Leeds fans react on Twitter to Grimes display v Sutton

By Harvey Byrne

Matt Grimes played the full 90 minutes in Sunday’s FA Cup defeat against Sutton on Sunday – and Leeds fans on Twitter were distraught with his display.

The 21-year-old on loan midfielder made his first appearance for the club since the third round tie against Cambridge earlier in the month.

It soon became apparent why he had been left out of the eleven for a number of fixtures this season with the young player struggling to influence a match against a non-league team.

The player was one of the most criticised for Leeds after famous club fell to a 1-0 defeat against the National League outfit via a Jamie Collins penalty.

A number of Leeds supporters aired their disgust over Grimes on social media with many keen to see him sent back to Swansea.

Grimes made the switch to Leeds from Garry Monk’s former club Swansea on a season-long loan deal.

He has played just 11 times for the Yorkshire giants’ this campaign and supporters will now be hoping they don’t see much more of him before his temporary deal comes to an end.
