Leeds United are enjoying a resurgence under manager Garry Monk.

The three-time League champions are in third place in The Championship and are looking to earn promotion to the Premier League. They have been outside the top-tier since relegation in 2004.

On Wednesday night, Leeds defeated Nottingham Forest 2-0, but it will be the goal of Souleymane Doukara that the game will be best remembered for. Doukara scored a goal that would have made Leeds legend Tony Yeboah proud. Yeboah's spell at Leeds is best remembered for a flurry of stunning goals, including strikes against Wimbledon and Liverpool.

Doukara put his name alongside Yeboah on Wednesday night, with a stunning strike, that would make the 50year-old Ghanaian proud. Such was the quality of the goal, numerous Leeds fans published footage of the stunning strike.

Souleymane Doukara. Take a bow!
