Leeds United fans were hitting out at Cardiff City after it was revealed that Sean Morrison’s red card, picked up in the 3-3 draw, will stand.
Surely Leeds can't blow a 10-point lead on 3rd?
The Cardiff captain was shown a straight red card in the latter stages of last Saturday’s draw for a nasty challenge on Eddie Nketiah.
However, despite all appeals, the decision was upheld by the FA, who confirmed the suspension and it was then relayed by the BBC.
Manager Neil Harris had hinted that he would try and get the decision overturned as he didn’t believe the tackle was dangerous.
The draw left Leeds two points adrift of Championship leaders West Bromwich Albion, who they face towards the end of the calendar year.
Fans were left less than happy with the Welsh club’s decision to appeal the straight red card as they took to Twitter to react to the news it was upheld.
Here is a selection of tweets from the Elland Road faithful:
Deserved sending off with that horrendous thing dangling from his top lip. Making me itch.

At first I thought the studs up challenge aimed at Eddie’s ankles was worthy of sending off, but then I saw the state of his moustache, and that alone is worthy of a 12 match ban.

How did they even have the nerve to appeal it? Disgusting immoral club.

Was a sending off all day long. He should get an extra game for bothering to appeal.
