Leeds fans react on Twitter to Brighton win against Derby
By Amir Mir
Brighton beat Derby County 3-0 on Friday night in the Championship – and Leeds fans on Twitter were critical of the Rams.
Winger Anthony Knockaert opened the scoring for the home team when the Frenchman drilled his low shot from 20 yards after five minutes.
Sam Baldock then doubled his side’s lead two minutes before the break to give Chris Hughton’s men some breathing space.
However, Steve McLaren’s side failed to make any impact as they produced a lackluster display throughout the game mustering only three shots on goal.
Late into the second half, striker Glenn Murray made sure the points were sealed when he pounced on Scott Carson’s save from Knockheart’s fortunate cross.
