Paul Heckingbottom announced his starting XI for the Championship clash with Reading on Saturday afternoon and fans are furious at the inclusion of midfielder Eunan O’Kane.
With Leeds back in 13th place at the start of the day, the focus is less on the play-offs now – that ship has sailed – but seeing which players the manager wants to keep for next season.
And fans have lost patience with O’Kane after a string of poor performances.
The team news was announced on the official Leeds Twitter page ahead of the 3pm kick-off.

Reading are still in danger of getting draw into a relegation struggle and will be keen to secure all three points.
However, they haven’t won at home on a Saturday all season and Leeds fans will fancy their chances at the Madjeski Stadium.
That is if O’Kane can pull his finger out – something the Leeds fans aren’t confident of.
Here are the best reactions to the line-up from Leeds fans:
