Leeds United remained two points behind West Brom at the top of the Sky Bet Championship at the weekend with a late win over Luton Town at Kenilworth Road.
The Hatters were in poor form going into the game but were always going to be up for the clash with the Whites and so it proved.
In the end, the away side came away with a narrow 2-1 win to keep hot on the heels of West Brom but not before they had a fair bit of drama thrown their way.
Indeed, at one point Luton thought that they had scored a second goal of the game but it was ruled out for offside, much to this Hatter’s bemusement:
We would very much have liked to have had VAR in our Championship game against Leeds Utd today. Linesman rules Luton’s second goal offside when Leeds player was clearly playing James Collins onside. VAR would have given the goal I am sure. pic.twitter.com/V9Jwh4Vafy

Naturally, this controversy has sparked a big debate on Twitter so let’s see what has been said on the social media site in response from Leeds fans:

When bad refereeing has cost you league titles, European cup finals, Cup winners cup finals and FA cup semi finals, apologies for not having any sympathy with you

Good chance VAR would have picked this up as handball in the build up pic.twitter.com/ItJcQiu2bi

That angle is useless. Looks about level to me, but far too tight to say for sure.

Please don't show Bielsa. He'll write to the EFL to give them the equaliser.

If the wide Leeds player counts, what about the Luton player by the corner flag?

Some interesting takes but all that matters for Whites fans is that they won the game.
