Leeds fans made the 212-mile round trip to support their beloved side at Bristol City’s newly developed Ashton Gate, which held 19,699 fans from both sides on Tuesday night.
The former Malaga B manager was on his own in the dugout towards the end of the match after manager Garry Monk was sent to the stands following a foul from left-back Charlie Taylor.
The win for Lee Johnson’s side has ended Leeds’ winning streak of four games, which saw them pick up three points against Blackburn, Cardiff and Ipswich as well as knocking Blackburn out of the EFL Cup.
The Yorkshire giants will be looking to reignite some of that lost momentum on Saturday as they host rivals Barnsley at Elland Road, before the Championshoip is paused for two weeks during the international break.
