Leeds fans on Twitter still fuming after dire refereeing display

Leeds fans on Twitter still fuming after dire refereeing display

For a lot of Leeds fans, the performance of Jeremy Simpson on Saturday is still infuriating. Their home clash with Brentford finished 1-1 after a shocking penalty decision gifted The Bees the lead before Pontus Jansson levelled with just minutes remaining.

Plenty of fans who watched the game on Saturday will be expecting some retrospective action for the FA. After the game, goalscorer Jansson was asked to speak to the media where he used some colourful language and claimed that the refereeing performance was a robbery, something that is sure to go down badly with the FA. However, one of the real frustrations is that the Whites are the only ones who will feel the force of the FA, with Brentford likely to get off.

Luke Ayling was sent off for a second yellow card in the dying seconds of the game, and the fact that Moses Odubajo hadn’t been sent packing for a second yellow earlier reeked of inconsistency as far as the Leeds fans were concerned. Couple that with the dodgy penalty decision and the fact that Brentford’s Sergi Canos appeared to headbutt Ezgjan Alioski and you can understand why the Leeds fans are fuming at the referee from Saturday, especially as more action is likely to be taken against them.

The Leeds fans are unlikely to let this one go anytime soon and will be desperate to see action taken after the shocking affair that was ruined by the referee.
