Eunan O’Kane was sent off for Leeds in an off-the-ball incident, said to be a headbutt, in the 37th minute of the Championship game with Ipswich.
Leeds had enjoyed the better of the first half up to that point but finished the first half under the cosh after the were reduced to 10 men.
It’s the latest in a string of disciplinary issues for Leeds under manager Thomas Christiansen this season, after Gateano Berardi was banned for three games for a headbutt on Bristol City’s Matty Taylor and Samu Saiz was banned for six games after a spitting incident in the FA Cup defeat against Newport.
Ironically, after the Saiz ban was announced it was O’Kane who said that the players were disappointed with the attacker and that he would learn a lesson from his ban. That was earlier this week.
Back to the game and Leeds managed to get to half-time with the score at 0-0, but they couldn’t last the full 90 minutes and lost 1-0.
Fans are completely fed up with the latest problem to hit their squad, at a time when they need all the bodies they can get.
Here is a selection of the best tweets from disgruntled Leeds fans:
