'You can't make it up' - Leeds fans react as Tom Lees scores in play-off semi-final defeat

By Danny Wright

Former Leeds centre-back Tom Lees suffered humiliation on Wednesday night as he scored an own goal in Sheffield Wednesday’s play-off semi-final loss to Huddersfield – and the Whites faithful were quick to react on Twitter.

The 26-year-old Owls player put the ball past his own goalkeeper in the 73rd minute to cancel out Steven Fletcher’s opener for his side.

Lees’ goal forced the game into extra-time but no one else found the net as the game ended 1-1 after 120 minutes.

Huddersfield won the resulting penalty shoot-out to book a spot in the Championship play-off final with Reading at Wembley.

Leeds fans remember the centre-back for his time at Elland Road and how he always seemed to be at fault for something.

Here is a selection of their tweets:

Lees has made 39 appearances for Sheffield Wednesday this season, scoring just once in the narrow 2-1 win over eventual champions Newcastle at Hillsborough in April.

He moved to the south Yorkshire club in 2015 on a free transfer after rising through the ranks of Leeds’ illustrious academy.

The former England Under-21 international, who picked up six caps for the Young Lions, played for Leeds 135 times in all competitions and scored four goals.
