable, but I thought the players did really well, especially in that last ten minutes when we had to dig in and really grind it out."

The draw for the next round of the EFL Cup takes place tomorrow night, but Monk feels that is an event for the fans to enjoy, as he has turned his focus onto Leeds' next Championship game, against Nottingham Forest at the weekend.

"To be honest I'm not really bothered [who we get].

"I'm just really focused on Saturday now. A few of those players have given me food for thought and obviously we have the other players we left behind.

"We're through to the next round that's great. We'll see who we get tomorrow night, that's one for the fans, my focus is on Nottingham Forest", Monk added.
