Leeds fans on Twitter expecting sanctions after Bolton handbags

Leeds fan will be delighted that their side was able to hold out yesterday and grab a much-needed win to keep them within three points of top spot with a game in hand. Marcelo Bielsa’s side overcame Bolton 2-1 at Elland Road through goals from Bamford and Alioski, yet it wasn’t without controversy as a mass confrontation broke out in the second half.

The Whites had just enjoyed seeing Ezgjan Alioski put them 2-1 up with just over 20 minutes to play when things kicked off. The goalscorer was fouled near the touchline by Joe Williams before the Bolton man attempted to drag the Macedonian back up. That act saw handbags break loose, resulting in Phil Parkinson being sent off and Williams receiving a yellow card.

It wasn’t just a few players involved either, as Mateusz Klich was caught on camera squirting water down the back of Williams whilst Pontus Jansson, in true Jansson fashion, charged into the middle of things. It certainly wasn’t a pretty side for the viewers and will be something that the FA will no doubt get involved in, and it’s something that the Leeds fans are expecting to come down very heavily on them, as they feel everything does at Elland Road.

The Whites are already expecting to hear of a call from the FA on Monday and won’t be surprised when they’re hit with a hefty fine.
